    i have thought about selling some or all of the Minoltas at one time or the other, but realize i would not get adequate value for them. $30-$50 for a fully functional camera with optional lenses. if i sell the cameras then i have to part with the lenses. the 85mm f/1.7 is too precious to let go...then i would have to decide which body i wanted to keep to shoot that lens and the kiron 28 f/2 with and the 50mm f/1.4 and f/1.7...just easier to keep them all and keep a variety of film inside of them. i actually with the near silent XDs that i have right now. this has turned into a wandering blithering mess so far and i hope you can understand my frustration and confusion about these lovely old cameras. if i keep them lubed and in use, i can shoot with them until all the spare parts are gone forever.

    Selling--that's an advanced topic.

    Well, I have a pre--ani baby speed graphic. Graflok back, rollfilm holder, Heiland flash, box of bulbs...that would probably be first. I have seriously been considering that for a few months now.

    Close would be my Bronica. I have always wanted a MF SLR.when I got rid of my Commie-Cam (Salyut C) I started hankering for a replacement about a year later...I bet it would happen again!

    I've already sold off the cameras I'm willing to sell off. I did get seller's remorse from my Canon A-1 so guess what, I have another one now.

    Yes, right on! Thanks to the National Health Service that's the sort of horrible choice we would never have to make over here. Though it has to be said that Bush's Poodle (aka Tony Blair) is doing his best to screw it up. And to think I actually voted for him once....

    One of my 824 Agfa Optima Sensors would have to go then.
    Future, present, past. Life, decay, death, birth. I try to catch a glimpse of history as it unfolds before my eyes, and to pass that on to future generations. I am a witness of my time.

    You're a braver man than I am. I would never have confessed to that!

    Dear Ole,

    Nor would I. But then, I'd never have to. I joined the Liberal Party at 16...

    Of course, the Liberal girls were an incentive. But in the subsequent 40 years, I've seen no reason to join any other party (and very few to renew my subscription to the Liberals, especially since I got married).

    Cheers,

    R.

    Hmmmmm,
    The 8x10's first, then the Hasselblads, next would be the 4x5's then I guess the 6x7 Pentaxes followed by the 5x7's. Last would be my H3 Hp's.

    It may be that the future holds just such a "yard Sale" to take place here in Canon City in the very near future.

    George, The other night I considered posting the question "If you had to sell all but one of your cameras, which one would you keep?". I didn't because I was afraid of being responsible for causing severe mental and emotional distress among the membership as they weighed the options. It would be sort of like asking "If you found yourself in an insurmountable financial dilema, which of your children would you sell to the Gypsies?"

    Your question is much better. For me it would be the Nikonos. Sad, but I can't really justify it by the amount of use that it gets.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.
