I'm new to Nikonians - great and informative group, by the way.
I frequently see the acronym NAS and wanted to know what it stands for. Thanks...

Here on Nikonians NAS = Nikon Acquisition Syndrome.

It is the difficult to control need to acquire more Nikon gear and associated stuff.

There is no cure.

It has two related meanings here:

1. NAS = Nikon Acquisition Syndrome, something which is contracted too frequently by individuals spending more time than they should reading about existing, new or anticipated Nikon gear. Scientists think it has to do with a chemical outgassing from overused computer keyboards.

2. NAS = Nikon Acquisition Symptoms, the manifestation of the Syndrome in which otherwise sane photographers actually begin uncontrollably clicking Buy Now or Add-to-Cart buttons on web sites, or attending retail camera store sales counters and shoving credit or debit cards into the readers.

Thanks for all the feedback...
I didn't know exactly what it meant, but I suffer from it myself.

I do! I do!!!

I'm suffering now because I'm trying to justify the purchase of new DX lenses faster than f3.5 of my 18-200mm but am having a difficult time of being critical of it's capabilities and very wide FL usefulness on my D7000. Do I really need less than 18mm - I dunno? So I guess I'll just get a Pano head with electronic motors and controls to do mega-pano shots. MAYBE!?
