Let me see, Guy, you've sold how many M8s, R8s, R9s, DMRs, a Canon or two,  memory fails me and yet I see your future -wait it glows, there a red spot soars above your head, it says "S2"

Trying to find the holy grail. No more than most Pros' though. There just a means to a end. The only thing i want soaring over my head is dollar signs.

I have a Canon 1Ds MkI, it's more than enough for what I need from a 35mm, and it complements my P25 very nicely. I really don't understand why you would want/need 3-4 cameras with similar specs, I suspect some are more interested in the gear than taking photos.

If your asking me it is over a 5 year period , nothing unusually there. I have nothing except my P25 plus. If the P21 Plus had ISO 1600 than I would have that also otherwise need nothing except a backup back which that i could use.

1ds2,1ds3 work horses but I'm really a Nikon kind of person so Kodak dcs760, Nikon F4 and F5 and a range of lenses, sold the 14nx . Not sure why I bought the 1ds3 now, doesn't seem a huge leap from the 2 , but at least I have a backup. Looked at a friends D700 last night and had a special moment.
Can't see the point of spending any more money on 35mm camera bodies now!

Main reason I kept my 1DsII was for wildlife...

4 x Fuji S5, my main squeeze with Zeiss and Hassy glass.

Kodak SLR/n, quirky but ideal for certain situations were I need slightly more rez than the Fujis but mostly sidelined by the MF systems now.

Ricoh GRD, the one and only!

nailed to the N.
D3, D2x, D2h, D70, D100 and a SLR/n for good measure.

looking for a D1x on the cheap.
my D70 is not a D70ir.


edit:
I also used a 5D before the D3 came out for low light.

Got rid of all my Canon gear, most recently a 5D and 1DsIII. I for one, do not think the 5D II will hold anything to MFDB. I know that at least my 1DsIII did not. Megapixels aren't everything. I now have a P1 AFD and 30+ on the way as my main system. I still keep a P&S camera on the side for quick shots.
