    Hey, when my GAS becomes unmanageable, I'll move on to step 2! Until then, I will quietly surf ebay at the end of a long day, Jameson's in hand. Ah, look - a Nikon FG and 50mm in great shape for $67 BIN. Click.

    Running a set of negs from a new (to me) camera is not unlike the feeling you get watching an image appear in the tray for the first time. Graham

    Keeping track of how much money you have spent in total so far will help.

    I've been in recovery for several years but after reading the above post I poured a heavy shot, maybe two shots, and started surfing for a 6mm Fisheye-Nikkor. Pour...Click...Gulp...repeat....

    SIDE TOPIC: Many years ago when I dealt through PayPal a LOT via eBay sales and purchases they gave me more than $200K credit. I wrote them asking, "WTF? I only make $45K per year with my day job and this eBay thing sure doesn't pay much. Please decrease my credit to $10K so I don't have to worry as much about ID theft!!" They never replied.
