    I have been threatening to do it for quite some time but I always seemed to have reasons not to...well the day finally came and I cleared out 90% of my old legacy glass and I am feeling both lighter and pleased. I did keep a few things but they were carefully chosen.

    I kept my Hexanon 24/2.8 and 135/3.2 because I love the images I get form them (the 24 especially). They just have a very nice look. I also kept my Super Takumar 50/1.4 because I love the way it feel in the hand (and the images aren't too shabby either) and my Helios 44M (favorite FSU lens). The rest went to good homes. I also pared down my native stuff to my Panasonic 20 and a new Olympus 45. So far I am not missing anything that I've sold and the proceeds bought me the Olympus 45, helped get trade for an E-P3 and paid for a G2 I just got (and that I am loving having again).

    Oh, I also kept two Pentax 110 lenses...mostly because I forgot they were there but they're pretty fun none the less.

    This has been kind of like a new haircut...but for gearheads.

    Nice. You must've offloaded a lot of gear, Kevin!

    Well, apparently I had gear that folks wanted. Just lucky I suppose. I feel fortunate that it worked out the way it did.
