When is too much, too much?

I started shooting film and buying bodies...one thing leading to another I have now 6 bodies by order or purchase:
1)MZ-5n like new perfect for transitioning from digital to film
2)K2 Black - I like it and sent it for CLA
3)MX Black - it looks so good in black that I also sent it to CLA
4)MX chrome - while the two above are gone I purchased that one on the forum on an impulse - still in transit
5 and 6)LX - again purchased on the forum - I was getting one and while chatting on the phone with the seller it occurred to me that I would save on shipping and have a backup so purchased also the second body that was on sale - I am very rational

Now should I sell the MZ-5n and the chrome MX to keep the numbers down and only black bodies and pay for the CLA on at least one of the LX or should I just install a small shelve.
BTW one of my colleague at work also wants to sell his (working) Super Program and a couple of zoom and flash. I am not interested at all and I have drown the line to stick with what I have already so I might put this on sale in the forum once I get an idea of the price.

And all that to find a nice camera for my FA Limited !!!!!!

Cheers,


Luc

When it comes to photo equipment...too much...is just about right.

Child, repent you of this sinfulness. Unburden yourself of this devilish affliction. Turn over these evil cameras unto me.

*doing really bad Grace Jones*

Too much... is nevah enough!

(Sooner or later I *will* be kind of interested in a nice black MX/K2/KX/LX, probably doesn't much matter which, so, hang onto em. ...whenever I think I have too much camera stuff, I just consider it 'things in my care I haven't found homes for yet.'

Well, I wish I could afford a chrome LX (2000), 'cause I really love chrome camera bodies

In the meantime you can always get the black LX on the forum. All my FA are black and I have seen a photo of a black LX with a black FA31 and my eyes started watering.....

Yeah, right. Better yet, just get another set of black FA limiteds, so I'd have both

If only I had the money ...

Your camera shelf is looking a little like mine, though with a bit better gear! The worst part is that I am still wanting to get a KX...

That would be the prudent way to go.
