sell the Elmarit, the refractive index of glass in apo is much higher, = better off axis, unless you like single coated lens performance(SC), =lowercontrast pastel colours.

yes keep Elmar but you wont get much for the Hector, even if mint, I'd sell both if not using 135mm.

close eyes sell M5 it has cult >>$ status
