    You're absolutely right, Benjiboy. Maybe we should say only that this particular episode has passed.

    I am not cured of GAS, but I have all the cameras that I ever wanted and I am a happy camper now. I am so busy using these cameras, that I have not had GAS for over two years!
    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.

    It's a lovely liberating feeling Steve to be happy with the equipment you already have, and just concentrate on enjoying using it.

    I found the best cure for GAS is to spend any excess money on photobooks and well-made prints from fellow photographers.

    I'm in that situation too.... but then some wonderful thing shows up out of nowhere and I waste a couple weeks sorting out and testing the new gear and selling off the old. I'm just now doing it once again settling into some Contax RTS stuff that a friend wanted out of his closet (I sold some of it to him when it was new). I love the lenses, I really do, but I'd be better off spending the energy on picture taking. I need to take Nancy's advice and just say "no". Maybe next time.

    Sirius Glass's comment is the best advice. Stay busy taking pictures with what you have.
