What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

Seem a lot to ask for a couple of Cosina manufactured zooms of merely above (?) average quality, even if they are gold-plated and come in a wooden presentation box Have to admire, albeit grudgingly, however, the seller's chutzpah.

I thought the original price was surprisingly reasonable for a collectors item like these. The ebay price is a bit silly. Personally, I'd rather spend my cash on lenses I'd actually use. K.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

There are lots of silly priced ebay "rare" items - I suppose there's always the chance that someone has been looking for that exact thing and is willing to pay for it. But I'm very much in your camp Kris - lenses to use

I've been through the collectors stage and had the benefit of trying some rare, expensive and cheap lenses - I now have a core set that get used fairly regularly, with only about 20 or so lenses still to part with

That is the part that scares me... ~mutters to myself~ "I have four 85mm lenses... I do not need another 85mm lens... "

Be guided by what William Morris would have said if he had been a photographer: "Have no lens in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."

But, but , but ... all my lenses are useful and beautiful. It's just that some lenses get used more than others.

I think many of us can join in the muttering ...

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.
