If those lenses in that list are ones that you want to get rid of, I would say get rid of the cheaper ones before getting rid of the really good ones. If nothing else, at least hang on to the 16-50 since you actually have a good copy of it.

I've noticed that you've got a lot of film bodies--how many do you need anyhow? Along with the lenses, you could get a good bit of money by getting rid of most of those bodies. If I were you, wouldn't keep more than a couple of film bodies--perhaps the MX and the K1000 or if you want to keep the AF body, then the MX and SF1.

What kind of job do you want to get, anyhow?
