I have a bunch of old lens that never get used but I like looking at them, taking pictures of them and holding them, feeling their weight, rotating their focus and aperture rings...is this a healthy relationship?

    Sometimes relationships benefit from a little obsession.

    It is. Feeling the weight and machanics of beautifully crafted technology is REALLY satisfying. My latest love is a new Kirk, heavy ball head. I can't help but fiddle with it. Good posting!
