I could not resist ... again!

Oh, boy! Remember this thread?

I wrote that I only will buy other lenses if I can get them for fair prices.

Well, it happened again...

1. I've also already received a mint Kiron 2/28 (K-mount) for 9.99,-. A great lens!
2. I am waiting for a Pentacon auto 1.8/50 and a Pentacon 4/200 which I got for 28,- together, both in very good condition.
3. I am waiting for a Helios-44-2 (back to the roots!) which I got with a camera for 5,50.
4. I am waiting for a Vivitar 2.5/28 (made by Kiron!) for which I paid 11,-.

Beat me, kick me, punch me ... but I cannot resist if I find a nice lens for prices that I really find affordable!

Hahaha - how are we going to stop you??

I really think there is an addiction about buying lenses so cheaply. The obvious reasons are that opening new parcels is just like Christmas, and there's also the shopaholic syndrome. But maybe it's also because we remember how expensive and out of reach they once were.

We are lens alcoholic, I had also stop my purchases, but I couldn't. Now I really need to sell out many of them.

That's it, Peter! You're absolutely right!

We are "lensaholics", Attila! Laughing

We need to go to those group therapy things.

Those where you sit in a circle and each in turn say how good was your day when you did not even enter the room with the lenses. Laughing

Some will also say proudly it's a month they haven't seen the mailman's face. Laughing

Some great bargains there!
