I've been cured (of the other brand anyway).
My brother gave me a Canon XT.
It only came with the kit lens 18-55mm (not even IS)..hehe
When I look at how much the lenses for it are priced specially of the IS type, I just stop thinking about them..hehe.
No manual lenses either so you are forced to the EF or EF-S lens..hehe.
I've got to say, I am never buying any lens on that thing except what it came with!
CURED!
..let's not just talk about my K100D super as the LBA on that can never get cured!

You do realize that with a cheap adapter you can use ALL your K-mount glass on it, plus being able to use pretty much every other legacy SLR mount aside from Canon FD (ironic, eh?)?

I feel as much LBA related to the EF mount as I do towards the K-mount.

I have yet to find a definitive cure, though I can vouch that unemployment helps...
Not if you have savings and aren't scared of the wife
