I do not think that buying legacy lenses saves money. I think it is waist of money. Except of Sigma 2.8/90 MACRO, I do not use the rest of my collection (8 more lenses)

By my estimates, I've lost approx. $600 on legacy lenses and adapters

Looking for equilibrium...

assuming you paid FMV for those lenses, you should be able to sell them for about what you paid for them.

Can't say that about your native lenses, can you?

Another huge advantage of legacy lenses.

They really don't cost you anything if you don't like them.

Assuming your time is worth nothing to you.

If you make $40/hour, and it takes you an hour of effort to sell a lens on eBay for $40, then there's no benefit to selling the lens vs. throwing it in the garbage.
