    What's your price for the empty space inside the foam liners?

    Sorry, Xterra. I thought you were joking with this listing. No offense intended. But I confess that I have no idea why anyone would want to buy an empty lens box.

    I see similar items sold on ebay. Some people are collectors and want such things to go with a lens they purchased elsewhere.

    Its OK Xterra, some people are probably not aware there are people who buy items like yours. Good luck with your sale.

    It could be worthwhile for someone with the lens and without the box.

    Box adds value when you go to sell.

    Yes, as fractal points out the reason (for most people) is resale value. I don't think there is any question that MIB brings higher/more bids on eBay. I myself have almost been both a seller and a buyer for an empty box:

    A while back there was a WTB post on this forum for an empty NEX6 box. I had one and nearly sold it to the member figuring I would never use it (if I could sell my closet full of boxes at $15 a pop I could buy a really nice legacy lens!). But I realized I probably wouldn't be keeping my 6 nearly as long as I originally thought so I kept the box and I believe it substantially increased the price i got when selling on eBay.

    Conversely I recently bought a lens on eBay for about $250 less than similar boxed lenses were selling for (a 56mm f/1.2 for "another system). Otherwise it was mint and coincidentally I saw an empty box for it selling a few weeks later. I nearly bought the box for future resale and probably would have except I do think this lens is a keeper plus I couldn't bring myself to pay high s&h for an "empty box".
