Classic cases pf PhD = Piled Higher and Deeper.
So jealous... you can't handle it. Let me guess Liberal arts? Or none because your comment reflects a certain degree or lack of education...

Such an inferiority complex?  Alan probably has more scientific awards, medals and academic honors than you have brain cells.  And this, from someone who has counted brain cells for a living.  Certainly, he has a better sense of humor than you...

How many of these organizations can count you among their elected membership?  For Alan, the answer is several. 

But yeah, I'm sure you were just a fantastic and committed scientist.  I guess that's why you aren't doing science any more.   ::)

LF Schneider XLs indeed! also Rodenstock, or Sinar.
Then there are the co-opted lenses such as a EL Nikkor 80 mm for UV reflectance. And the Coastaloptics version, that I am contemplating. I do clean out the closet with stuff I don't use anymore. Almost all my C/Y Zeisses are gone (except the 16 mm F-Distagon), and replaced with EOS mount versions. But if it works, and I use it once in a blue moon, I keep it.
Don't know how many lenses I've rotated through; guess around 50 or so. I currently have about 13 SLR lenses (all primes), and about 7 LF (one is the Nikkor-T360/500/720 triple convertible) lenses, plus three stereomicroscope lenses, and five compound microscope lenses for my personal scopes.

So, your sickness runs deep.

In my house, the first rule is... we don't ever talk about the lenses or the cameras.

The second rule is WE DON'T EVER TALK ABOUT THE LENSES OR THE CAMERAS !!!!  ;)

When too many Canon lenses are talked about here I think... how cute.
We're a DANKs household, so two science PhDs, no issues with "toys". And I make figures for her papers "nice". Get a lot of milage out of that :-)
Re Canon lenses, they are the minority in my line-up (TSE17/24, MPE65, 180M, 300/2.8 IS). The good ones are Zeiss (F16 C/Y, 15, 21, 25, 35, 100 Classic, 55 Otus) and the EL Nikkor 80.

Ahh, same here... PhD in Biochemistry and wife has PhD in CS. I no longer work in the industry (worked in a startup and fortunately it worked) but wife is in cyber-security.

And Canon is by no means a majority in my house, it is what I use for business (portrait/wedding). Leica is actually a close second to all MF lenses. Analog is starting to rule the house these days as I have the ability to take my time now (love the darkroom). Whats old is becoming new again !

Classic cases pf PhD = Piled Higher and Deeper.

I was just making a joke about your lenses being so numerous that they are being piled high and deep. You shouldn't leap to conclusions about my lack of education or envy of your academic credentials. As it happens, I do have a science PhD myself plus 5x DSc honoris causa.

I found the exchange amusing.
The joke however was a bit subtle.

I do have a real problem - I don't use emojis and some people don't know when I am joking. But, I hate those f*ing yellow things.

Right so your pile is the highest and deepest...

I'm limping by with my current equipment... once I get that new lens with IS and blue goo... then I'll finally be able to go out and take my first decent picture...

Too. Many. WHAT? Eh? 
I also confess to Too. Many. Tripods. I am a Tripo-holic.
And aren't the main users of the "Piled higher and Deeper" jokes the grad student ABDs worrying about cranky committee members, or cynical mid-career academics who resent the corporatization of higher education?

You're lucky CR forum limits the emoji's to just a handful...

Careful there Brian... your compliance department may find you on social networks too much during company time and question your commitment to science;D I was committed to science enough that I sold two of my companies while you were in grad school, bought my house cash and now do anything I want.

Don't worry about it. I think it goes to their heads and causes too much egotism.
