Abstract: We give a new approach to the study of conformal iterated function systems with arbitrary overlaps. We provide lower and upper estimates for the Hausdorff dimension of the limit sets of such systems; these are expressed in terms of the topological pressure and the function $ d$, counting overlaps. In the case when the function $ d$ is constant, we get an exact formula for the Hausdorff dimension. We also prove that in certain cases this formula holds if and only if the function $ d$ is constant.
