No doubt he has good taste in Pentax lenses.....he must also have a healthy bankroll. I envy him, his collection of lenses.

Magnifique !

I'll hazard a guess if I get to keep the lenses if I'm closest.

Estimated value: somewhere between my M 50/1.7 (purchased for $14.99) and our house (priceless!).

Wow, it's a fantastic set of gear, to be sure. I wonder how he decides which lens to use, or does he pack several at a time? I'd be happy with only one of the higher-end copies. On the other hand, getting one might only lead to hyper-LBA.

He'll decide the same way we all do with our lens choices, but for him it's more like a workout when he's loading up the bigger glass.
