Bad case of LBA

OK,
Just made the big move, hope it wasn't a mistake. I just broke down and ordered the DA* 16-50 f/2.8 and the DA* 50-135 f/2.8. Hope I get a good copy of both. I'll probably have some glass for sale shortly, I hope

Way to go. Look on them as investments.

You're not alone. I just ordered the DA12-24 and DA*50-135 to complete my zoom set; they'll both be here tomorrow courtesy of my favorite brown truck.

LBA is a long, painfull, expensive road. Spoken by someone that has experienced an extremely bad case of LBA to get to this point. Ugh!!

The bad thing is that I use my DA 18-250mm 90% of the time!! Really love that glass.

Rookies.




Seriously, though, you can stop after those two - they spoil you pretty good.

I don't think that any of this LBA stuff really exists. Let's see, in the last 3 1/2 weeks I have only aquired a DA* 16-50 f2.8 and a DA* 50-135 f2.8 and a K20D and 4 B+W filters for the two lenses and tamrac bag. Nope, no LBA here. I can stop any time I want. Really I can.

You've got it bad!! I at least waited a week after getting my K20D before buying anything else.
