Thanks for my now rampant LBA problem everyone!

Just wanted to thank the awesome people on this forum who have helped my transition to a Pentax user.
Since I have found this site, I have used the reviews and forums section to learn more about manual lenses and getting even more excited about Photography than I previously thought possible.
Below are a few of my purchases as well as a few of my pictures taken in the past few months.
Now off to the review section where I plan to add my 2 cents to the database.

Doesn't seem that bad. You haven't even started buying Takumars yet.

Progress of the Disease:

1. Buy lenses until you are out of money and credit.
2. Stop buying lenses.

3. Ignore the petition for divorce that the lawyer just served you with.

That looks like the M 28/2.8, M 50/2, M 50/1.7, K 55/1.8 and M 100/3.5. Never tried the 50/2, but the others are nice indeed.

Problem is, the douchebag employers'll keep paying you every month, and the lenses will keep on coming.

That's called living paycheck to paycheck. It is, after all, Lens Buying Addiction.

M 100/3.5? There was a 135/3.5 and a 150/3.5 but no 100/3.5

I don't know what @Silkman is worried about. None of those lenses is particularly expensive and none is a Takumar

I don't NEED any of these things. If someone came into my dining room this minute and offered me a price for the entire lot on the table, and I accepted, tomorrow my life would be just fine.

Want is another matter entirely.

Actually I should be receiving my first Takumar soon. The 85mm 1.9.
I've heard it's pretty spectacular.
Also got a k50mm 1.4 coming soon too in K mount.
Any others that you guys recommend?
