    Well, I am done now, so I guess it's your turn.

    Hardly enough to be worth the effort.
    Some folks tell me I should hurry up and sell the darkroom gear while I can still get a few bucks for it. Nah. I figure if it gets to the point where I can no longer get the materials to use it, I'll hang a sign on it that says "Museum" and charge admission.

    Who needs a Damned SLR anyway. My rangefinders work great.

    All my film stuff I could probably get 250 or 300 for it.

    Now all of my photography equipment, Rebel XTi, lenses, tripods, filters, this accessory, that gadget, somewhere in the realm of 1,xxx.

    Now if we are talking selling expensive things most consider as toys, if I sold my bicycle, 86' Tommaso SLX full Dura-Ace 7700 / Ultegra 6600 and two wheelsets, I could get more for that than double Kelly Blue Book for my car.

    and for the record, I am a convert from digital format, I still shoot it, I just prefer film.

    There is no good reason, at least not for me. I get far more enjoyment out of shooting film (or is it merely playing with film cameras?) than I do out of digital, and I hate the post-processing dance with a passion. But I won't go there because it'd turn into yet another F vs D rant.

    Not enough to even think about it!

    I would get a whole lot less for my Canon F1s and lenses than I paid for them. Thanks, Canon, for making the FD lenses useless on newer cameras.

    If I piled up all my gear and sold it, it would bring maybe $5,000. But where would I be then? Hardly rich and without a decent camera.

    It's interesting to think about the relative value of cameras and how they hold value over the years. I think my Rollei TLR wins hands down.

    I think about this often, but the answer is "not much", unfortunately. None of my gear is really desirable right now (even the Leicas I have) plus dealers in my city are jerks about buying things.

    I already sold off the desirable (read: money-maker) bits I didn't want, and am keeping everything else. Since I'm broke this year, nothing new is being added.

    I think more than 10k€; because I have bought many years ago some old cameras that were cheap, and are now expensive.
    And I have never tried to sold one of them because I am a bad seller...

    Here, not much.

    Going on KEH's prices:

    Nikon F4 in EX+ cond and with MF-23 back, plus additional MB-21 grip, $525
    Nikon F3P body in BGN cond, no MF-6B back nor MD-4, probably $325ish
    Nikon F2A body in BGN cond, black, $144
    Nikon F FTN black "Apollo" in BGN cond with motor plate, $347 or so
    Nikomat FT2 chrome, in high BGN cond, probably $65 or so.
    Asahi Pentax Spotmatic in BGN condition, $47 or so

    Lenses:

    20mm f/3.5 Nikkor-UD in low BGN cond, with AI ring, and NPK, $180
    28-70mm f/3.5-4.5 AF-D Nikkor in EX cond, $89
    35-70mm f/3.3-4.5 AF Nikkor, early version, BGN, $45
    50mm f/2 Nikkor-H NPK BGN non-AI, $39
    50mm f/2 Nikkor non-AI, EX, $53
    50mm f/1.8 AF Nikkor early in EX cond, $105
    50mm f/1.4 Super Takumar in EX+ cond, $48
    55mm f/2.8 Micro-Nikkor AIS in BGN cond, $99
    300mm f/4.5 Nikkor AIS IF-ED in BGN cond, $275ish

    Misc. stuff:

    Nikon SB-17 in EX cond with case, instruction book and diffuser, $35ish
    Nikon SB-27 in EX+ cond with case and book, $49
    Vivitar 285HV in BGN cond, $45
    Nikon MD-12 (saving this for a decent FM2n or FM, etc) in BGN cond, $14
    Bogen 3221 tripod with 3055 head in EX cond, $175

    $2704.00, if I don't include the digi stuff. If that's thrown in, ~$3000 or so. Enough for a decent car or a restoration of my current 25 year old Volvo 240 wagon. I'd probably just spend the money on buying everything back, though.
