too many lenses?

I can't check the exact count (MANY!) right now, but I know that most of my zooms are Pentax, and most primes aren't. Most AF lenses are Pentax, most manual focus lenses aren't, even though I have a nice batch of old Taks etc. That's just how the eBay lens-buying-spree derby worked out.

Unless I have no other option, I usually like to stick with the manufacturer branded lenses because the build quality tends to be much better. I found that I used to start with the most affordable lenses and then slowly work my way up to the "better" lenses, however I realized I lost quite a bit of money that way. Now I just buy whats the best available lens for my needs, I may kick myself for a bit but usually am much happier in the end.
