Forgive my impertinence, but why on earth would you sell any of them? They would bring so little in the way of money that I have trouble thinking you're parting with them in order to pay the rent or put groceries on the table. I could skip a few soft drinks and tater chips for a couple of days and save up as much as any of my film SLRs (and most of my rangefinders) would bring. For me the whole fun of shooting film is getting to use a variety of cameras with different qualities and features, something that the proliferation of digital and the consequent plummeting price of old film cameras enables us to engage in for little more than pocket change as far as the price of the cameras themselves is concerned.

So true! I have eight film cameras in working condition and have no desire to sell any of them. If nothing else, they make for a pretty display in the curio cabinet...

(Was also looking at Zorki's and Feds...very, very bad...)
