Camera bags. How many do you need? I'm certain it is n+1, where n is your current number of bags.

Fortunately it appears that I'm not the only one of this mind and I find them quite easy to sell on in search of the next 'perfect bag'.
Untill
N+1 > D-1 where D is the number leading to a divorse. Offcource unless that is your goal.

It's very fortunate for my bank balance that there are no R5s in stock anywhere....

I bought yet another camera bag from the show.
Yet another Vanguard - Alta Sky 53.
£249 on the Vanguard website
£199 on the WEX website
20% Vanguard promo code = £160 :banana:

I'm sure I didn't need another bag but I couldn't pass this up
GAS at its best - or worst

Only 3 bodies? I've got 3 Fuji bodies alone. 2 or 3 Nikon DSLRs and 2 1 series. Not so many lenses though!

Well, that's not entirely true, but if wishes were fishes I'd have a netfull.

I spent an hour during the night very thoroughly researching the Contax G2!
Why? I have sworn never to return to 35mm film photography and yet it still bugs me. So no confession regarding purchase just lust!
Funny as I’ve spent about a week doing the same although I thing the G1 would suffice, especially at the price point. That with the 28mm lens would be an excellent setup.

Honestly not me, he is a Pentax man and :canon:.
The most lenses I have ever owned at any one time is 6. What I am guilty of is buying, trying and then selling. Does that count as GAS:thinking:
Yes.. repetitive, recurrent gas!
