From film camera, my first digital dSLR was a 50D... and a year later, added 5D2... don't use the 50D much or the film camera any more but still have them just in case.... don't see the point of selling them..

I have 3 Body's but I do get paid for work and in the process of opening a Studio with my Shooting buddy .

I started in the DSLR world with my XT then ordered the 7D and while that was shipping a friend was selling his 20D which I promptly took , and my Buddy has a 5Dc that I can use anytime but he is using it more these days so I may get a lightly loved one for my self .

I currently have 2 7D bodies (previously 2 40D's) with different lenses attached. I like being able to switch to a different focal lenght without having to change the lens on the camera.

I have been using a T2i and just ordered the Canon 60D for another body. I do a lot of macro work so the T2i will stay on my Sigma 50-500 with ext. tubes. The 60D will be on a Sigma 180mm macro for handheld macro. Also with my Canon 100-300L and 17-40L as needed.

I'm strictly a hobbiest and often use two bodies. Last Sunday I was shooting the 5Dm2 with a 70-200 and the 40D with the 300. Which lenses I have on the two bodies varies, but I often use two bodies.

Frequently when I'm shooting, it is not an environment where I would feel comfortable changing lenses - water spray, smoke and ash being the most common culprits.

I am pretty strictly a hobbyist, and to go along with my XSi and 40D I just picked up a 5D MkII. I'm definitely keeping the 40D, and am also having the XSi converted for IR. So I'll have the three bodies. I did an outdoor wedding for some friends with my XSi and 40D, though, and was happy that I didn't have to keep changing out lenses. Plus it's always nice to have a backup.

Total hobbyist, but yes, I do have multiple bodies. A 1D, a 10D, a Rebel and a film EOS 100.

I use the 1D for anything involving the dogs, as it can easily keep up with them and the burst is amazing.

The 10D stays out of the bag with a lens on it all the time. The batteries hold a charge for weeks and it's basically my go-to camera whenever impromptu shooting occurs.

I use a Rebel XS whenever I want to just walk around with a camera, or when I'll be shooting things that I know will need to be cropped...birds and such. If the Rebel could manage more than 3 RAW shots before the buffer was filled, I doubt I'd really carry around either of the others.

I have a 5Dc and a 30D
The 5D is for more " serious work" I do lots of portraits, some events like first communions etc.
The 30D goes everywhere with me, is on top of my desk all the time at hand, is light, and just take fantastic pics.
Another thing is I take lots of Softball shots and the crop factor and faster FPS makes it better for sports
Yes i just love my 5D, but the 30D is just so practical and if it gets banged or even lost I dont care that much, it just works.

I have a 1DsII, 7D, 10D(retired), and a Panny GF-1. The 7D's for speed, the GF-1 is for size and the 1D is for slow deliberate stuff. Each body is interchangeable for each need though, I've done just about anything with all of them.

I keep the 1D with a 24-70 or 24-105 mounted, and the 7D with a 100-400(or maybe soon a 120-300). Gives me options at a moments notice. The Panasonic stays at work, where it's compact size makes it perfect to capture the interesting stuff going on there (I work in Aerial Firefighting).

I wanted something smaller, that is why I got a 60D but all of my lenses are pretty big and its hard to get excited to buy a cheaper smaller lens but I really want something that that is more stealth. The 4/3 systems while pretty good don't really have the control and feel and the lack of a viewfinder is most annoying but I have considered getting an Olympus EPL-2 in place of the 60D.

More then likely I am just going to ad a small prime like a 35 2.0.

I got rid of my crop bodies and got a Sony Nex-5 hoping for a more portable solution but even it's too bulky for a everyday carry around solution. I'll probably sell or trade it for a t2i if I go back to a Canon APS-C body.

I tried the NEX-5 and honestly did not really care for it, I just prefer the DLSR control and if I am going to really compromise I just use my Iphone or S95. I think once I just accept a decent cheaper prime like a 35 2.0 or even a 50 1.8 I will be fine but I am kinda spoiled by these nice lenses I have now. Its all just to bulky.

I like having my 70-200 on my 60D for that extra reach, mostly though it's the 5Dm2 with the either the 24-70 or 24-105. I hate changing lenses on location...

Rebel XT and 50d. I still like and use the XT a lot. I like the small size, so it's often my "carry around" camera when I just want to have a camera with me. I also find it convenient at times (a luxury for a hobbyist like me) to have 2 cameras with different lenses.

I only have one DSLR since moving to Canon, I used to have two with my previous system but to be honest I never used the second body, it used to get loaned out to friends for holidays most of the time. I also have a film SLR that I kept because I could not bring myself to completely get rid of all my beloved Zeiss lenses but my main backup is a Ricoh GX200 which serves as a walk around camera and backup should the 5D MKII give me problems. I figure this is light to carry and any drop in quality of image I can live with should the 5D MKII let me down.

I have three DSLRs, I am a photography student in college, and work for the school paper, and do some wedding and portraiture. I did have more than one camera as a hobbyist, both were dust magnets so having the ability to not change lens in the field was my true season for getting the second. Also, could not imagine myself without a back up now.
