The *any and all* lens club

I am part of many different hobbies and therefor are a member of several forums. On just about all of them there is an area to show of your ever growing collection.

SO....This thread is for showing off *ALL* your lenses big and small, any brand!

The rules:

- This is for posting pictures of your lenses (extension tubes and TC's count), not camera bodies or other equipment (i.e. flashes).

- The picture must contain more than one lens (cant have a collection with just one lens )

- Please for the sake of us viewers, list the lenses shown

- Obviously you will need a lens to take the picture with (unless you have another camera body or P&S). Because of this, please specify the lens you took the picture with. (I suggest using your most un-impressive lens to take the picture. This thread is for showing off after all)



Thats about it!

Disclaimer:
- The pictures to follow will provoke LBA.... possibly severely. You have been warned :ugh:

- After posting, you *may* begin to understand that you do in fact have a problem, called LBA. Stepping out of denial is the first step

- Keyboard may become covered in drool

Here is my ever-expanding collection / hoard as it currently stands (apologies for the poor photo, I can’t find a big enough space to set them all out to photograph properly). These are just the usable lenses. The ones I have brought and stripped for parts are not shown.

This exercise has revealed to me that:
My LBA is worse than I though,
I have another previously undiagnosed condition – LHA (Lens Hoarding Addiction)
I really need to get rid of some of the duplicates,
I need more shelf space

The photo was taken with a Pentax Takumar A 28mm f2.8 which obviously is not shown ion the photo.

Now that is what I call an impressive collection! Holy SH*T!
And to think, I thought I was bad for buying three lenses back to back!

That is exactly what Im looking for, thanks for the contribution MattGunn

No problem.
About 15 months ago just before I brought a Samgung GX20 with the kit lens and the 50-200mm I had 4 M42 lenses to go with my Zenit EM and 3 K mount lenses to go with my Pentax ME. Everything else has been aquired since then. A good proportion of them have been obtained since I found this wonderfull forum where LBA is encouraged ( like going to an AA meeting and being given a pint at the door) so I can blame / thank all of you for much of this collection.

If I can collect most of this in just over a year then surely there will be others out there who can make this look like good start...

I'm actually suprised at the number of mirrors that have shown up so far. Not a bad start. If I get time, I'll post my small collection. After seeing these collections, I've got nothing. lol
