I have a whole bunch of lenses that are collecting dust for lack of use. Why did I buy them, probably because I read some review, or because some "expert" claimed: "This is the greatest thing since Swiss-cheese !" This activated my LBA and I knew I just had to have this lens. Am I remorseful ? HECK NO ! despite the lack of use, if I were to lose the lens, or it got stolen, I would probably purchase it all over again. Unlike others that sell or trade their equipment at the drop of a dime, I usually purchase For-Keeps. Honestly though, you only need about 3-4 lenses (a wide angle, a normal lens, a small telephoto and maybe a telephoto lens). There is no lens on the market right now that that is going to instantly improve your photography...

At some point in time we should have a thread where we post a photo of all our Pentax equipment. Then post a second photo of what we have used in the last year.

Point of order - with what do we take this proposed photograph ? As Pentaxifans, surely we do not permit inferior equipment to sully our homes ?

Of course, GAS and LBA has one vital social role to play - it prevents delicate equipment falling into the unworthy hands of those who may not cosset and cherish it the way we, as photographers, do - they may even abuse it (Horror of horrors !), then try to sell it on eBay as 'slightly used'.

As disciples of mirrored cameras (only vampires use mirrorless devices! ), surely the solution to use a mirror!

Thus, a Pentaxifan would to place a mirror in front of the collection so that one of their esteemed Pentax cameras can take a selfie with the collection.
