    In the last few years I've been forced by necessity to sell:

    90mm Schneider Super Angulon
    14" Goerz Trigor
    Turner Reich Triple Convertible
    Calumet 4x5
    Kodak 5x7

    I've come perilously close to having to sell my Wista 45Sp. It's safe for the moment, but not out of the woods yet.
    I'm certainly not a collector and don't consider myself to have GAS, but I wouldn't have sold any one of these if I didn't need to. Fortunately
    between 3 cameras I still have 35, 6x7, 4x5, 5x7 and 8x10 covered.

    I am in the process of un-hoarding, but at the rate I'm going, it's going to take about 10-20 years to complete the process.

    i wonder if painters have this problem with brushes ?

    yes. and then some of us get the camera desease and we have it in both mediums. Brushes, fortunately, wear out more quickly than cameras, and you need a number of them to do your work, and they take up less space, and they don't mind humidity, and, and...

    I think we are all individual in how we use our tools, how many tools we feel we need. To some, having the choice of many lenses can seem empowering, and to others it can seem detrimental.

    There are as many approaches as there are individuals, I'm sure. I don't think of myself as having many cameras, but when I start to count them all, I'm always surprised. Sometimes I even forget a camera or two, and am genuinely surprised when I find them.

    I very much admire those who are able to keep it simple, using just one single camera, or has several setups of the same thing, for backup purposes.

    John, my opinion of course, but it seems to me getting rid of things on principle is silly. You may regret it at some point. I've made that mistake and seen others make it. My advice for what it is worth is not to sell stuff unless you either need the cash or don't have the space.

    At least the aperture ring is still in the back... on some of the lenses. Hey, it's not as bad as going from an old Brit bike to a new Harley!

    I also find myself developing a dangerous new attraction to preset lenses. T-mount lenses too.

    The directrix of the local library has a very strange young boy, he's interested in old guns, film and film cameras, all sorts of things no modern 12 year old should even know exists. I'll most likely give him a good working body and a lens or two.

    No, in Rhode Island he could get away with nudity, as long as he wore a silly grin.

    John, sell it all and invest in an iPhone. Then you can be a photo journalist!

    ...NOT
