Is there a chapter in Richmond Va? I AM AN ADDICTED MAN
Just two weeks ago I sold my 12-24 to a cafe member. I immediately started thinking that was not a good idea. I have a photo vacation starting tommorrow and it is primarily a macro trip so I'm thinking this is ok.
Like a robot, today I head out to my local camera shop and plunk down $350.00 MORE than I sold my last one for and got me a new one. I thanked the salesman very much and walked glassy eyed back to the suburban..............................

OH dear Dave,

We all need help...
sold my 70-300 and turned right around with in hours and bought Jims 28mm.

How stupid is this. As soon as I sold my 80-400 I wanted it back.

Bad LLD..

I wish there was a chapter here in King of Prussia, PA....I'm in really BAD shape. I just purchased a 200-400 VR zoom and a Wimberely sidekick, and some lens plates and a ballhead.

Hmmm, how do I hide this stuff from the significant other when it arrives, especially that really long lens?

Oh well, you only live once and life is short, correct? I should only be in the doghouse for a year or 2?

I may be selling my 80-400 if the new lens purchase works out.

Are you serious Dave :shock:

It was Steve - you - myself on that deal. I was hoping we all came out happy, but I guess you didn't.

Glad you went back to it though. :wink:

YES! I got Gale's 70-300! :p

I have tried so hard to not look at the "For Sale" forum. But Gale had to go mention it is some other thread. Of course, I saw it. Waited a day, and well the rest is history.

We should just have a giant library where we can check out a lens for week or two and go back and get another and another and so on.

Congrats on everybody's lens purchases and trades.

I walked into my local camera store today with money to spend after returning a telescope. This is a bad idea to begin with. After asking the salesman that knows me on a first name basis now, to sale me something I walked out with only a Nikon 1.4TC to go with my 300/f4.

He tried a...

28-70/2.8
70-200vr
80-400vr
400mm
even studio strobes didn't tempt me!

Am I cured?????

Of course you aren't cured. LLD probably just goes up and down...I get kind of sad reading all of these posts about people buying lenses. It may be good that im a student with very little money. That way I know I can't afford anything therefore I will never truly get LLD.

That would be cool!

Don,
I like smugmug and if you use them, tell them I sent you and I get a small discount for that. It is easy to use and serves me well. I have not tried pbase, but many peaople like it as well.

Charles,
you got away cheap! Does he send you birthday cards? it is cool to have a camera shop know you.
