Hi all,

Firstly sorry to write in English.  My Chinese is really bad (I left Taiwan when I was 13 years old), I can read but typing in Chinese is really slow.  

Anyway, I have got two cameras (MZ-5 and DS) and got a few primes in the same focal length that I don't know if I should keep or sell them.  This is what I have at the moment:
Zenitar 16/2.8 FishEye, Tokina 17/3.5, FA28/2.8, M28/3.5, FA35/2, M35/2.8, FA50/1.4, M50/1.7, FA50/2.8, K85/1.8, M100/2.8, FA135/2.8, K135/2.5, M150/3.5

I am thinking of keeping the following:
Zenitar 16/2.8 FE, Tokina 17/3.5, FA28/2.8, FA35/2, FA50/1.4, FA50/2.8, K85/1.8, M100/2.8, FA135/2.8, K135/2.5, M150/3.5

I am thinking about selling the rest:
M28/3.5, M35/2.8, M50/1.7

What do you think?  I am not too sure if I should sell M150/3.5 or keep it.  And I am  not too sure about M28/3.5 because I heard it is sharper than the FA28/2.8.  And if I decide to sell, how much can I get for them?

Thanks
Kenny

It really depends on how often you use them, and if you want to keep them as collection, good condition old lenses are not that easy to find..., but since you don't have any mechanical camera bodies, it seems reasonable to sell those manual focus primes that overlap in focal lengths,

Just in case you ever want to sell the K85/1.8, send me a message...ha!

Hmm... I am in Melbourne, Australia.  If I decide to sell the 3 lenses, can I still sell here using the buy/sell/trade section?  Or is it only for people in Taiwan?  Otherwise, I can send the lenses to my friend in Taiwan I gues...

Thanks
Kenny

All 3 lenses are in very good/excellent condition and that's one of the reasons I am not sure if I should sell them!  They took me a while to find but after I got the AF leses, I don't use them much.

Originally I was thinking of getting a MX but then if I am getting either K100D or K10D later, I probably won't be using the MX much after that.

With regard to the K85/1.8, I probably won't be selling it unless I get FA77/1.8 to replace it  =)  =)

Thanks
Kenny

哈!我和您想的一樣,
要是我有您的鏡頭想賣,也會賣這幾顆。

M150/3.5在數位機上不甚好用,
雖然很小隻,聽說散景也不錯,
但是最短對焦距離1.8m,只能當望遠鏡用,
但是150mm又不夠遠,就變得有點雞肋了。

If I were you, besides of those duplicated-ranged lens, I would also sell those non-Pentax wide angle and trade in a Fa-20-35 / DA 16-45 instead

Yes, most likely I will be selling the M28/3.5, M35/2.8 and M50/1.7.  It is always hard when it comes to selling lenses, especially good lenses.  Eg.  here is a couple of photos taken with M35/2.8:





I will probably do more shooting with M150/3.5 before I decide what to do with it because it takes pretty ok photos, eg:





Thanks for your input!!

Kenny

Actually I've got both of them  =)  =)  I bought the FA20-35 about 6 months ago and only just got the 16-45/4 2nd-hand this month.

I did a comparison between DA18-55 and Tokina 17/3.5 and the Tokina is better with distortion but worse with flare.  Eg:



Flare problem:


I might do a test later on to compare it with the DA16-45.  I might sell it after that depending on the result.

With the Zenitar 16/2.8, it is a fish-eye lens.  I bought this lens just for fun.  It is the cheapest fish-eye lens I can afford (~US100) so I don't think I will be selling it.  And it is actually pretty sharp too!

Thanks
Kenny
