    I have an Olympus E-510 so I guess that would be my favorite. If I had to do it all over again I may have gone with the Nikon or Cannon just for the less expensive lenses but the Olympus has great glass so I can't complain.

    I used to have a Cannon 400D now have a 50D and really enjoy it. And although its nice to have cool equipment and such some of the best photos i have ever seen were taken with cheap point/shoots technique always outweighs technology(not saying i have either lol)

    i've been using a nikon d200 since early spring of 2006 - a bomber digital slr (i've taken it all over the world in all kinds of conditions) with controls for manual photography geared towards shooters w/ an analog slr mindset. i paired my d200 w/ a nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 and a nikkor 50mm f/1.4 - travel-wise, with these two glass, i have enough flexibility to shoot in just about in any situation.

    Great shots Matthew!

    I used a Nikon D200 and was very happy with it and thought I needed nothing else. Then we upgraded to D300's. Was surprised at how much more I enjoy the 300.

    I've got a Nikon D200 myself, but would love to have a D90. Specifically for the HD video capabilities.

    Was recently upgraded from a pair of canon 1dmk2n to a pair of 1dmk3
    The image quality has taken a massive jump, but the autofocus has taken a massive dive
    When I get a sharp photo, it is generally a cracker.
    I prefer the old 2n though

    I've been trying to sell my D60 for a while now, I am planning on moving to full frame and getting the D700. Possibly D3S, depending on how good my tax return check is.

    Just got a Canon T2i to replace and old EOS ELAN film camera and absolutely love it. It gives me the flexibility for creative shooting and still provides point and shoot capability with LCD live view composing for my wife.

    After missing my Nikon D50, I went with a Nikon D3100 and ditched the kit zoom lens in favor of the prime 35mm f/1.8 DX offering. Makes a great light 'n' fast setup!

    Just got my Nikon D3100 yesterday. It's entry level, and physically very small, but it works very beautifully and swiftly. I like t a lot so far, but I doubt it will be long before I want something bigger and better b

    Congrats fellow D3100 owner! You have probably seen Nikon now has the D7000 out for a mere $1,200 (body only). :laugh: Something to drool over, though...

    Yes, I have seen that. It's just a tad rediculous...

    Nikon D80/Sigma "Dirty Thirty" 30mm 1.4 is my "point & shoot." For sports it's the Nikon D300/MB-D10, 80-200mm 2.8. For Portraits, D300/85mm 1.4. Covering Hollywood events, the D300/MB-D10 is mated with the 28-70mm 2.8 ("The Beast"), Joe Demb flash bracket, Nikon SB-900 with homemade flash bounce, Nikon SD-8 external flash battery pack, & 8-gig CF card.

    I've been saving for the D700 that will be my portrait body when mated to the 85mm/1.4.

    I have a Panasonic LX3 for when my shoulder and neck neck beg for relief.

    I also have a Canon IS 1400 that lives in my pockets. It records 1080p video and is thinner than a pack of cigarrettes.

    I've had my Nikon D300 since it was first introduced a few years ago to replace my Nikon D70s. I'll stick with the DX format as long as I can since I've got a couple DX lenses already. I used to have a Canon AE-1 but when I finally was able to afford a DSLR camera, I did some research and decided to go Nikon. I'm hoping that my D300 body will last for a while. In the meantime I'll save up my green stamps and invest into more pro glass and a better tripod.

    I fondle a Nikon D90 with a Nikkor 18-55 for most use, chuck on the nifty fifty for specific applications.

    I'm going to update my choice, to the new canon 1dmk3 that I have been issued
    It's heaps better than the mk2n I used to have, when it focuses correctly
    Looking forward to the 1dmk4 though, should get one early next year
