You start to think months ahead about what Kiev gear you can get for your birthday or Christmas or with your tax refund.
You own lenses that range from 30mm through to 250mm with several repeat purchases in between so that you can "compare" them.
You search eBay several times a day for new listings containing the word "Kiev".
You are not deterred one bit by light leaks, frame spacing problems, and unexplainable flare because you got a few "good" shots on your last roll.
You keep a set or two of jeweler's screwdrivers in your camera bag "just in case".
You are now 100% convinced that dust between elements, scratches on the glass, flecks of paint, internal shiny parts, and splotchy lens coatings don't matter at all.
You keep hoping that your next Kiev body MIGHT be a "good one".
The Kiev 60 is starting to look like a beautiful camera.
You don't think brand new Kievs smell bad anymore.
You honestly believe in your heart that your Kiev camera and lenses take pictures that equal or better Hasselblad and Rollei stuff.
