Oh, boy. In the last year I bought a T2i, 18-55, 50D, 50mm f/1.8, Tokina 12-24mm f/4, then took a break for a couple months before buying a Nikon D50, 18-55, 50mm f/1.4, D70s, 60mm macro, Canon AE-1, FD 50mm f/1.4, FD 28mm f/2.8, D600, Tamron 70-300, 24-85, 17-35, 80-200, then inherited a GF3, 14-42, XTi, 18-55, 50mm f/1.8.

Then I finally got a job.

Good thing I sold most of those along the way, or I would probably be living in a cardboard box by now.

The first step to recovery is admitting that you have a problem!  8)

I have a problem, I have a problem, I have a problem

too few bags, too few lens, ....

I have a problem

 ;D

I wasn't going to Post here, because I certainly don't have a Problem, or is that a sign of I'm in denial ??

Very Funny fellow Gearaholic, the "M" was a mistake, I have one, but it's not Canons best attempt, You may notice I dropped the "D800" off the List as well, another "Mistake" good Camera, just not as good I felt as all the Hype suggested. And now I'm just waiting, waiting, waiting, where the hell is that 200-400f/4 (1.4x), seriously, I don't have a Problem, really.

"M" stands for "mistake".   :o Canon has TOTALLY missed the mirrorless boat. Totally. Perhaps the upcoming model with VF will be better...but the whole opportunity their (in my mind) is to make a really compact, quality camera system that "complements" a FullFrame system. MFT does that beautifully.  For any casual or web stuff etc. I leave the big gear at home and have fun!
...and there is more to buy........:-)
(Also interesting to hear your take on the D800...yeah...I didn't even look at that, though tempted..I really do not have any need for files that big...and to completely change out systems...just too much craziness...perhaps I AM getting control of my addiction...LOL!).
Now about that lens list.......

who cares? the ship canon sails is still faster then any mirrorless boat.

you can read how bad biz is for panasonic or oly all day.
rumors about panasonic selling it´s camera business, oly being nearly broke etc.

and every 6 month they release updates nobody really wants.

i had a olympus e-pl1 once... they still use the same crappy display with 460k pixels on the e-pl5?

True about the updates, no one really wants...but the OMD is incredible camera with great lenses (fisheye to 600mm) for a "compact" system. You are wrong to trash the whole system. I sell photos in galleries taken with that kit. Your loss...and notice I said it is a great "compliment" to a FF system. It would never replace a 5DIII for instance.... one must compare apples to apples. The "M" is just not really anything definable tho,  for the most part. Kindof thing where you buy it cause it sounded like a good idea with your existing lenses and then you never really use it much.... I guess the big disappointment there is that for its date it was released there is just no excuse for that AF situation...and no VF (or optional one), but hey..to each their own. Perhaps Canon can catch up in that dept. and make it as good as other areas of their system, which is grand.

Is m4/3 a 'compliment' to a FF system, or a 'complement' to a FF system?
Or maybe it's both?
It works well alongside FF, plus the lower IQ of m4/3 reminds you how good the FF system is :)

I wonder why suddenly the OP deleted her ID, she was a great contributor to the forum.

Interesting.  Hide her identity from thieves?

No seriously. She was always three with positive and thought through comments. Hope she comes back.

I'm not sure who you are asking... but I started off with a price mistake.  Then some grandma christmas money pushed me over the threshold so I could get an XS and a 75-300.... and then it started.  Eventually I started buying and selling gear on Amazon and on Craigslist... making 20-50 bucks per sale... and just taking all of that money and putting it towards a camera fund... a fund that my wife resents A LOT.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

XS->60D->5d Mkiii:18-55->24-105L:75-300->55-250->70-300->70-200 f4L USM->70-200 f/2.8L USM->70-200 f/2.8L IS Mkii:50 f/1.8->50 f/1.4->100L->85mm f/1.8 USM-> 8mm ->100L & 85L
