My history of LBA

I finally managed to acguire my first FA limited. And not only one but two of them.

I sold F 50/1.7, FA 35/2, DA 17-70 and one guitar to buy FA 31 & 43 limiteds and DA 20-40 limited.

Due the big change in my lenses I started to think what my lens history has been since I bought a K200D.

So I went though many images, emails, PMs here and other forums. Ebay receips etc. to know how bad my
LBA has been.

Here is it:

What I learnt is limiteds are conquering more and more space in my camera bag F-series is strong too.

Do you know your history of LBA ?

Shouldn't be too hard to find out as I don't sell lenses... But I can draw the same conclusion; the Limiteds are taking up more space! Three DAs so far, and one FA in the mail.

Interesting. The only lens you maybe shouldn't have sold is the F135/2.8 (assuming you had a good copy). I came close to selling mine (FA version) after getting the DA*50-135, but now, because of the small size and AF speed, it's one of the more important lenses in my kit.

Wow! That's impressive! Is this like the first step for a LBA Anonymous group? I'd be sort of embarrassed to chart all the lenses I tried to gobble up from the used market!

I have every lens I have ever bought except for two I gave to a close friend, so all I have to do is look at the shelf to see my LBA.
