I was gonna say, it'd be a banker to say Rio had more than 151

There's two other people with 2-3 lenses!! minority!

Hm. I wonder if you all know this french page here: compatibilite-en
I found that page too. It's handy. I've been going at it for about a week reading up on every worthy lens, and i'm only on 'M' Dang!

It's time to build a spreadsheet. For each lens: Make, model, type (prime, zoom, TC,
you mean you are supposed to count TCs as well, what about extension tubes, and is this by tube or by set?????.........

enlarger, etc), mount (M42, K0, T2, KM, KA, KAR, etc), focal length (FL range if zoom), max aperture, min aperture, aperture type (manual, M/A, preset, auto, etc), focus (manual, auto, none), near-focus distance, iris blades, front thread, weght, serial number, notes, origin, total cost (including shipping). I should have included purchase date, but what the hell, it's too late now. For those disposed of, I add fields for sales price and profit/loss.

NOTE: K0 (zero) is what I call K mounts with no aperture linkage, like lens-in-a-caps and some mirrors. T-mount is a subset of K0.
I was waiting for you to respond. You probably have the most lenses of any forum member. Although there is a second poster who has more than 150

Maye the poll is flawed, since I cant tell the two of you apart

I remember recently reading that PF member "DIGITALIS" indicated that he has a huge collection of 50mm lenses. (Over 150 for the one focal length) So with all the other lenses that he has I would guess he is the other member over 151 lenses and possibly number 1 overall.

C'mon Lowell, TCs contain lenses and tubes don't. I count fish-wide-tele adapters and Raynoxi, but not meniscus closeup optics. I count copy-process-xray lenses but not adapted magnifiers. Gotta have SOME standards here, eh?

At least one member here has more, maybe two do, and maybe some are more discreet.

The number of lenses one needs can be represented by this expression: N + 1

N = the number of lenses you currently own

Oh, I know when to shut up about certain things. That's why I don't mention all my [deleted] or [deleted] or [deleted] because... because it wouldn't be prudent. But I could talk about my comix collection, if you wish.

Some are still in denial of their LBA. They'll call their 100+ lenses "a few".

I won't classify TC's as lenses, but they do have glasses, and some of mine do have serial no, and tc with 'zoom' feature.
And so do the front add-on for tele or wide or close ups. They too have serial no.
These are in category not-stand-alone lenses.

I guess they don't know the exact number of their inventory.
Or they are unsure what to keep,
Or they are waiting more lenses to come,
Or some of them with fungus/not usable and might not categorize as lenses...

I consider only those things, which on their own can be attached to a camera to take a photo
