Greetings from Norway.

After spending too much time at the biggest "what should I buy" forum in Norway I desided to move to this great forum. Finally, no one is asking if they should buy the D40 or the 400D.

My first SLR was a Cosina, I think it was the CT1 Super. Never got the hang of it, so I traded it in for a P&S APS film camera. This happend in 1994-1997.

In 2001 I bought a EOS 300V when I was on vacation in Tenerife. Only used it while I was there. Sold it short time after.

I did own some low budget digital p&s before dSLR, nothing serious interest in photography.

In Feb./March two of my cousins bought a Canon 400D and I suddenly wanted a dSLR. But not Canon. From the start I wanted Pentax, but I wasn't sure if the excitement would last that long and thought about buying Samsung GX-1. I'm known too get new hobbies, use alot of money and grow tired of it and sell everything cheap

After much consideration I bought a used K10D with a Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8. Bought a FA 35mm f/2.0 from HK and a battery grip, DA 16-45mm f/4.0 and AF-540 flash from prodigital2000 in Canada.

A few month's after this I got the LBA. And only Prime's.... I sold the Sigma and bought FA 50mm f/1.4 and DA 70mm f/2.4 from HK. I bought a used K10D and batterygrip from the US. Sold my Pentax 16-45mm and the new battery grip. Then bought a FA 28mm f/2.8 from Pentax Norway.
Oh.. Jes... this LBA thing are serious stuff. Rehab soon?

Today I bought DA 21mm f/3.2, DA 40mm f/2.8 and a second AF-540 flash from prodigital2000 And selling the only batterygrip I have left. Who needs the grip when you only have small prime's? It looks stupid.

Now I'm done for this year, I hope. A lot of buying and selling. Now I must take alot of pictures to defend my LBA (bad) habits.

Are there anyone out there with LBA? Let's start LBA Anonymous

Hi and welcome NorthPentax, so you also caught the bug. There actually is a social group for LBA anonymous in this forum.
