I won a camera. Do I keep it or sell it?

I won this Pentax KM camera with 18-55 mm lens from the Full House Lottery.  I picked it up today, and now I'm wondering whether to keep it or sell it.

I think you might find this gadget useful. Use it to take high quality pictures ideal for albums, posting on internet and other uses. That camera is on the newest models in existence, made last year. You're very lucky to own such a sophisticated camera so I recommend you hang on to it.

I have to agree with Will on this one.



I think ya should keep it and use it for family photos and anything else that might come up.

I think I'll see if I can sell it.  I'm doing so by placing an ad on Kijiji.



I already have a digital camera.  Though it's a few years old and only 5 megapixels, it still works fine.  Plus it's more of a pocket camera, unlike this one.



If I can't sell it, I won't be disappointed, as it sounds like it's a nice camera from those I've spoken to.  Still, it sounds like Nikon or Canon models are more popular, so if I do end up selling it, I can put the money towards a better camera when the need arises.  And as I don't need a fancy camera right now, waiting a few years can only mean I can get something better for less.
