    Well, actually my plan is to do almost exactly as Dan suggested. I would like to rid myself of the lot, save the Nikons...life would be so much simplier.

    You're just a beginner.

    And I don't even shoot much 35mm.

    Ah, but Ted, we know that you're just a mindless accumulator.

    Don't take this too strongly to heart, that's what Charlie Barringer (google him) called me when he became aware of some of the lenses I'd accumulated. After I explained my reasons for getting them, he relented and agreed that the accumulation made good sense.

    So, what are your reasons for having so many?

    Cheers,

    Dan

    Dear Dan,

    Historical accident, and the fact that most of it is worth so little it's not worth selling. Better to keep it for the time then I think, "Ah, yes, what I need is..."

    Then I have to try to find it...

    Cheers,

    Roger

    I don't think you're sick at all!

    Isn't this normal?? I mean, can one ever be too thin or too beautiful?

    My accountant accuses me similarily...but, I can explain all of them...


    (long boring personal history deleted. suffice to say, I can easily rationalize the purchase of each and every one).

    Well, I don't know if any of them are well exposed but, next time I come to Toronto, I'm going to bring you a whole stack of negs.
