LBI (Lens buying Insanity)

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
