    I've been as modest as a young virgin this year, only acquired one camera and one lens, a Contax RX and 50mm f/1.7. I have just offloaded my EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS for a decent sum, and am in the process of listing ALL THE CRAP that I don't use or want anymore. Heaven only knows how much I'll be able to realize out of all this, certainly enough for another new lens or three.

    My wish list...

    Canon EF 135mm f/2 OR the EF 200mm f/2.8
    a few Contax MM lenses
    Contax RTS II and III
    Nikkor midrange zoom compatible with my F4
    and a partridge in a pear treeeeeee!

    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    Ektar 127mm lens
    Nikkor-W 150mm f5.6
    Nikkor-SW 90mm f8
    3 Grafmatics
    Calumet C-2 roll film back
    2 lens boards (flat & deep) for a Graphic View
    Canon Motor Drive MA (to replace mine which has a damaged film rewind lever)
    Graflex RB Series D 4x5
    Manhattan Optical Cycle Wizard B 4x5
    Exacta VX with 50mm f3.5 Tessar
    Zenit-C with 50mm f3.5 Industar-50

    Too big, too heavy, too white. Too conspicuous. Fabulous images, just too damned much work to carry around anywhere. It was my most left-at-home lens. I'm currently dithering between the EF 135 f/2 and the EF 200 f/2.8. Probably the 200; I have the 135 f/2 in FD mount.

    I've been very good since then. In two months, just a 3 1/4 x 5 1/2 Speed Graphic - from the serial number list it dates to around 1911/12 (the list has: 28207 - pre introduction speed – 1911 - wonder what that means - mine is only a couple of hundred higher).

    I'm pretty much cured of GAS lately, all my gear needs have been met and/or discarded. Apart from some more specialty lenses that I don't need, there really isn't anything left on my wishlist. My ebay summary page is looking quite empty, there's not a single item on my watch list and no current bids. There really doesn't seem to be anything left that I want!

    A couple of months ago I picked up an RB67 with 90mm lens and a spare back. Haven't used them yet. If I haven't put a few rolls through it by this summer, out it goes. My Mamiya 645 Pro kit has also been languishing for quite a while, but I'm not ready to part with it just yet. The same goes for the rather substantial accumulation of Minolta gear I picked up several years ago. I can't bring myself to get rid of the XD-11s and assorted SRT bodies; they're just too nice.

    Departing/departed:
    Sold all my Nikon gear to be able to expand my Contax holdings.
    Pair of Gossen Luna SBC
    Canon EF and some A-series bodies, plus some FD lenses that haven't been used for a few years.
    EOS 1N-RS that I've had for five years and never used.

    Acquired:
    Seikonic Starlite meter
    Yashica Mat 124G
    RB67 kit
    A Ricoh Mirai or three
    A few P&S cameras
    Some contrast filters
    Film (mostly Acros) and chems
    Some dead T90s (one resurrected)
    A pair of Elan 7NE (battery grips acquired separately)
    An Elan IIE and a pair of EOS 55 (battery grips acquired later)
    Two Domke bags
    Some leather hand straps

    Wants for the new year? Some time to do some shooting. That's about it.

    Beyond that (if finances improve)...
    Nikon F6 plus a couple of Zeiss primes
    EF 24mm shift lens
    EF 50mm f1.2L to replace the 1.8 II
    EF 100mm f2 IS macro
    Plus one or two... uh... off-topic items that I won't enumerate...

    I have gone from a collection of thirty which doubled when I inherited my father's collection.

    I have given away some of the duplicates I had and for the first time ever, I am now selling stuff on Ebay instead of buying. I was shocked to see my Ebay rating was over 200 just by purchasing stuff!

    I have been feeling a bit depressed lately, so I have bought three (err - four, actually) cameras this week.

    1) Halina 35X - a cheap and nasty that actually works quite well after being liberally doused in clock oil.

    2) Bencini Comet S - takes 127 film which is a tad expensive for my taste so this one is just for looking at - it looks fine, BTW.

    3) Exa IB - only had it a few hours but I like Exakta and Exa cameras so this one is definitely a user. Shutter is a bit stiff but a couple of hours dry firing will probably sort that.

    4) Olympia (no, not Olympus) - a very well designed, very cheap camera - very plasticky . It has a special focus-free lens (their name: looks to be a meniscus lens), four apertures, a motor drive, two (yes, two!) viewfinders - one conventional hold-to-the-eye finder and a waist-level finder and a curved film 'plane' to allow for the meniscus lens. I shall put a roll through this just to see how well or not it works, but it will not be a user.
