LBR

What does this stand for? I keep seeing it in posts talking ably lenses/squiring more lenses. It's driving me crazy that I don't know what it stands for!

Lens Be Ridiculous?

Your acronym is really more accurate, though.

LBA is a very dangerous infectious disease, fast spreads in active pentaxforum members.
It usually causes holes in patients' wallet/bank, needing of larger storage cabinet and irritated spouse.

LBR would be the eventual result of carrying out LBA to its ultimate extreme - as in Lens Buying Remorse, or Lens Buying Recovery.

If letters get switched around to RLB, then you would have a Recovering Lens Buyer.

The original definition was being so addicted to buying lenses that one owned five 50mm lenses.

I own at least one 50mm lens in five different lens mounts...

This is all not to be confused with LRB, the Little River Band, who most definitely are not Pentaxians.

Never met a lens I didn't like.
A good trick is getting the kids involved so you can justify purchases as gifts!

The term LBA originated on the Forum That Shall Not Be Named. And at one time there was a Lens Buyers Anonymous...
