canon returned my 5Dc for this fix a few months ago.  nothing wrong with the mirror, but wanted to perform preventative maintenance so i don't run into the issue while out and about.

was VERY pleased to find they not only reinformed the mirror, but cleaned it spotless, replaced my deteriorating mirror foam, and shook out what looked like a cat's litter box in the pentraprism, all shipped overnight to and from... at no charge to me.

yay for canon services!!!   ;D ;D ;D

Hi BL, I was reading up on the same topic and noticed that you had a good experience with Canon. May I know which service center you had it sent to? I just bought a 5Dc from KEH and am thinking of sending it to Canon for cleaning, shuttle count, and whatever needs to be done.

I buy and sell stuff all the time... so I'll give you my assessment. 

a 5Dc sell for around $500 in good condition... so that's a good start.
I sold a like new 28-135 the other day for $230 with my take away being around $210. So 710 total.
a set of light reflectors can be had for around $20... so used.. we are talking about $5.  Sorry... it doesn't matter how much you paid for them unless they are top of the line and there is still a huge demand for them... so $5.
Extra batteries are nice... but they won't sell individually...
I've sold new bags for $10 that are normally $20... and I've given away $50 bags to close a deal.  Bags generally don't hold their value very well. 
The question is... what is that second lens?  It is a usm lens... it is an ef lens... but that's about all I know.  I don't think it is an 85mm which you can get $300 for, and I don't think it is a 50mm f/1.4 which you can get $250 for...
I'm not sure what the tripod looking thing is... so maybe...?

In short... yeah... $900 isn't too far off from a reasonable asking price, but if someone offers you $800... and the gear isn't in like new condition... I'd take it.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

Like I said... 900 is about right.  The 28-135 and the 28-80 are older lenses... and they aren't very impressive... at least not compared to the 18-135, 24-105, etc.  The grip adds value to the package, but on its own isn't worth very much.  Just the way things are... so maybe someone will give you $900... but if you tried to sell everything separately... you would probably receive WAY less. 

I can't speak to the manfrotto gear... I'm ignorant.
