    I am selling several lenses as a bundle, all are in great condition:
    Vivitar 19mm f3.5
    Canon FD 50mm f1.8
    Canon FD 28mm f2.8
    All come with UV filters, m4/3 adapters, and front and rear lens caps.
    Thinking - $250 for all good price?

    The two FD lenses can be found together fairly frequently on Goodwill for under $50 attached to a body or with some other goodies.

    Not familiar with the Viv 19 3.5, or do you mean the 19mm 3.8?

    Yes 3.8 not 3.5. What's the difference in the variety of Canon 50mm FD 1.4? I see there is a regular new FD, an S.C. and S.S.C? is one better than the other?

    There are three versions of the Canon FD 50/1.4.

    "Chromenose" Breech-lock
    S.S.C. (Super Spectra Coating) Breech-lock
    new FD bayonet

    There is no 50/1.4 S.C. (Spectra Coating), but there is a 50/1.8 S.C.

    Despite the nomenclature I think that all of the 50/1.4 lenses used the "Super Spectra Coating", even the early chromenoses. All new FD lenses use it except the 50/1.8. The new FD 50/1.4 was a complete redesign of the older breech-lock models; smaller, lighter, new mount mechanism, 52mm filter thread, and is generally considered to be a touch sharper. My preference is for the new FD lens.

    I agree with Lucky penguin to my knowledge SSC was applied to all medium to high end lenses , low cost lenses only benefit from SC.

    Adorama.com and KEH also have extensive used lens listings. Remember, they have a return policy and a general markup, so when shopping, people can buy yours, or they can buy one from one of those companies, where they can return it if they don't like the lens (Adorama I think has a two week return policy). Also, check FredMiranda.com for similar lenses, and that could give you a good idea on prices on the private sale/used market.

    Having sold a lot of lenses on ebay

    Assuming all are excellent condition with new haze/fungus/scratches and minimal to no internal dust...

    the 50/1.8 FD is worth $25 to $35 with caps
    The 28mm/2.8 FD is worth $29 to $39 with caps
    The Vivitar 19mm/3.5 is worth $125 to $150
    The adapters $20-$25 each used (I assume you have three adapters)

    So you are looking at $239 to $299 pieced out

    Actually, Adorama gives a 90-day warranty on all used items, which includes a 30-day returns policy! (and we have around 25,000 pieces in the used department warehouse at any given time.....)

    If you ever need advice, or after-sales suport - with any order from Adorama Camera, I'm only an email away: Helen@adorama.com
