A fair bit of warning, some of these are quite serious!


What are your thoughts after reading the article?

Twitter | Someone said time-lapse?
Pentax K5 | Samsung N9005 | DA 18-55 WR | DA 35 2.4 | DA 50 1.8
Tamron 10-24 SP | Tamron 90 2.8 Macro | Tamron 70-300 Macro
Samyang 85 1.4 ...and a few other manual lenses older than me.

Thank you for sharing this with us it is a great read. I must admit there is always just one more lens that I need, like now I would like a DA 35 f2.8 macro (don't tell the wife) oh and a K5 to go with it. One day Thomas one day. Hope its soon.
Regards John/Jumbo

OMG ... I'm doomed

I've just ordered two more lenses from the USA this evening .... which was swiftly followed by a call from my credit card company, obviously concerned at my regular excessive expenditure at photography retail outlets. Is this LBA or something quite different ...... CCE perhaps ? *credit card excess* ?

Having just bought a DA 15mm as well as two other primes within a matter of weeks, I was beginning to feel that I needed some sort of treatment, but I can see that there are more advanced cases of LBA around for whom treatment might come too late!

It manifests itself in various mutations to most hobbies. The underlying symptoms are always the same, but the outward appearance may be a little different.
