I don't have an A100, but I do have a KM Maxxum 7D! I skipped all the models in between that and the A99, which I still own.

Also intrigued you still have an α100 left in your camera kit. There can't be many Dyxum members with one now.
I have one, use it seldom (well, never) but I will use it for the A-mount retirement party


I guess that means at least 2 Dyxum members still own an α100 .
It was my first DSLR but I sold it long ago to partly fund the move to the α700.


Make that 3 , the a100 was my first DSLR . I still have it and it works great .
I later bought a Dynax 7d as a back-up and second body and still use it from time to time ( it's a nice camera to use ) .

I got my A100 as a back-up when my 7D went to Minolta to repair the FFB problem.

Indeed , I adjusted the typo.
It got there because, in my mind at least, this is G-type lens, below a GM, and similar price level and specs as what I would expect from a G.

I'm impressed. I just have to get to September without any new lenses to match your achievement

Hi I'm new here, retired and also suffered from Gear Acquisition Syndrome.
I am Still using an A100, an A330 (just died) and my 'go to' A35.
On a whim I bought an A6000 with the 16-50 pancake lens. I can't get on with the darn camera so it mainly gathers dust, although when I do get around to playing with it, I have an Industar-61 which has been adapted so it's a bit like a tilt shift lensbaby. I also have an e mount to a mount Pixco speed booster which gives full frame performance to my cheap line up of a Minolta 50mm Macro, Cosina 100mm and M42 mount vintage lenses. (Helios 44M-4, Helios 44-2 Helios (made in Japan) 28mm and a Derek Gardner 28mm).
I too have taken the pledge and so far no new lenses for over a year.

Hi @SuffolkBobby

Welcome to Dyxum, and it's perfectly ok to confess to some GAS here. In fact, it would seem to be perfectly normal to have the affliction. That's a nice collection of Helios lenses. May I ask what sorts of subjects you like to photograph?

Hi Wētāpunga
Thanks for the welcome.
I'm restricted to my home by age taking it's toll on my bones.
I enjoy photographing whatever is provided for me within the garden, usually plants and flowers as and when they arrive, although I spend a lot of time experimenting with close up/macro and water droplets.

I've now passed the 11 month mark with no new lens purchases. Closing in on my 12 month target...

To be fair, it's hard to think of a lens that would add much to my current lineup for preferred subjects and if there is such a thing, it hasn't appeared for sale yet.

I had not purchased a new lens since will before the pandemic, in 2019.
I had not purchased a zoom lenses since my original A7. I have not been much into zooms. But a few month ago I had a setback! I bought a zoom lens! The Tamron FE 28-200mm f2.8-5.6 Di III RXD. Not being a fan of zoom lenses, I'm actually surprised at how good this lens is. I took it with me to Germany in June and must say it is an almost perfect travel lens. Not 24mm at the wide end and some CA at 28mm. I had the opportunity to use friend's Sony FE24-105mm G and I must say the Tamron compared favorably, except it zooms out to 200mm and is much smaller and lighter.
I was also able to use their Sony 40mm G and that is a very nice compact lens. If I didn't already have the Batis 40mm I'd have to consider it. I think it would be great on the A7C.
Sorry to admit my setback! Shame on me! And for a Zoom!
Regards,
Kelly

I did my whole 3 week vacation in Newfoundland with three lenses

Most used: Tamron FE 28-200 Di III RXD, as Kelly mentioned above a jack of all trades which is good at most of the trades you throw at it.


For birds, other wildlife and far away landscapes: Tamron FE 150-500 Di III VC VXD, bought it just before the trip and got a lot of good bird, wildlife and landscape images with it.


Just to be sure, but only used a few times: Tamron FE 20/2.8 Di III OSD: for those cases that the 28 mm of the first lens wasn't wide enough and a handheld stitch wouldn't be practical.

I had two bodies with me, the A7ii with the 28-200 and the A7Rii (mostly) with the 150-500 and the few instances I used the 20 mm. Avoiding lens changes in the field was an objective which was achieved this way, except for a very few instances
