What shall I keep?

I am planning to sell some of my gears.

I recently found that the battery I bought for my Yashica Mat124G works on Spotmatic. So I decided to sell my MX with a bunch of pk mount lens.

A 24mm/2.8 should be gone, since it costs much and I seldom use it. I have got DA15mm Ltd and for landscape, I would rather use my digital gear. Moreover, since I have a Leica body, I can go for Heliar 15/4.5 if I want a ultra-side lens. Or Xpan is on my wish-list...

M50/1.4 will be on the selling list too, since I have supertakumar 55/1.8 and FA43/1.9.

M28/3.5 and M40/2.8 is what I cannot make a decision on...I have Voigtlander 40mm/1.4, and FA43/1.9, but M40/2.8 is a pancake...and I will still keep my LX while the MX is gone. ..

For M28/3.5, the viewangle is really amazing and this lens is famous for resolution. However, I have Supertakumar 35/3.5 and FA 31/1.8, more, Hexar AF, too many lenses whose viewangle is close to M28/3.5...

Actually, I seldom used my FA limited except for Portrait...

And my FA 31mm/1.8 Silver is almost new, and I prefer not to mount it on my film camera when I am going for some street photography...So maybe...I still need a lens to cover the 28mm-35mm range...

I could not comment much on all your lenses, but the FA Ltd. I would definitely keep both FA Ltd, or at least the FA31mm f1.8. This lens is a beauty well worth to keep, nd the IQ is outstanding.

More you may regard your FA31mm silver edition as an investment. It will only increase its value., and you may use it with any future new Petnax that you mght buy in the future.

Food for thought...
