2011 was the Year of Keeping Only What I Use.

I sold all my Tamron MF (11 pieces), Takumar 500/4.5 that I'd used just once. Viv 105/2.5, used twice is on reserve.

After 30 years of body lust I bought an LX.

That's my 2012 New Year's resolution.

We'll see how it goes over the next couple of weeks as I purge a couple dozen lenses from three different systems

That's where I landed too.
K-5 with
DA15
FA50 1.7 (and I'm thinking I don't use this enough)
F28 2.8 (if this was not so compact and sharp it would be gone too)
Tamron 28-75mm 2.8
DA 55-300mm

The rest is gone including my K10D which I ** loved. **

I acquired an Olympus E-PL3 and E-PL2 with 14-42mm, 9-18mm, and 40-140mm. next up is a Panny 20mm f/1.7

woof!

Didnt acquire as much this year vs last. good deals on the used lenses too.

Bought
Jupiter 9
helios 44 (k mount)
31mm ltd
15mm ltd

barely held off on a k5, but kinda want to wait and see whats about to happen with the new year and whatnot.

Keep looking to sell things, but if its not heavily used, when I do use it I like it so much that I couldnt bring myself to sell it off (eg. my sigma 10-20/3.5 even with a 15 ltd... ) Gotta look at it harder though, I have 2 fast 50mm lenses and realistically dont need both but they are pretty fun in slightly different ways.

Mine's easy, greyser's list would have me disowned by my wife.
I bought my first DSLR in 2011, the K5.
18-55 WR
SMC-A 50/1.7
SMC-A 70-210/4.0
Tamron/Quantaray 70-300
Tokina 28-70/2.8-4.3

I literally (Dec 31st, 2011) just bought the DA 18-135 to replace the kit lens. The kit lens 18-55 will either be sold off, or kept if it looks like we may be picking up a second body, TBD right now.

I'll be buying the Tamron 28-75/2.8 as the next lens, unless someone manages to put out a moderately priced 17-70 2.8.
From there, "things get complicated"/unknown. Mostly flip-flopping between the DA* 60-250/4.0 or a Tamron or Sigma 70-200/2.8, with a possible "detour" into a used 55-300 along the way, and possibly a few primes in K or KA mount - 28/35/55/100, and maybe an FA50.
