Re: My poor legacy portrait lenses!

I accumulated several legacy lenses in the past 3 years, but put them all on ebay today. They were fun to play with and the legacy macro lens was used to digitize what remains of my old transparencies and negatives. Now I find they are never used. My MFT lenses do a better job.

Konica AR 40 f1.8 - superbly sharp at f4. Not quite as sharp below that.

Konica AR 55 f3.5 macro. Finished with it after digitizing all remaining film. Very Good Lens.

Tokina SD AF 400mm AT-X F5.6-32.  Good lens, but difficult for me to manual focus accurately (My vision is not as good as it once was).

In short, why keep lenses you don't use?
