Ha, ha, ha....

Well, to be more precise, my CAS (or I prefer the more colloquial term - CSS" or Camera Slut Syndrome to be more precise) is really more limited to the enthusiast market scene.  Awhile back I had it bad (several years ago), and I maintained three different complete DSLR systems (with dozens of models from Canon, Nikon, Fuji, and Olympus).  I've since dropped down to one DSLR system - Olympus/Panasonic micro 4/3, and the rest that I have are of the enthusiast types (which I'll never get over, as I'm always looking for that perfect all-in-one model).

There is one Nikon DSLR though that I'm very interested in - and that's the new 24 MP Nikon D5200, which is now making its way into the American Market.  I may have to look at that one ('cause I still have a pristine Nikkor 16-85 VR lens which I've kept because it was such a darling of a lens).  In addition, I had such good luck with the likes of the D90 and D5000 (which I've since sold), that the thought of getting just the Nikon D5200 may be in my future - who knows.

Recently, I elected to update my m4/3 collection a bit by getting the E-PL5, and I've got to tell you that in the short time I've had it, this little tank has really amazed me.
