So what does everyone else shoot besides rangefinders?

"My other rig" is usually a Canon 1D Mark IIn or 1v-HS -- or a Hasselblad 503CW(D).

If we go really old school, I still have my Canon FD equipment; and A-1 and some FD glass. It was my first real camera, bought by myself.

I had a Canon G9 for a while - and while the quality and capabilities were great, I just didn't use it all that much. The lag in the camera controls and the fact that I couldn't read the menus without glasses was just a turn-off. Sold it.

Olympus E-5
Olympus EPL-1
Canon 5dMkII
I have a couple old Olympus OM-10 cameras as well for film.

I'm liking the Leica better and better every day.

Ahh, nice - how do you like the 5D Mark II? I've been holding out for the 1Ds Mark IV but I think Canon gave up, packed their bags and went home...

Totally agree; I went from shooting the Canon 95%+ of the time to Leica. Complete switch, and for the most part I couldn't be happier. Though the Canon does a lot of things the Leica can't - for day-to-day shooting and travel, there's just no contest.

Sorry for the late reply....I've been road tripping this weekend and have several hundred shots with several lenses.......

I use that 5dMkii only when I have to for client requests to print very large. I was roped into full frame by mis informed lawyers. Long story. I really don't prefer to use it. I had a Sony a850 first but Sony burned me on a repair so I got the Canon.

For DSLr my all time favorite is the Olympus.


However...............I am rapidly becoming enamored with Leica and this weekend was no exception. I was the ONLY rangefinder among a lot of tourists with DSLr rigs from Canon Nikon Sony and the like. I really REALLY enjoyed myself and am becoming used to it and taking the shots has now become second nature.

:D :D :D :D :D

Ahh, nice. The 5D Mark II isn't all that bad, especially with a good lens. I hope to go full frame on the Canon side one of these days... A necessary evil perhaps? It does things RFs can't, so... I haven't tried any others because of my investment in Canon lenses.

Though I totally agree; a Leica is the way to go for more day-to-day shooting. So much smaller, lighter... Different mindset, yada yada. I went from shooting Canon 95%+ of the time to the opposite!

"My other rig is a 12 gauge." :P

My other cameras are a Panasonic G1, Sony NEX-5, and Leica D-Lux 4. The D-Lux 4 is my car camera for when I need to shoot things I see on impromptu basis. The G1 is for those days I want to take a small zoom everything camera with better IQ than the D-Lux. The Nex-5 hardly gets used and I'm thinking about making it an IR camera. The M9-P is for purposeful shooting be it street, family holidays, or landscape. Nothing really beats it for those 3 things that I've seen.
