What have you just SOLD?

We have the "What have you just BOUGHT?" thread, so I thought it might be interesting to see what people have sold and why?

I recently sold a Sony A7R II and a Sony RX100 VI. Why? I just don`t like the feel of Sony cameras. They just are not fun to use for me. I was continuing to use my Fujis even with these two being newer. I figured if I`d rather use my older cameras, I should sell the Sonys. I feel good about it.

Recently sold a Mamiya 7 kit (3 lenses) and a similar Fujica GL690 b kit . Both truly amazing cameras , but projecting slides had become an obsession and 6x6 better fills the bill . Unless you're a collector , sell them ! Peter

i just gave away a fuji xe1 plus fuji 15-45 lens...

recently went through a shake up of my gear and traded away the 55-200...sold the fast 16... 23...56...bought the xpro3 and lastly, bought the 10-24 and 16-80... along with the 4 fujicrons...still have my 3 xe3 bodies.

normally when i get into a gear fit i sell everything and start over with a different brand of gear, but i like fuji too much, it feels great in my hands and honestly the gear is better than i am.

i want to add the fuji 90 to my bag and then calm things down for a long while.

Recently I downsized my sony gear from A7RIII to A7RII to A7 to finally getting rid of all my Sony gears and after 6 years I'm back to Canon and grabbed a EOS R

I don't miss Sony one bit.

I just let go of a very nice v4 Summicron 50. I’m finding myself more drawn to “character” lenses in this focal length.

I have started downsizing my hoard in July. So far I have sold/traded away around 200 cameras and I am not sure how many lenses. Mostly folders in various formats, large and medium format Graphics, a bunch of wooden cameras, 35mm SLRs and some fixed lens RFs. Still have quite a bunch to move.

I have realized that I can’t use or repair them all. It was just sitting in boxes. It freed up quite a decent amount of funds in addition to some valuable things I received in return.

I just sold my Leica M6. I had three Leicas (2 film and 1 digital) and found that, of the film Leicas, I strongly preferred using my Leica M3.

I sold the M6 primarily to fund the purchase of the Nikon 300 f/4 PF lens, which will be a great lens for telephoto and will be a big improvement over my 70-300 lens,

75 items sold on eBay in past 6 months.
Unloaded all sorts of camera and tech that I no longer use, never used, bought-repaired-sold or found-in-recycling-cleaned or repaired -sold.
Recovered $3000 USD.
Bought some lenses. Using rest towards vacation in December.
100pc of Koni-Omega gear is gone. Saved two Rubbermaid containers worth of space.
Sold 3 620 spools. Earned $10CAD.
Big and small, I am getting rid of it all.

My cameras have become my children; I can't sell them.

The last camera I sold was maybe in early 1970 - an Argus C3 - because I wanted a real 35mm camera.

This month I've sold a Rolleicord Vb, Leica IIf (factory conversion from a I), Leica IIIc, Canon AE-1 Program and Nikkormat FT3 with lenses for all cameras.

I've got a Leica IIIc and IIIg that I will be putting up for sale soon. And currently debating whether I should sell or exchange my Leica M3 + DR Summicron.

Keith,

That’s an impressive list.

Sold? What a strange concept. I buy with the best of them, but sell...it seems such a alien idea.

really liking the xpro3...fit and finish and feel are all up there!
jury is still out on the lens...it went wonky after the second upgrade and then seemed to right itself but it has left me a bit skeptical...
