How many lenses do you have?

I have 21 lenses.

So I started doing my annual year end purge and decided to count up how many lenses I have on my shelves. So after a year I have purchased over 39 lenses in 1 year! I still have 21 of them. I think I'm over my LBA as I think I'd like to sell some more of my lenses but I've enjoyed shooting with all of them to date.

How many do all of you have and do you think I'm crazy to have as many lenses as I do

I have that many 50mm lenses, so no you're not crazy. Unless I am

I have around 8 lenses in K-mount, a couple more in m42 and m39, and two in Yashica mount (on a Yashica AF SLR). I try to get by with as few as possible The lack of cash is what keeps me in check, but its not easy

Only 7. Although if my friends heard me saying 'only' they'd call me crazy .

Same here plus my wife .

I guess compared to richardwong, boriscleto and skid2964 I can say "only" eight. I'm still negotiating for a macro...and a wide angle prime...and a Samyang 85 1.4...etc...darn LBA. Glad my wife keeps me in line

At this moment I 'have' one '50 for each iteration of the Pentax 35mm mounts.

Beyond that I'm not telling.

Whew! I only have 9!

Working on it though. There's at least 3 lenses that are on my "WTB" list. Plus anything on eBay that catches my eye.

Too many to justify buying any more yet not enough to quell my lustful desires.

I have 23 that I'll be keeping. I'll be putting my FA 50 1.4 (I have F series version) and 28,35, and 135 Taks on the market after I take some product shots since I have the K series versions In those focal lengths.
