    Finally, I'm cured of GAS

    Can't say that I really need one of these:

    " Tee - color " of rear lens cell is caused by radioactivity.You should store it in a remote place and you should not stay closer than 6 feet longer than 60 hours a year.

    I don't know if your cured yet......at least you realize you would need a new camera or two to go with that lense......

    Glad to hear you are cured. As for me, I'm wondering what lensboard I'll need to mount it on my Chamonix 4x5.

    In the current World economic situation the best cure for G.A.S I know is the thought of losing ones home, and I consider myself fortunate that I can keep the equipment I have.

    You're either in recovery or denial with GAS.

    Like alcoholism I can't claim ever to be cured, but I'm a recovering G.A.S sufferer, it's about three years since I made my last significant purchase, I'm retired on a fixed income, and am putting paying my utility bills first especially if we have as cold a Winter in Britain this year as last year which was the coldest since 1634 .

    Interesting reply that strikes a chord, Ben. I recently retired, made sure before retiring that my 2x3 kit was pretty complete.

    And it is, although my Baby Bertha (2x3 Graflex hung on a 2x3 Cambo SC) isn't completely debugged yet. Funny thing is, my wife keeps telling me to spend the money needed to make it fully operational. Verboten here, but she also tells me to get a good grade of digital SLR.

    My last fling was an aerial camera lens bought as a speculation. 200/2.0 S.F.O.M., covers 4x5, about 7 kg. Not all that expensive ...
