Collective noun: a Stash, an Arsenal or a Hoard of Lenses?
  • I envy those who have a set of lenses. Mine are more like a clutter. I might even have to admit to having accumulated "an embarrassment of lenses".

    When I stack my most used ones together they look like a small city CBD. I would prefer a CBD of lenses to my current full postcode of lenses with its outlying trashy suburbs.

    OK, so we've got a Murder of Crows, a Huddle of Lawyers, a Splatch of Brochures on a hotel-room sideboard...

    What's an appropriate collective noun for a group of lenses?

  • As Carlin would say - all the lenses are male toys and are made to look like dick.
    So, it is just "dick-fest"
    Btw, average lens length in collection is always in reverse proportion to actual dick length.
