    Andy, get a grip on yourself. Take a deep breath and say to yourself, "I will control myself, I will only buy one more time then quit".

    But then you see that Graflex, and think, hmm, It might be neat to have a pre-anniversary to join my Anniversary and Pacemaker... he only wants $200 and thats a nice lens on it... Plus it comes with those extra holders, they never hurt.

    This last lens will be different and enough for now.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    My go to excuse is "they ain't making any more of them!"

    I went from no Polaroid Land Camera's to two in a weeks time. I am now up to 11 cameras total since August 2011.

    Why on Earth do I need an Ilford Titan pinhole, when I have a perfectly good 5x4" Field camera and set of lenses?

    Blast, too late, I already pressed the 'confirm' button....

    If it gives you joy, why fight it?

    Gas Attack.. Then Cured?? There is no cure! You have to learn how to live with it and keep it under control.. I was looking at a 35mm kit a few weeks ago and thought "wow.. this would be nice to have" then i realized that i have 3 of them already! Well.. to make a long story short I'm going back and forth emailing the seller to work out a price. Let the wife hold onto the checkbook and credit cards until you get it under control. There isnt a cure, you foolish young man

    Reason why? Because the cameras aren't 3000$ per body. It *is* enjoyable...

    Lenses on the other hand.....
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
