Canon 30D with 24-135 IS lens (sort of share this with the other half), for carrying round every day (just in case!) Canon 350D with 28-85. We also have an Canon A95 "point and shoot" and before that had T90s, A1s and an F1.....

So I guess its Canon

I so agree with John on this.

That being said, I'm sort of split between the two main brands.

Canon 40D, 20D, AOS E2, 17-40 f4L, 24-105 3.5-5.6, 70-300 3.5-5.6, 15, 24, 35, 50.

Nikon F, FM, 28, 35, 50, 105, 300, 80-200.

To be honest, I haven't used the Nikon's since a disastrous day shooting R&N 425 last year. The camera's were fine, I screwed up.

Canon XSi Rebel.
18-55mm lens.
55-250mm lens.

Definitely Canon. I'll most likely bump up to a 50D in the next year or so.

Actually I've used both Canon & Nikon 35mm. I still have the Nikon F2 that I bought in high school. One newspaper I once worked for had Canon lenses as "pool" equipment, so I purchased an F1 & T90. Both were great cameras, but when one is accustomed to how certain cameras are "laid-out", you may not feel comfortable with that camera. I eventually sold the Canons, and went back to Nikon, but one can't go wrong with either one. It's just like the age old question...Ford, Chevy or Mopar.
By the way currently D70, 18-70 & 75-300. I really want a D200 or D300.

Canon G9 and Canon film Elan II. I really enjoy using the G9.
However, I am saving up for either L glass or Canon DSLR. Not sure which to get first, or which model DSLR. Can't decide on XSi, 40D, or 50D. $$?

If you've got money to throw around, toss some of it at better glass first. That'll do a lot more for you than the upgrade to the 50D, I think.

Absolutely true!

However, I use a Nikon D300, 16-85mm vr and 70-300mm vr. I need all the help I can get.

Currently Canon 40D, 50 f 2.5, 75-300 f 4.5-5.6 & Tamron 17-50 2.8

Previous cameras, Canon Rebel and Digital Rebel, a Sony Mavica, used the 1.44 meg floppy disk. I could get like 3 pictures on it using the best setting. Plus 1 or 2 other P & S.

Samsung SGH-A707 camera phone.

When I feel adventurous and want to use serious manual settings however, I have a Canon digital Rebel 300D which I probably won't upgrade until it breaks. Actually, there's something about properly holding an SLR that makes me just feel better about myself. It seems to impress others as well. A 40D would be nice, but it can wait.

Lenses are a Canon 70-200mm L (overkill for me) and a Tamron 17-50, though most of my wide angle shots were taken with the 18-55 kit lens.

I started out with a Canon A80 and still use it occasionally for my train pictures, but I use it almost exclusively with my non-rail stuff. The two of us take good pictures together, plus it doesn't scare people away.

Still, I'm totally outclassed here as far as camera equipment is concerned and that's fine; I'm not a professional. Gotta make do with what you can!
