While the application by LennyBloke of his Final Rule is clearly necessary for the efficient functioning of the PentaxUser market place, for the rest of us Lubbyman's Corollary should also be applied: All lenses must be field tested at least once per year. The logical implication for the application of LennyBloke's Final Rule by anyone other then LennyBloke is obvious.

A word of caution!
Be very wary of the LennyBloke, he's a lenses dealer and has been known to hang around outside camera clubs pushing his stuff.
He says things likes " come on man, I show you a good lens, the best of lens, you know you need it man"
Surfs the inter web also, seeking out the unsure, the undecided lens addicts, asking themselves "will I, won't I buy this?"
A few sweet words from this LennyBloke and you know you're hooked

Brilliant! And made me laugh out loud. He's also a lovely man which makes it 'worse'. (I speak from experience, I love the lenses I've bought from him, invariably understated e.g. good = excellent and so on, camera case, the... you get the picture.)
Be well, stay safe, but most of all, invest in memories

I have never bought a lens from LennyBloke.

I do not have four 85mm lenses, two of which were from LennyBloke.

I have not transgressed from Pentax to Zeiss lenses, thanks to LennyBloke.

I may be in denial.

Sigh. Will it ever end??

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