Is LBA Curable?

I have gone a little berserk, at least thats what the missus is tellng me. This week I've bought a
K110D,
F 70-210,
FA 28-200,
DA 18-55,
SMC M 28 F2.8,
2- SMC M 50mm f2,
ME Super,
Program Plus,
2-Flashes
and a couple cases.
In the last few weeks I've purchased
Makinon 28-80,
Takumar 28mm f2.8,
ME Super,
SMC M 200mm f4,
SMC A 50mm 1.7,
and another SMC M 50mm f2.

Out of pocket its less than $350, finding stuff at thrift shops. I'm hoping to resell some of them for a little profit to purchase a 50mm f1.2 and a DA 18-250mm.

When I first started shopping I wanted to try them all out. Only buying what I thought I needed, boy was I wrong! It seems like I NEEDED to TRY EVERYTHING! I can't wait to find some limiteds!!!

Its been spectacular! The K110D came with 2 lenses F 70-210, DA 18-55 a flash and a case... I may have overpaid... is $100 too much?

That is not even bargain, it's almost a robbery. I could pay $100 for F 70-210 only.

The complete lack of used photography equipment here is most dismal. Man I would love a visit to a big N. American city.

I thought I had found the cure, intensify the disease...
Get lenses, try them out, keep the better ones (until better come round) and sell the rest to finance more lenses.

I ran into the same problem as you. Buying is easy, selling not so much...

But minimizing packages is the best way to avoid problems, that is ... if you than can prevent the misses from finding them out :P

Curable? Certainly. I've been cured many times!

Although sadly, I think your case is too serious and is beyond help. I'm jealous. :-)

I'm slowly working towards that! I love the 28mm I got today! This is the first pic I took with it... JPEG and no editing...

it's cureable alright. but just like the common cold, it mutates into a new strain and you go back full circles again.
