    That reminds me of a bad poem ...

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    GAS is good for you (and do you want to buy my Hassie?)

    And no, oniomania has nothing to do with onanism, even though some of us have been known to press camera gear fondly against our bodies. It is a vicious cycle. If you do get new gear, you must not hug it, or your body will generate oxytocin and then your bank account will be drained.
    And I started photographing to get out of my prozac abuse :rolleyes:

    lol

    Søren, you see, the most pragmatic way to deal with these compulsions is to gradually shift them to other compulsions which are not so expensive or damaging to your health. :rolleyes:

    Cool. I guess you'll have to buy a whole lot of interesting, different jugs for them to show them off, don't you? They come in different formats, right? And how about earthworm feed, which brand do you like best, personally?
