I've got a Pentax dslr, but it doesn't get used much since I got my M4. Nice camera though, works great with old glass!

To go with my film Leicas I have a Canon 7d initially purchased to photograph items for my father's business, but have come to understand that the versatility (telephoto > 135mm and macro) is important to go along with a Leica

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.

I agree about the "purposeful" shooting you talk about. I carry a d lux 5 as my backup camera for fun, quick stuff. I've actually sold my dslrs' for lack of use since going to Leica, first the m8, and now the m9. My favorite dslr is the Olympus, albeit it's small sensor, I never saw any loss of detail even with drastic crops.

I used shoot with a Leica M5, then a Contax G1.. But, I have found that right now, I don't need a larger RF at the moment.

I have a Konica C35, and a Ricoh Singlex TLS with a few primes from 28-200, and a Panasonic G3 as my Digital...

My film cameras are rotated much faster than my digital cameras. :shock:

I have been looking at getting a Leica LTM body as a next RF, maybe with a 35mm lens The Russian J12 (Great Zeiss copy), I have a VF already; the Olympus VF-1 (which is good for 28mm, and 35mm/40mm).

Two film Leicas. Both in the Billingham bag for serious documentary work as well as fun.

Five Nikons (all manual focus except for one AF)...all film bodies with glass in two separate bags.

Sold all of my digital SLR's in favor of the M3 and R4. On the trigger for an R8/R9.

Hope to get back to shooting in warmer weather as my shutter finger needs the exercise!

Whoa, NICE!

I still have fond memories of the K-1000. :)

Ok, I'll limit it to what I currently own and have used within the last year:
Pentax 20D, Pentax KX, Pentax K2, Rolleiflex 2.8F, Tachihara 4x5 field, Mamiya 6 (2-1/4).

Nice! As an A-1 shooter I was always curious about the T-90 but never made the leap.
