I think I have 25 lenses. But I'm not 100% sure. I may be miscounting my 50mm or 135mm lenses, which are my two most common focal lengths.

A couple of weeks ago I posted this: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/10-pentax-slr-lens-discussion/248318-buyi...ng-lenses.html

It put me at 27 lenses bought and sold since October 2012.

Since that post I've added 3 more lenses!

LBA! LBA!

I try to keep my number below 10. If buying something new, one of the old ones needs to go.
I like that. I want to do that.

At least my lenses take up less room than my husband's cars...

I've only got 6 with one up for sale. Guess I'm the oddball on the forum.

I was up to 15 at one point but now I have 11 - 8 Penttax, 3 Minolta. Only one (DA 18-55) is not FF compatible (well it is on part of the range, I guess...).
Not one of them is expensive or well regarded... but they still get me good results, considering my low level of experience

I have 7 lenses. 4 are Excellent. The other 3 will most likely be sold off. I am going to add at least one more lens before I call it quits. Ok Maybe just one more after that but I promise that's it

With me it's like the bible: 5 loaves and 2 fish. Err, I mean zooms and primes.

I'm actually trying to downsize, because less could be more. Right now I have both the 16-50 and 17-70. Eventually one will probably go, and the 16-50 is a more recent addition, but I just can't part with the 17-70 yet.

He posted in his guestbook in October that he can no longer see well enough to use a camera. It also makes using a computer difficult so he won't be posting anymore

What a shame. And no options to improve it?

For the computer, there are special whole screen magnifiers.

Here is exactly what he said...

Hi folks - Thanks for thinking of me. No, I'm not doing great, but please, no messages of sympathy. I'm just wearing out. I can't really see well enough to pursue photography anymore, and computer work is hard too. I just can't be active here anymore. It's been fun. Bye.
