Oh Ho!! An entire new category for a CBA attack!

Olympus RD?
Canon QL17 G-III (or who needs a battery check button - New QL17)?
Yashica Electro 35?
Yashica 35GX?
Rollei 35s?
Olympus XA?

[EDIT] OMG - there must be 500 entries under Rangefinder on CameraQuest!!
I have already been through the dedicated lens rangefinder thing and ended up with an Argus C-4 and Fuji Five-One-Nine. I figured it would help keep lba for a minimum. Although there is a modified C-4 and the C-44 that have interchangeable lenses.

if you are consistently watching the marketplace, craigslist and eBay for items from early morning (1am) til midnight (12am) everyday, then you got the LBA syndrome.

Forgot I have my father's C4 (with an obscured rangefinder). The standard lens is removeable, though, so I guess I'm in trouble.

When you are buying your fourth 50mm prime...
No no no, it's only LBA if they're all the same aperture or brand.

[/me fondles seven 50s and four 55s: three Pentax, four Meyer, a Zeiss, an Industar, a Chinon and a Porst; only two are the same.
/me watches eBay for a Cosina, a Mamiya, and two Rikenons.
/me is too broke to buy more now.
/me struggles with inner demons.
/me needs therapy?
/me notes that some at mflenses.com brag of many many more.
/me wonders how far down the Slipper Slope is the Edge.]

An expensive medical condition, which is seldom cured.

50 range primes are exempt from the LBA designation.

Some of us have been creating petitions (7,000 signatures so far) to have 135s removed from the category, so stay tuned.

That sounds like you have one of the Geiss versions of the C4.
