A Nikon user has written an article that may be hard for some of us to read:

Yeah, I have too many cameras. But they're mostly film cameras and I'm somewhat of a collector (not a rampant buyer/seller). And I've actually used almost all of them within the past year. Hey, I'm slowing down, too...I now have almost all the Nikon film SLR bodies I originally wanted. And I only have three DSLR bodies. That's not excessive! Lenses? You can never have enough lenses! Lenses are each a unique view on the world, and I use different ones depending on mood and photographic objective. I could always use a couple more flash units, though. Bags and tripods? Who cares about those?! Not I! Film? I've bought up some significant stock over the years and froze it, but only because many types have been discontinued, and prices tend to increase over time.
