    Red face fengwei, you must confess :)

    how come you can get your gears in such great condition and sell for such good price?
    I have to restrain the demon in my heart almost every time when your wts thread out there:P
    很辛苦的咧
    I have to repeat the excuses again and again: I have no use of them now. I have no space to keep them. I have no time to play with them. I have budget for others. I have eyes watching on my personal spending. I have...... to resist the demon's call: won't you want to hold such a piece in your hand? won't you feel satisfied even just by looking at it? Wonít you regret if itís gone?......

    Do you ask your favourite retail store where they source for stuff good and cheap? (I'd love to have FW lobang contacts, but I just settle for the "retailer")

    Okay, I confess. Everytime I sold something, I'd start to regret almost on spot when I pass the stuff to the buyer. Then turn around I'd get another same or even better conditioned one. That's why my collection never really reduce, at least never for long

    After a while, I'm thinking of selling again 'cause I'm not using them as much as I hoped. That's why you see all the sellings now. But I'm sure I'd regret, and buy them back again in the very near future.

    ....

    So please help me, stop buying from me. So I'd have to keep them, and don't need to look around for them again

    I guess fengwei didn't get his LX or MZS from a store.
    most of time when I spot such a piece, it's either in much poorer condition, or with an OMG price tag.

    if lmt lenses are gems of all gems, LX and MZS are no doubt beauties of all beauties.
    just envy you how many of them were and are in your hands.

    me no space la.
    and my dear son is still actively in age of "lord of destruction"
    I have to pack and hide my gears well behind him every time after use.
    so far damage control is well done, only crack hood and cap each.
    I found hood is more useful to protect lens than block lights most of time, haha

    We must all be grateful for fengwei's great deals... he's got stuff common and rare stuff and in every price range, all in better condition than the junk you find in our local shops.
    Well at least he is prepared to sell his gear periodically, that's a lot better than to be a collector or hoarder of gear that unfortunately never gets to see the light of day because it resides in some dry box somewhere. The thing with buying gear is NEVER to be sentimental about it.

    I think your dry cabinets are actually safe deposit boxes because the stuff you got are worth $$$$$

    actually, a word of thank is due to FW. If not of him, a lot of my stuff are still on the wish list. Only yesterday i got one of his jewels, via Bernard, at a friendship price that i am very happy with. i finally got my UWA, a Pentax 1224!!

    seen that Fengwei had put his heart more to photography, then rest of us.
    with all the money he had, not surprise he end with the biggest LBA and that
    also increase his knowledge on every lens. i supposed that how most of the sifu
    gain their knowledge...

    That is so true. FW's knowledge on lenses and bodies are good for us too. We also learn that way.

    I am now wishing for another lens but the FC at home has stopped me buying for now . . .
