How Ironic that march be my inaugural introduction to LBA… In the last week I’ve picked up: A 70-210 f4 / A 35-105 F3.5 / A 50mm 1.7 and a Tokina 2x converter...
Thank God I dont mind manual focus or else I would really be in trouble.

Well, you picked some GREAT lenses to LBA! I have the A70-210/F4 and A50/1.7. The 70-210 is easily my favorite lens. I've been wanting to pick up a A35-105, but haven't been able to find one in my price range. I did luck up earlier today and managed to nab a A35-135 for 40 bucks.

I blame all of you.

Purchased within the last 3 days:

DA 16-45 (convenient) - bought it with the K20d
DA* 50-135 (sharp and well behaved) - picked it up the next day after having messed with it in the store
FA 77 ltd (sublime genius) - bought today once I sold my track car

Ordering a FA 33 ltd next. Then have to sort my macro problem. I don't think the zooms are going to see much use...

I did not have LBA. I do not have LBA, but I succumbed to TCA and ponied up for a 1.7X AF Tele Converter in the photographer marketplace. It's only a converter, so it isn't a lens, right?

You people are ruining me!

I just might go to Adorama tomorrow and buy a 50mm manual focus lens.
Lenses

That 85mm f2.0 (second from bottom) is very tempting, but it's a little more than I want to spend.

What would you guys & gals recommend - an A or an M lens?

I have spent a bit of cash at the moment ... and looks like I am about to spend more.

LBA and FBA by the looks of it.
And if i can find one ... it may just be TBA as well.

I think i need a larger camera bag now.

It never ends.

March is LBA awareness month

C'mon people,

It is common knowledge that you can't have LBA unless you own five 50mm lenses

Fortunately I only have four
