    What to keep and what to get rid of.

    Hi All,

    Over the last several months, I have found myself with having a few to many lenses and a few of them have to go. Mainly because I just bought a Cooke XVa, and need to finance the monster. And the wife will kill me if I dont.

    I already sold my Nikon 450mm, and now I have three 300mm lenses, at least one of which has to go. I have a Fuji 300C, a Fuji 300mm CMW and a Dr. Optics 300 Germinar. At least one has to go, but not sure which. Right now I am leaning toward the 300C.

    Also, I have a 240mm Nikon, a 250mm Fuji F/6.3 CMW and now thanks to Jim Moore a 240mm G-Claron. The G-Claron is a keeper, so either the Nikon or the Fuji has got to go.

    Just looking for any opinions to help me decide.

    Thanks!

    Gary

    My budget is tight, but what are you looking to get for the 300 C?

    Best regards,

    Keep the 240 Nikkor, as it has a huge image circle. Ditch the 250 cmw and both the fuji 300s. the 300 Germinar will be the hardest of the three to replace, and is a fantastic piece of optics to begin with.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for the help. At this point, I am going to get rid of the 300C and the 250mm Fuji. I will hold onto the 300CMW since it has been a favorite of mine.

    Regards & Thanx.

    Might be cheaper to get rid of the wife. Mine is kinda expensive too. All I can say is, that everything I've gotten rid of that was of any quality related to photography and other hobbies, I've regretted it later.

    Actually, it might be MORE expensive to get rid of the wife these days...... So, keep all the lenses.

    I know I will regret getting rid of anything. But considering I like my head on my shoulders and not on a pike in the garden. I need to do something. Unless somebody wants to trade me some lenses for my wife, its the best I can do at the moment!

    Thanx Again.

    When in doubt, sell everything.

    If you can not choose yourself sell the ones that will sell for the highest price.
