Upload & Sell: Off
Woah fellas. I'm not skipping out on this, I just got kind of busy.
I appreciate the idea of appraisal. I might just do it. The 100mm particularly has a kind of cult status with Minolta folks. A lot of Rokkor gear has held its value pretty well. Especially the faster stuff (58mm f/1.2s usually go for $400-600 in good condition).
I was able to find a 100mm f/2 that sold for a BIN price of $875 (this was when I first got it back in March). It was for the earlier, non-MC version in kind of rough shape. The thing has been sitting on my shelf since then and now that sale is no longer in Ebay's "completed listing" data. Obviously that could've been a fluke sale.
Also, the Minolta Maxxxum 100mm f/2 usually sells for $1000-1300. Obviously apples and oranges (MF/AF, age, mount, compatibility), but those aren't nearly as rare.
I'm seriously debating paying one of those sites like TeraPeak or HammerTap to get the 90-180 day historical data. I just found out that's why ebay only shows 15 days. They sell the data to these other companies.
