mission accomplished

Ok, so today I finaly completed my line up.
for now I think it's more than satisfactory.
Wide end:
Sigma EX DG 10-20/4-5.6
Sigma 24/2.8 Super wide II AF
this covers me from super wide to moderate wide. One zoom, one fastish prime.

Normal lenses:
FA31ltd, DA40ltd
Two excellent lenses, ultimate quality (built, IQ, SMC and all) one super portable

Tamron 70-200/2.8 (just bought it, so far so good)
one excellent low light performer, with superb IQ, one multifunctional fast zoom.

Super tele
SMC400/5.6 decent lens, but the age is showing on the digital.
WILL BE FOR SALE NOW (anybody interested PM me, it'll to as marketplace listing soon too) and later to be replaced by 1.5 and 2x TCs for the Tammy.

Sigma 105/2.8 EX DG
it doesn't get much better in macro lenses of this focal lenght

back up
Tamron 70-300
two very decent budget lenses

so all in all main kit is 2wide, 2 normal, 2 tele and 1 macro. 2 zooms, and 5 primes,.
it took me and my wife 2&1/2 years to build it (along with 2 flashes, 3 bodies, grip).
after all (5 wrong steps with lens purchasing) I have to say I'm pleased. Now, what the hell do I care, the prices can go up. I have pretty much all I want, and for sure all I need, even more I'd say.
I can go and sleep with peace of mind, not having to think of what page to check for what lens etc. Now it's really time to enjoy them all

I just thought I let you know. Now I'm starting my personal LBA moratorium. Let's see how long it'll last. Minimum target 6 months, idealy 12. I hope I will manage.
But flashes and bodies, and other accesorries don't count right

I agree on the 300 but 60-250 doesn't move me at all, especially with price tag of 1.1k.
As for the 300, who knows, maybe in those 12 months I'll save enough for it to get it even after price rises

Your lens collection will never be complete.
LBA might be dormant for a short time.
