There is no cure for LBA, so leave it at that!

The road to hell is paved with Pentax * lenses. (Mostly 600mm ones I'll bet.)

An uncontrollable compulsion to purchase every lens rated higher than 4.5 in the Pentax and Third-Party Lens databases.

I just happen to have the disease (LBA) but I don't have the funds to totally cure it!

Advanced stages have been known to lead to CBA.

Actually, there is a temporary remedy and a permanent cure but the latter leads to death.

If you don't know, it's for the best. If you do know, it's already too late.

What are you talking about, I've never had LBA. I do however have CBA, and a bad case of it.
In the last 6 weeks or so I've bought 6 cameras or something like that. I've lost count

I never said you had to have LBA to get CBA just that it leads to it. Studies also show that advanced stages of CBA lead to LBA so watch out.

Just ask yourself these questions: "Have I ever thought that I should cut back on buying lenses?", "Have I ever gotten angry at anyone else for suggesting that I should cut back on buying lenses?", "Have I ever felt guilty for buying lenses?", and "Do I scan e bay's pentax listings first thing every morning to find the latest deal?"

If you answered two of these questions in the affirmative, you may have a problem...

Your standards are way too high:

I jump on everything above 3.
