    Gas Problems

    I haven't bought a new camera or lens for almost a year, and I can feel the Gas building. Just now I was looking at the cameraleather.com site for ideas on what camera to buy next. That's sad. Very, very sad. Sort of like buying a house because you have some remodeling ideas you want to try out.

    Apart from that, my next purchase will likely be an EOS 1V to replace a 1N. Or maybe a Contax RTS II + winder. Perhaps a Contax ST + battery pack. Or maybe an EF 200mm f/2.8. But money's been very tight for the last few years. I find myself perusing the KEH catalog during down-times in the reading room, looking for inspiration.

    My latest 'thing' seems to be trying different make lenses on EOS bodies. The only ones in my arsenal that fit are the Contax C/Y mount and Mamiya M645 mount. Got any other ideas?

    I need a cheaper hobby....

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    What is GAS? Would that be Gear Acquistion Syndrome?

    There are basically two ways of getting rid of gas. Why not pick one and do iot... and then you can stop talking about it.

    Just to add fuel to your GAS . . . how about OM lenses and even the OM Magnifier on a Canon 1VHS?

    How about 1 of these ? Once you use they eye control focus point (ie:7e) you might never want anything else. My GAS excuse for an EOS 3...

    That looks sweet! GAS is creping up on me again. how is the focusing with that, do you use a special screen? I tried using legacy lenses on my canon dslr and and for the life of me I can't get the right focus unless I use live view.

    "Gas problem" is a bit unfortunate a thread title from a user named "flatulent"

    Yup, the 1V is a pretty awesome machine, especially since you can get them for around $500 now. If I shot Canon, I don't see really any reason I wouldn't have one of these.

    BTW, since renting one of these with the 50L for the weekend, i'm starting to get some of that gas too!
