Lens Acquisition Syndrome

I feel a bit guilty at acquiring three or four lenses in a year. This makes me fell better:

Recently I've had a severe case of Olympus PEN E-PM1 'accessory buying syndrome', so you are not alone in having an acquisition syndrome

Re: Lens Acquisition Syndrome

I suspect each of your lenses cost more than the total of my job lot of 21.
Spending over 100/month on camera gear makes me feel guilty just getting a few cheap toys doesn't :-)

Re: Lens Acquisition Syndrome

I find it amusing that manufacturers now produce near perfect lenses so, being human, we all want to try old poorly-corrected lenses, with masses of aberrations and weird bokeh
