The M50 will go for about $100-120, while the A50/2.8 should go for about $200-230. I wouldn't bother with the M50 considering it's pedestrian. The A50/2.8 is an excellent lens.

Don't forget Ebay takes about 9% in fees while PP takes about another 4% or so in payment.

Thanks.

I listed the M50mm f4 Macro for $140 in local Kijiji, in other word, I decided to keep it.

Personally, I would not keep the M50/4 when I already have the A50/2.8. The A50 is markedly better and easier to use. An extra stop of light in macro mode helps with all the light fall off even at 1:2 mag.

They're your lens of course, you just might sell it for that price.
