    You'd need a little more info on the Hassie lenses. Are they C, CF, CFE, CFi, CB, etc?

    Yep its not very exhaustive is it? I've emailed for a more detailed list.
    Condition is near mint, I know the photographer that appraised them and trust his opinion. He didnt compile "this" list. This is one from someone in the admin dept of the institution its coming from.

    I'll update it when they get back to me.

    You need to do a bit more digging

    Have a look at somewhere like ffordes (http://www.ffordes.com/) and price up your stuff there

    It depends on how much of a relationship you have with the person trying to sell the stuff - 50% of ffordes price for a freind, less for a casual aquaintance

    You said it is all in Mint condfition - Mint to a retailer like ffordes usually means you have taken it out of the box and perhaps openned the plastic bag - so only very superficial damage drops its grade hugely

    Good luck

    The Blad lenses are CF type.

    They came back to me with a price they'd like or near too it. £3500...... cough splutter.

    If anyone want to take them up on the offer let me know and I'll give you the details.

    That's probably a very good price, but they'd be far better selling it through someone else on a commission basis item by item, that keeps VAT to a minimum and they'd get more of the dfinal sale prices.
