The last lens that I bought was about a year ago and it was the sigma 18-50mm ex dc f/2.8. I had been LBA free for about a year until just recently.

I recently acquired a series of old Pentax mount lens from a lady.
-Tamron 90mm SP f/2.5 manual lens
-Tamron 60-300mm SP manual lens
-Pentax SMC-M 50mm f/2 manual lens

It did not stop there. On Wednesday I also got another lens. I finally got the Pentax FA 28mm f/2.8 lens. I've been wanting this lens for about 2 years now and got a really good deal on it. Used, but in mint conditions.

Here is my Pentax Army

Some really nice glass, there. I'm being good now, after having given in to LBA this summer. No more lenses for me for a while. I mean, you can only use one lens at a time, right? How many do you need, after all?

Yea, but it is more fun with more lens.:lol:

You are right, there are only a few lens that I will use. In fact, there are lens that I don't even keep in my bag, I keep them locked up.

I just "accidentally" bought another lens right now... A Pentax SMC-M 50mm f/1.4
I said accidentally because I didn't really need that lens. It came on the K1000 body that I will need for school next semester.

OK no more lens for me, I have enough.

I just need more bodies now...:lol:

When has "need" ever had anything to do with buying lenses? There's at least three lenses that I really want, of which I'll probably only buy one. I spend half my time justifying to myself why I don't want to buy the second two. It's OK to keep the other lenses locked up, as long as you use them occasionally.

Nobody ever has enough lenses. Those that say they have enough will eventually buy more so the truth lies in the fact of ongoing purchases. I have it....I can't get rid of it....so I am proud of the addiction.
