Re: Collections - lenses versus stamps?

You have described my affliction well. The morphing from….be interesting to have…to that more or less endless hunt for the hidden gem in nests of the truly mediocre. If you know all the number codes for Vivitars, get your temperature scanned. Watch lens repair youtubes for enjoyment, seek help. Much of the initial lure for me was the absurdly low prices for equipment one could never afford 40-60 years ago. But what led to the GAS was the existence now of mirrorless digital bodies that allow laboratory-like precision in adapting and testing the vintage optics. Old, retired science teachers like me can experiment endlessly. Harmlessly. Pottering. As Wallace Stegner said… killing time til time gets around to killing me.
