Sell nothing. It seems to me that the fun you are getting out of the equipment is worth more than the money you will get selling the stuff.

Generally, I agree, but if stuff is sitting put away someplace, unused, then why keep it? May as well get something for it. It’s NEVER as much as you think you should get for it, of course.

Some people just like having stuff. Or feel nostalgic about stuff. The hassle of getting rid of stuff is off putting, too.

Packing up a box of unused cameras and lenses to send off to MPB or KEH doesn’t seem too bad if you can use the proceeds to get something you really want. Basically trade-in a few low-end and kit lenses and put that toward getting an exceptional lens, for instance.
