Should I keep or should I sell?


I have a few PK-mount lenses that I use in my manual film camera and my digital camera. I have too many already, and I'd like to get rid of a few of them, as some ranges overlap and I don't have much room. Can anyone give me some advise on this?

This is what I have:

MF lenses:
+ Pentax SMC 28mm, f2.8
+ Sears MC 50mm, f1.7
+ Sears MC 135mm, f2.8 (this one has the aperture blades stuck in f2.8)
+ Quantaray 70-210mm, f4-5.6, with the "A" setting
+ Vivitar Series 1, 70-210mm, f3.5 (made by Kiron) -- this is a keeper for sure
+ Vivitar Series 1, 28-105mm, f2.8-3.5 (made by Cosina) -- this is a keeper too...

AF Lenses:
+ Tamron 28-200, f3.8-5.6
+ Pentax 50mm F1.4 -- this is a keeper
+ Pentax 35-80mm f4-5.6

I think all your keepers are the ones that people would be most interested in buying.

I'm definitely selling the Quantaray, as its range is already covered by the Series 1.

Does anyone have any experience with the SMC-M 28mm f2.8? Maybe I could sell it as well, if I'll keep the 28-105...

you could sell the M28 but it wouldn't bring too much money.
The 3 lenses that would give you some money would be the 50/1.4 and the Vivs S1.
The 2 AF zooms would bring you some money but again not too much.
