50mm f/1.0, To Keep or Not To Keep, This is a question?

So, I have one of the 50mm f/1.0 lenses of old. In virtually like new shape. I seldom seldom use it. Modern ISOs are so good I don’t need the speed. And the ultra shallow depth of field, I just don’t do that any more.

This old Glass, a Glimpse of the past.

Every time I think about passing it on, I think I could never find another without spending stupid amounts of money.

Since I’m home sick, bored, and have way too much time on my hands, I though I’d gather your thoughts about keeping this old chunk of glass.

Pass it on or hang on to it?

I’ve not moved to the mirror body world yet (7D, 5D-4). I wonder how it would work for video in the future?

Do you think it will keeps it's value?  Or will the brave new worlds of new mount styles / glass put it out to pasture?

Feel free to chastise me for rambling…

All the Best, Jeff
