I think if I DID have all my gear stolen, and got the money to replace it, I would simplify a great deal... maybe 15,35,43 and 70 limiteds on a K7 or K-X... but perhaps I am only kidding myself.

I certainly havent spent that much. less than 5,000 bucks. I own a lot of really impressive Takumar glass but even the 6 new in box takumars that I own dont equal the price of just two DA*'s or limiteds. I have three digital bodies but the only one I bought at a really "high" price was the k-m. I havent attempted to add it all up, but I would imagine it would be somewhere in the 3000-3500 range.

im guessing that is been less than 5000 but with the cost of glass going up i would guess that I may be over that number eventually, the only thing bought new are the K100D and the Fisheye everything else was bought used

I'm glad my wife doesn't ask how much I spend on my hobbies.

Unfortunately, when you get involved with DA* and FA Ltd lenses, the bill climbs higher and faster than a Cessna 210.
This is kind of what I was thinking. The quote in the title should actually be, Wife: "OMG, you have spent HOW much? Inconceivable."

everytime I get a lens in the mail, my girlfriend (before I even get the package open) gives me the same line: what is that, another lens? then she just shakes her head in complete confusion. I just grin like a little kid.

Most stuff is more capable than I

If something comes along that looks cool or I want to try it...I get it. It's funny though...I don't labor over purchases, hoping to find the cheapest price. Amazon/B&H/Adorama/ebay/craigslist/thrift stores...searching is pretty quick, actually.

Mate, that Honda Racing strap is priceless!...

Are we talking Zimbabwian dollars here?
In that case, I might have checked the wrong box

Is anyone? I have another 10 grand in lenses I still need. Just can't justify that to the better half.

you're an embarrassment to this community. go out and do something productive. like shooting some pictures of wallabies or dingos or crocs for a change.

btw, you're not into WOW, are you?

Though proudly, all my lens investment has been wise and I have made profit. Recently I am stocking olympus four thirds prof series lenses. Hehe. Good stuff.

wallabies are pretty much laid to rest by the road side these days. Not really necrophilliac.
