Unfortunately a large portion of the giant killing disappears when trying to sell second hand versus the giants.Sort of a catch 22.

All the second hand gear for sale on the forum , sometimes at such ridiculously low prices are giant killers.  Honestly I enjoy my R40k setup more often than not compared to some R100k-200k systems I hear un shops.  New gear is just ridiculously overpriced

I have a different experience....
The percentage loss and actual rand and cent value lost in Giants are far greater in my experience and even then if expensive see how many buyers you can get...
giants in my book can only be attempted used cause then the initial depreciation has already taken effect...
I wouldn't be able to afford them otherwise anyway ... not even the mid giant stuff...
