I was thinking this too.

i might add think about getting a little camera, be it mirrorless or p&s. my daughter is 15 months now and i've hardly ever used my leica 350/4.8 during those fifteen months despite the fact that it was probably my most used lens prior to her birth. no time and no room for it when i'm out with her. little lenses on my NEX are easy to take with me on lunch at work or out for a walk with my daughter (i've gotten good at one handed shooting). it's not the same, but it allows me to continue to enjoy my hobby despite the massive reduction in time. i'm sure someone with as good an eye as you would have no trouble making fantastic images even with a camera phone. a little camera won't give you more time or daylight but it'll be easier to take advantage of the small little moments you have.

^ Yes sebboh, quite right. And I'm sorry to say AF is often a must for toddlers so this is another reason to avoid NEX+alts for these action pics. I'd take a E-PM1 if budget allows or any goos P&S (I chose Elph 300 because it's *tiny*).

If it was easily acquired, then dump.

There will never again be a manufacturer daring to produce anything as weird and unique as the 58/1.2. Keep it and have your son inherit it. While waiting for that I'm sure you'll find an occasional use for it. If you havent grinded the retainer ring for the 5D2 dont bother, your son will be using mirrorless stuff.

Get a stylish leaded box if you're lucky enough to have the radioactive version.

If it were me, I'd keep the ZE 21/2.8, 35/1.4, 85/1.4, and Rokkor 58/1.2 and sell the rest. I hate getting bogged down with too many options, myself.

for those with the zeiss 85 1.4, do you find it redundant with the 100 2/2.8.

I'd definitely keep the 100-300 too.

Thank you all for your input. I will start by selling:

Olympus
35-70/3.6
Macrokit: 80/4 + 135/4.5+65-116 tube+extention tubes+variable extender

Voigtländer
Linhof Selected APO-Lanthar 105/4.5

Minolta
Auto Bellows III - Great tilt/shift bellows.

Still undecided about the OM 18/3.5 and the Rokkor 58/1.2.

Any input on current market value would be great.

I have loads of great gear that just sits unused and I should pass them on to someone who will actually use them.
