You know that you have too many cameras when...


when someone asks you how many cameras you own, and you actually have to think about the answer for more than a second or two.

(this is even worse when someone asks about lenses)

You know that you have too many cameras when, your friends start commenting that one can't ride two horses with one a** and you have no idea what they're on about.

... There's a specific user case for which you've bought a camera, but when that user case occurs, you've still got more than one obvious choice.

Alternatively and less boringly: when you attend a photography workshop and you can help each one of your fellow students set-up their camera, regardless of make or model.

You know that you have too many cameras when...

…you don't think you have enough.
…your peripherals (cords, chargers, batteries, straps, etc.) need to be transferred to a bigger suitcase.
…your better half comments 'you've gone full circle with your cameras' (was told this yesterday while caught in the act of transferring peripherals to a bigger suitcase)
…you take less (real) photos,
(i.e., you notice your Lightroom catalog is mainly test shots and photos of gear from differing angles - obviously ready for sale.)
