Every now and then i fall apart... My LBA Heart Break

Delete this thread if it doesn't apply please delete it...

So I've been lusting.... wanting the Viv S1 105, Kiron 105, Viv 100, Lester 105... Ever since i first laid eyes on it's pictures. And through the last few months I've just missed it many times...

Countless times on the forums... Recently one for an amazing deal.. and then total when I thought I had it in site on ebay and a guy who must have used a sniping program beats me right as i'm refreshing for the last 20 seconds of the auction.... Soon they'll probably be rare enough that it's totally priced out of my budget as I need other lenses before just getting a dedicated macro..

Whyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This song is a tribute to my lens that i didn't win in the auction today... It is my Elanor (if you guys ever watch Gone in 60 seconds)

Turnaround, every now and then I get a
little bit lonely and you're never coming around
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit nervous that the best of all the years have gone by
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit terrified and then I see the look in your eyes
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart

Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit restless and I dream of something wild
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit helpless and I'm lying like a child in your arms
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit angry and I know I've got to get out and cry
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit terrified but then I see the look in your eyes
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you'll only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
Cause we'll never be wrong together
We can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

Turnaround bright eyes
Turnaround bright eyes
Turnaround, every now and then I know
you'll never be the boy you always you wanted to be
Turnaround, every now and then I know
you'll always be the only boy who wanted me the way that I am
Turnaround, every now and then I know
there's no one in the universe as magical and wonderous as you
Turnaround, every now and then I know
there's nothing any better and there's nothing I just wouldn't do
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you'll only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
Cause we'll never be wrong together
We can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

LOL !

You can try the Vivitar 100/3.5 Macro . Not bad at all . Kim got one for 25 bucks ! Make sure you get the adapter with it .

Post a WTB and keep refresh it. Somebody will eventually contact you . It's a great ( or BAD ) time for LBA now . With all the new lenses option , somebody will sell off to fund new LBA !

WOW!!! $175 for that lens... it's def worth every penny, if not more IMO. It seems that some other K-mount VIV S1 items are going for big bucks, I think I will be selling some items after all. [But not the 105mm Macro]

Okami, if I ever decide to sell one of my S1 Viv 105 2.5's, I'll PM you before it goes on the marketplace or eekbay to give you first dibs! (the song got to me.)

You can see why this was branded and sold by Lester Dine as a dental lens

Okami and I have a history going when it comes to lenses, but I am glad you stepped up because I would be hard pressed to let mine go.
