Is it fair to trade A* 300mm f/4 + CZ 35/F2.4 for 77mm ?

I'm deadly wanting a portrait lens for my K-30 ,,,, i have pentax A* 300mm f/4 that i don't use much and a very good and great carl zeiss flektogon 35mm f/2.4 ,,, i recently got the 31mm limited so i don't use the CZ ,,,, although limited and CZ have same IQ at F/2.4

Is it fair to trade the 2 lenses for 77mm limited ??

A*-$490-recently closer to $400
Zeiss-$63-recently closer to $50

Ltd-$686. Realistically has been hovering around $750

I'd say no based on the recent market values, but if someone is wanting to trade for it, I'd say yes

Be careful using ebay for a price guideline. Seems most of the stuff I see on there now days can be found cheaper elsewhere. Not saying that is the case here, only saying to be careful.

Carl Zeiss 35mm F2.4 Flektogon MC Lens Reviews - Carl Zeiss Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

I was going off of those prices. None are quite recent, but even if it was $250, you're still $100 short. Egyptian prices could be different than pricing here, that would not surprise me, but I was going off of the data that we have acquired here. If you have someone that will do that trade, I think you're in good shape

Given CZJ Flektogon is definitely around $200 minimum. I don't know much about the A lens prices but with the numbers above, that trade would seem reasonably fair.

I believe the Zeiss goes for ~$50 is 50/2.8, not 35/2.4

At the end of the day that's what trade is all about, values don't really come into it.

As long as both parties are happy, it's a win win for all concerned.
