takumar-F Zoom 28-80mm Macro

Hi, I have a K10d and and older SF10. While looking thru my old camera bag, I came across a Takumar-F zoom 28-80 with a MACRO setting. My question to this fine forum is this: Will this be of any use to me with my K10D? I already have an 18-55, 55-300 and 50 1.4. Also, from my old camera I have a a Takumar-F zoom 70-200 and a Sigma 28-200. Do I need these old lenses? Should I sell them? is there a market for them as well as my SF10?. All of the newer lenses for my K10 are Pentax. Thank you in advance

The two takumar F's you're referring two aren't the cream of the crop, so if you decided to sell them, you'd only probably get a hundred bucks or so.

Your DA lenses overlap with these, and have better IQ, so I guess you don't really need them. The sigma zoom is nice, but you're already covered from 18 to 300 mm.

There is a secondary market for old lenses. I've been investigating it myself. YOu can read the reviews of the lenses here and see what they prices are for them in the review and you can look them up on eBay. Make certain you put in Pentax with the type of lens as I've seen some rather wild variations in price based on brand of camera the lens works with.
