I think I have five 50mm primes and at least six zooms that include 50mm.

I have one 50mm that is broken that came as part of a package, does that count as well.

No wait there are more in the cupboard, I don't know how many I have.

Not enough !

There were later references to it also as Lens Buyers' Anonymous which is an organization to treat LBA (the affliction). Early references mentioned owning at least five lenses (for either the M42 or K mount) that covered 50mm to automatically qualify for membership.
I guess I have then been officially cured since I just gave my son my Series 1 35-85 f2.8 to use on his K100...meaning I now only have four lenses covering the critical 50mm point.¬* Whew!¬*¬* LBA sounds like it could be a serious addiction.¬* Guess it's also good that I gave him my Vivitar 28-200 and¬*my 50mm f2.0 earlier.¬* Wait....with his 18-55 kit lens, that means he's getting close to catching this disease..........
Hi TS,

Hmmmm! You have four and you're "cured" -- your son has four -- and he's getting "close".

Well, I guess. . . if that works for you. . .:-)

Now if you count the range of 16 - 17 - 18mm then I am going on to nearly 4 lens (counting a soon to be acquisition).
Hi IO,

Right! -- immune:-):lol::-):? -- that's just showing a resistance to one of the most common strains -- LBA Normalis. When you start counting lenses that you don't even have yet -- it's a no-brainer case. . .:-)

Hi Phil,

Now that's what I like to see -- someone who's come to grips with the situation -- now repeat after me. . .

"Hi, I'm (your name), and I've got LBA. . ."

Oh yeah -- broken ones count -- especially if you're keeping it for no good reason -- think about it. . .:-)

Like me and the Kiron 80-200 lens with oil on the aperture bladesI still have? At least I gave away the broken F70-210 (though that broke my heart).

I gave away 8 and received as a gift 2 and sold 8, but I have 3 Aluminum cases full...3 or 4 on the desk top and 4 more on the dinning room table and 3 waiting to be put back together..I can't remember buying any of these...I have according to the wife LBA Terminalis...at lest she says she will kill me if I get any more right now so I guesss that would end up as LBA terminalis any way! When Eddy asked what our lens kit looked like my mind went blank and except for the Bigma I couldn't remember what lens I have!!!!!

Brian is goldwing85 and I didn't "give" away the lenses, we traded some items.

actually, after reading this thread i'd say i'm doing ok. i only have 2 lens that cover 50mm, the kit and the FA and only 2 that are close. a 70-210 and a 80-200that will be gone as soon as i decide to sell it. the other doubles i have is the M200/4 and the viv200/3.5. i'll be selling the viv soon.. other double i have is the tammy300/2.8 and the tak300/4 and for obvious reasons i'll keep both of them..
