I have a Schneider MC Symmar-S 150mm lens. It's a great lens; sharp, easy to tote about the landscape...I love it, but I recently picked up a 180mm and the focal length suits me better (I'm not a big fan of cropping down), so I want to sell the 150.
That said, the lens is in the early stages of "Scneideritis." There are maybe 8 randomly spaced bubbles where the front element sits in the barrel. This condition obvoiusly has no affect on the images it produces, but there seems to be a perception that the lens is "defective" as a result of the Schneideritis by prospective buyers.
Enter Schneider Optics...For a not so paltry sum of $150 (considering the monetary value of this lens), the fine people at Schndeider are willing to restore it to its original beauty.
So, my question...Is it worth the price to "fix" what is essentially a cosmetic imperfection for the sake of fetching a better resale price?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts and perspective.
