    3 - those in my sig although I'm waiting on an order for the z MC105mm --- anytime now would be good!

    Re: How many lenses do you own?

    With this Poll now closed, I have learned that several members suffer from GAS and have poor eyesight

    GAS = gear acquisition syndrome
    POOR EYESIGHT - this based on the number of references to people having cataract operations

    Seriously, I suppose the Poll results are too small to read too much into it, but the majority here is between 7 and 10 lenses.
    Maybe a better question might have been, how many do you use on a regular basis.

    For the record, I have owned many lenses over the decades, but I often like to buy and sell, trying out different ones. Of course there has been a few exceptions where I have held onto the same lens for many years.
    The most have ever owned in any one period has been 6 and I currently own 4.

    As far as the most used goes, my 200-500mm gets 90% of the use. Meanwhile the 50mm f/1.8 gets about .001% of the use. (17-50mm is just as sharp and more versatile. )

    I don't think you are alone there, as so many people seem to purchase a 50mm then don't use it very often.
    I once read that the 50mm is the most resold lens. Certainly if you look for secondhand ones there is always plenty for sale everywhere.

    Re: How many lenses do you own?

    I recently added the z 24-200
    I went on a cruise around the Greek Islands and couldn’t make my mind up as to which to take. Having read really good reviews, I went ahead and got this…and it was the only lens used. It worked well..

    We look forward to seeing some of your images taken with your Z6 and new z 24-200 lens.

    Gee! Will I get credit for this posting. Or will the credits be missed like the ones yesterday or next most recently missed!
