You MAY have enough equipment when....

These things just happened today / this week:

You may have enough cameras when it takes you 5 minutes to figure out where you stashed the Spotmatic when the new lens arrives. (It was in my work bag, the 5th place I looked)

You may have enough lenses (for the moment) when you just bought two with 58mm filter size, and neither has the cap. But you don't mind, though the next camera show's 2 months away, because now you have lenses to fit that cool red filter with the red anodized frame.

You may have enough accessories when, having walked out of the last camera show with a FED 3b / Industar-61, you just happen to have the right size Series 6 adaptor for it, and a rf-style lens shade.

You may be using enough cameras when you start forgetting which ones have film, and which film it is...

I wish I was in that sort of "dilemma" as you are.

You may have too much equipment when you remove books from the bookshelf to make space.

You also have too much when said bookshelf start to curve downwards

You know you have enough gear when you discovered that your latest LBA purchase is identical to a lens you already have.

(not that it's happened to me or anything)

You don't know how many cameras and lenses you have.
Need to count it all some day.
