A few years back I stood at a specialty photo shop counter with the owner and had the same conversation, going from film to digital. I think you should weigh the personal value of your FM2, whether still being used or not, against the dollars it would bring toward the Elmarit 24mm. Though the market for film bodies is depressed, your AI-S lenses could probably still bring good money, since they could be compatibly mated to a number of DSLRs. Some of the filters are probably more limited in saleability, since so much can now be done through post processing. (I see mostly use of split field ND and polarizers on the Web lately.) If I were trying to sell an FM2 body I'd do it in a place like Photo.net classifieds where people who value these high quality film bodies would shop. Trading it would hit the price pretty hard.
