    More have gone out than came in this year but I'm still way off my impossible dream of one camera one lens.

    Out:
    Nikon F90
    Nikon FE
    Nikkor 20/3.5
    Vivitar flash

    In:
    Nikon F3
    Nikon AF6000
    Fuji GA645

    I threw out my old camera bag and I'm now using a much smaller one. I'm trying to make sure all my equipment can fit in it. So if anything new comes in something must go out.
    Steve.

    Nothing I realistically need. But every so often I find myself checking the KEH website, looking for a black M4P in Ex or better condition. No reason to be doing so...l already have two M6s. But...
    Some Nikons (F6, F5, F3P, F3HP, F2ASx4, F2A, F2 and a D800), with Ai/Ais Nikkors ranging from 15mm to 600mm; Leicas (M6X2), with Leitz glass from 28 to 90mm and a pair of Hasselblads (500c/ms), with Zeiss glass from 50 to 250mm. A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.

    G. A. S. list time

    About chocking on GAS here. At the point where I really cannot shoot everything I've acquired. So, naturally I was in a antiques store yesterday and saw a Nikkormat FT. Only thing that kept me from bringing it home was that it was jammed.

    Why people leave cameras on open access shelves is beyond me. Almost every time they are jammed. Mirror is up, shutter won't fire, and self timer is engaged. I mean you have to play with all the buttons while mom and dad are shopping, right? :frown:

    Eh, screw it. I've owned three off-topic Nikons; four off-topic P&S Canons; a Canon FTb-QL, 4 Pentax H3v/SV meterless screwmount bodies; 5 Spotmatic series bodies; a ME Super; a Super A (black SuperProgram); 2 Hasselblad 500c bodies (almost bought a third); 1 Hasselblad 500EL that was dead; 16 Nikon F bodies of varying vintages and configurations; 17 Nikon F2 bodies of various versions (all metered, but no F2S bodies); 12 F3 bodies (no titanium, limited, or High-Speed models, but regular, HP, and P models); 18 F4 bodies, including one that flatulent1 bought after I'd sold it, then purged at Glazer's for some Contax gear; 5 F5 bodies; 3 FE bodies; 3 FE2 bodies; 9 FM bodies; 3 early FM2 bodies; 25 FM2n bodies; an EM; a FG-20; a N8008; a N90; 4 Nikkormat EL series bodies; 7 Nikkormat/Nikomat FT bodies; 43 Nikkormat/Nikomat FTn bodies; 22 FT2 bodies; and 4 FT3 bodies. Am about to receive two N2000's and another N8008 from KEH, which are coming with a MB-20 for my F4s and some other stuff that I won.

    I've owned too many lenses to count. That, and a few motor drives and flash units.

    Go back to the antique store. Push firmly on the self-timer lever in the clockwise direction. It will start moving with your persuasion and finally fire the shutter. Buy camera. GAS taken care of for a day or two. :-P

    Why no F2S? I love the stylized +- indicators in the DP-2.

    And holy cow, man.

    As for my gear of 2012, I got an F3HP and I still haven't decided whether I like it or not. Other than that, I got a macro bellows and a slide copier. Boring. I'm at sort of at strange place right now, photographically and gear-wise; been feeling aimless and unmotivated. I did bid on a 15mm f/5.6 non-AI on ebay, but lost. I don't know what use I would possibly have for that lens, but it's been high on my wish list for a long time. I also want a PC 28mm f/4.
