STOP MAKING ME WANT TO BUY SO MANY LENSES!

I need more money...or another job.
Let me guess, your bank account is zeroed and your cc are maxed out, your gf/wife is leaving you and the dog won't play with you even if you had a pork chop hanging around your neck . . . and there is 1 more lens . . .

I believe the LBA is an automatic spin off from being part of the Forums.
Maybe the time will come we will need LBAA ( Lens Buying Addiction Anon) to give help to those caught in the clutches of this dreadful psychosis.

Then there a lot worse things to suffer from, I guess.
And NO is not that hard to say surely.

Haven't you ever heard the phrase "no means no"? I guess in this case no means yes.

I very nearly bought a used lens today. But was foiled by someone else buying it before I could ask my wife.

(Note: I'm glad as I discovered I could buy it new with a 6-year warranty for $20 more, including shipping.)

Little laker, you are not helping! That first shot (flower) is sweet.

Though actually I have been off LBA for a year now. But if I did get a lens it might be the Tak 55/1.8.
You're complaining about? You can pick that up for 50 bucks or so.

THAT DOESN'T COUNT!!! HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS COUNT!!!

DA 15 has been calling my name lately, as is DA 12-24 and Sigma 10-20.

There is nothing u can do about LBA. It is not an illness/disease u can seek a doctor for. It is not an addiction (contrary to what people think) that u can go for rehab. It is a curse being handled down to you the moment u buy into DSLRs. So learn to live with the curse :-)

the madness only stops once the forum is reset back to zero and there are no posts nor any replies regarding inquiries.

but since I choose to post, here's a freebie for the haters.

A50/1.2 , get them while they're hot.

Hey no, you have it wrong.

With LBA every single lens counts. And we justify it by saying "ah, it's not that much". Then, when we have a collection of 10 nearly identical lenses, each of which cost very little, we sit back and wonder how it could have happened!
