Yesterday my M 50mm f/4 macro went to a good home, a fellow film shooter who values well-taken-care-of quality lenses from back in the day. He was also the first person not to take the p*ss with a low-ball offer and paid me the €80 I was asking, which I think is a very fair price for such a lens in immaculate condition. I paid €50 for the lens plus an MV1 so I've made a profit of €30 plus a working camera.

Well I just sold my recently-acquired Sigma 400mm F5.6 APO. Having acquired a Vivitar 120-600 there was no need for the other one.

Seems like there is a short story to be written right there. Must be more to the story.

DA 50-200 sold to colleague for cheap who has just bought a KP. Now replaced with the DA55-300ED WR. Makes the discounted price of the 55-300 even more attractive.

passed along my electronically-challenged K-50 and accessories for the cost of shipping...

this was my first DSLR and essentially created my interest in this hobby - kinda sad to see it go, but it was only collecting dust since I replaced it with a K-3 last month...

I love that lens so much (especially now that it's converted to FF) I wouldn't want to see it into any home but mine!

Gave a charity shop five or six 35mm compact cameras and an old camcorder - so old it still used VCR-type tapes.

It was tough.... I'm glad it will be used now - I honestly love the lens, but had not used it in over a year as I didn't have a Pentax body.

Gave the charity shop another load of tat - two super 8 cine cameras, a charger for camcorder battery packs, three fairly horrible 35mm cameras, and four digital cameras that that aren't worth the effort to sell. I'll probably give them some camera bags next time.

Got a K1, hence a lot of things are going to ebay (and it will allow me to buy even more stuff after ) :

- DA*16-50 with box, notice and caps (love every bit of this lens, but won't see much use now)

- 6x7 with 105/2.4, original box, clips, straps, caps, eye-magnifier, and original flyers. (to be fair, the K1 and DA*55/1.4 give a close look, and i'm becoming lazzy these days)

- 6x7 200mm f4 (never used it a lot anyway)

- Vivitar S1 70-210/3.5 (i have the Tammy 70-200 so the Viv' don't see much use even on macro work)

- Yashica Mat in bad shape (same as 6x7, and i din't used it since i got the 6x7)

- Kodak Instamatic 177x (i need room in the closet !)

- Silette LK with notice and flash (i need more room in the closet)

- Olympus AutoZoom A1 (guess what i need even more room in the closet !)

My last bag (for the moment) has been sold (Think Tank Shape Shifter 17). A great bag but doesn't fit my shooting style.

The contents of my camera bag needed an overhaul, I’ve been selling a lot of things to finance that. The biggest thing I’ve sold as of late is a spinning wheel



Selling those items has allowed me to upgrade the body from K200 to. K3 and to buy a DA 55-300 HD WR.

I’ve currently got the K200 and a Sigma 18-250 on Fleabay in hopes I can get enough money to pick up a 35 macro. With that, I should be set for a while.
