Is this trade worthwhile
I have and am considering trading:
Nikon series e 70-210mm
Nikon fg that needs the focusing screen replaced
Working gossen scout 2
Soligor 85-205 f/3.8
Vivitar 90-230 f/4.5
Vivitar 75-205 f/3.8
Working praktica tl
Who is getting the upper hand?
I want these lenses mainly to use on my 60d(which I am getting in a month to make films)
Yeah I know what you mean. The only lens I really want is the 75 to 205
I am in no way going to digital photography. Haha. It's to make 1080p quality videos with. I already have an f4 so an fg doesn't hold much use. I just got a takumar 50mm 1.4 a mamiya sekor 35mm 2.8 and a takumar 135mm 3.5 and a spotmatic for 60 bucks. I just likeed what I saw when I watched some clips filmed with the 75 to 205 so I became interested. I took your advice and told the guy never mind though. I'm probky gonna save a few hundred bucks and get a nice m42 mount zoom. With a fotodiox adapter, you get some incredible image quality out of a lot of m42 stuff on canon dslrs. Before you hate on digi though, keep in mind it is to make 1080p short films and action clips with .
Edit: my fg isn't even functional haha, I'm nit worried about being stuck with nothing if the 60d I am getting has problems. I have several film cameras. And eh I never use autofocus it makes no sense to seek autofocus rather than manual focus for me.

A working FG is a sweet camera but their focus screens are not user swappable. The 70-210 is a slouch compared to the 75-150 E series zoom. Given your interests and what you'd get, I'd say go for it.

You are always so friendly and knowledgeable, like many members of this site. I appreciate you trying to help me out! What would you recommend for 400ish ?
