You don't have LBA until you own five 50mm lenses.
Ok I sold one, so I only have 4 now... yay, no LBA here

You aren't in real trouble until you've bought enough from shopgoodwill.com to know how long it will take the goodwill you bought from to ship the lens and how they are going to ship it. (Tacoma GW will take a week after you pay to ship and it takes another week for UPS to drop it off).
Alright, my wife will be happy to know that I do NOT have LBA

I do check Craigslist and Ebay a few times a day though. So I won't kid myself... LBA is here, thankfully I don't have the funds to act on it.

My advice would be to just keep decreasing the font size...you could make that one page list stretch...

Plus, if your font is small enough, you can easily use 3 columns on your page

There is no reason to accumulate a pile of lenses (or bodies), I have found it only confuses you and gets you to the point where you are convinced you need different equipment than you have to get a good shot, rather than getting good with what you have.
Nope don't have that problem! I know the cause of all my crappy shots, ME!

Good idea . Now for column 2. By the way the one I was drooling over is on the camera . While I was waiting to pull the trigger on it I found another lens I needed. So I ended up getting a Zoom and the Tammy

Well, in my case, my Paypal account doesn't have any money in it! And if it draws from the bank, the wife will see it

As for having several 50s - no benefits, really. I've sold one and I gave one away... still have 4. Some I got when I purchased other stuff and they just came in the package, and a couple I got because I didn't have a 1.7 (later I got another, which I then sold, and an old ugly unloved one, which I kept and love), or a 1.4.

In all honesty, 1 is really all one needs. If all I had was my Sears 50 1.7 or my SMC M 50 1.7 I'd be alright.

But this isn't about being logical, so I crave a 50 1.2... and it seems their prices are coming down a bit recently.

I used to travel a lot to USA from 2009 to 2011, and I had my dad's old K1000, that I love. In that time, a friend told me that Pentax K-r was the best entry level DSLR in the market.
