Where would you recommend listing it? Here in the EE or is there a good site for selling used camera gear?

If you just want it gone, send it to the used department at B&H, they'll offer you a decent dealers price where they can still profit.
Not sure if you have any brick and mortar shops locally, but they might also either make an offer, or put it out on consignment.
@NorthPolar probably knows some other sales avenues, he seems to be on top of just about everything in gear.

I got a quote from Adorama. Better than pawn shop pricing, but not by much.

I'll probably just throw it up on Facebook marketplace and here in the EE.

Honestly, I compare the used for sale prices from B&H and KEH, then list it for that. Facebook and similar first, because you can get more without having to ship IMO.

That's my thinking.

I just sold a bunch of camera gear on Ebay after going mirrorless. I didnt set it up as an auction and just as a buy it now/best offer sale.
I made a killing.
Everything sold within a day of posting and for a lot more than what I would have gotten waiting for a while for it to sell on camera forums.

PayPal and Ebay fees included I made a couple hundred more than had I waited it out on the forums.

I sell a lot of stuff on the Facebook marketplace, letgo, and offerup.

out of curiosity what are you thinking about letting go of?

If you live in a metro area...Craigslist has worked well for me, sold a lot of cam gear over the years. Simple and free.

I'm too cheap to pay for a membership at any other forum.

So you gonna price it right here or not?

Might save you the trouble of having to go through that whole song and dance of dickering in the EE section...

No. I don't want this to become a backhanded sale ad.

And FYI, I'm only selling to upgrade. D7200 is gonna be the replacement. My 2 favorite lenses, although autofocus, do not have built in focus motors.

And my hands are starting to hurt too much for the fine motor control needed for focusing manually. Damn arthritis.

Make sure you get some SanDisk Extreme Pro 95 UHS-I cards in whichever size fits your budget.

The 7200 will gain a practically unlimited buffer using those cards.

Those are the only cards I use. I prefer 32 meg.

I did just post it in the EE. Listing may start with Nikon D5300.

The 32GB SanDisk Extreme Pro 95 is UHS-II, which has an extra row of contacts on the back that makes I-Os way faster than UHS-I. I have an old computer that still runs Win XP and can only handle SD cards in FAT; I am really nervous about putting a MS patch to my Win XP to handle exFAT files. FAT has a file size limitation that you could possible hit when using modern day 1080p & 4K video files. For media >32GB, by convention among SD mfg'rs, it comes to you as exFAT.
