APS-C & FF cameras combination

I recently bought a FF body and was wondering if I should sell my APS-C bodies or keep one.

I am sure many of us here has FF & APS-C bodies, just wondering how do you manage fair usage between the both?

If you have any fast long lenses for APS-C, I'd hang on to those- you'll probably have to spent a lot more to get the FF equivalents.

Agreed Adam.

APS-C for Tele and Macro is the go and the rest can be FF.

Yeah, keep that Tammy 70-200 on the APSC and do a fast wide zoom on the FF and you've got a killer dual-wield setup. Plus, you've got a great lens lineup for the Pentax APSC line, I think you should not be hasty selling it all - until you can replicate your capability with the FF rig.
