LBI (Lens buying Insanity)
Apr 2, 2012

Well there is LBA but then there is LBI, Lens Buying Insanity. Ok its not that bad when you take into account the fact that i resell most of what i buy and keep some of it. Its really the only way i can enjoy my hobby and still keep my head above water.

So from April 1st 2011 when i started this reselling to April 1st 2012 I bought 139 lenses, here is the list... I've sold 98 of them, have 28 still for sale and have kept 13 i think, the accounting can get confusing at times. I guess have a look, i'm sure some of you have a number of these wonderful lenses.

Oh and for those who's wife's think they buy too many toys, well i guess you could show them this list

Items in bold i still have at least one up for sale
