I'm downsizing to 4x5 from a B&J 5x7. My aching, aging back wants to sell the B& J, with its 210mm Ilex Focutar lens and assorted stuff. The question: What's the best way to do this? Classified/private sale in Shutterbug? Or sell it to a dea ler and take what it offers? I'm looking to use whatever money I get to buy a 90 mm wide-angle for my 4x5, so a trade is also an acceptable possibility. I think I'm looking for speed rather than best price.

So, colleagues, what would you advise?
