p.1 #1 · Are we over-geared ? (EF lenses)


I think many of us have more lenses than what would be neccessary for effective practice of photography. I, for one, certainly do.
However, the question I have is: how bad is FM at being over-geared ?

One somewhat simplistic approach would be to see how many lenses we own.

The poll rules:

* Only lenses equipped with the Canon EF mount count, including third party ones (and ZE lenses as well).
* Teleconverters and extension tubes do not count.
* Only fully functioning lenses count.
* Lens duplicates count too.

Remeber, it's all in good fun.

Hmm typically have 5 in my bag but use 2 90% of the time. Own 7.
Constantly thinking about reworking my lens setup, but generally happy.

You ask about only EF-mount lenses?!

What about FD, M43, Alt, and Medium Format with converters?

Ha-ha! I'll withhold posting on the poll till you clarify!

Totally demented!

I don't see how this is relevant to the question about being over-geared...

You could re-post this poll on the Alt forum for comparison --- adding a few bigger categories beyond dementia.

Oh, wait a minute. I posted my reply before reading Jim's question.

Based on EF mount lenses, I'm only a junior.

OTOH, I'm still totally demented with Atl lenses.

Come on, Jim. You can 'fess up without knowing the answer!

Good job on excluding FD, EF-M etc. What about EF-S?

Excluding those keeps me on the right side of point of no return...

Once more, please read my lips: "Count only lenses which are equipped with the EF(S) mount".

If we start counting other lens stuff, that would get us beyond this forum's scope, into the alternative waters, where they seem to be doing little else but trying to turn a sow's ear into a silk purse.

How about counting Alt lenses that are better than EF "L" lenses?

Counting only lenses that were originally manufactured with an EF mount, I'm an "ARTIST/CRAFTSMAN" --- but it's a troubling sign of Alt Dementia that I had to dig through my records to check this...

Jim. you may count those too, provided you are able to jam-mount them onto your 1DX without an adapter.

Self recognition of one's problem places them on a healing path.

Level - Know It All soon to be Hacker
11 lenses; one is an EF-S, the 10-22 is a real lens and I stand by this fact
3 of these are entry level zooms, 20-35, 28-90 and 75-300 that will soon be sold

If alt and older FD glass were to be included in this pool...does lens Whore provide an image for ya, and I won't even talk bodies n parts, bags, supports and or filter/filter systems

Okay, I'll fess-up.

Just like my namesake, I'm a Junior, but borderline gear-dementia.
