I've been wanting to upgrade from my 1400 with the front element to a cylinder type HE lens, and finally have enough pennies in the bank to do so.

I figured I'd try to peddle the 1400/FE after I get the new one installed. I have no idea what it is worth or what I should ask for, what to expect, etc... There does not appear to be much of a market for used lenses either, so trying to find a comparable lens selling price point is somewhat difficult. I don't even remember what I paid for the thing when I bought it several years ago....

Does anyone know what these things are worth nowadays?

My random thoughts for a used lens?

$500 for a used uncorrected lens, maybe a bit less for some without optical coatings.
$1000 for a corrected prismatic lens (like yours)
$1500 for the higher end prismatic lenses (UH380/480, Panamorph 5000, etc)
$2000+ for a cylindrical lens, depending on quality and size

See what an anamorphoscopic lens can do, see movies the way they were meant to be seen

Thanks for the input. It makes it difficult to put a sale price on something if you have no idea what it's worth.... I spent a few hours looking for a comparative price point, but did not find much of anything.
