    Acute episode of G.A.S.

    There's a Mamiya 645 Super, AE finder, 80mm N lens and a 120 back somewhere in the bowels of the USPS, on it's way to me this night... The seller is happy, Paypal is happy, I'm eager and my bank account is an astonishingly small amount lighter. Now I wonder if I've got a 645 holder for the D5 lying around somwhere?

    Maybe in California having gas is cute but here in smog free Wsconsin it is best taken care of in private.

    G.A.S. is a very serious condition and one that I've struggled with most of my photographic 'career'. There's a complete 'Blad 500cm for sale at £395 notes at Abbey Photographic in Blackpool and, and erm...... drooool!!!!!

    Me, too. The other day I told my wife I had decided to buy camera A, but before I did, I had to sell camera B. My dear, sweet spouse told me that I could get A without selling B. Among health care professionals dealing with addiction, she is known as an "enabler". :rolleyes:

    Funny, my wife said something like: "Sweetie, I don't care how many cameras you buy, I just wish you'd occasionally get rid of some of the stuff you don't use anymore." I think she's just worried we'll wind up on some daytime talk show with a film crew documenting the one path through all the piles of unused cameras, computers, bicycles, etc...

    I'm single - I can do whatever I want! Of course, snuggling up at night with a Mamiya 1000s leaves a bit to be desired.

    Mine too. You should have seen the look after the 8x10 showed up.

    Dean, if GAS is a big concern, there's a lady that does consignments on eBay. So, your cure would be Elke sells'er.
