Pentax back in the 70's, to Minolta, to Nikon about 1980, then out of it till about 10 years ago and jumped back in to digital from Canon, to Nikon and back to Canon.

I bought a Nikon in 1985, in 1991 I bought a Canon EOS 630, still use Canon cameras today. I have added a few mirrorless cameras but I am keeping my Canon.
Moved from Canon 60D to Olympus OM-D E-M1 because of weight and size. Olympus was/is a great little camera and I got some good shots but at the end of the day I moved back. Found the AF on the Olympus unpredictable and could never select the focus point I needed. The Olympus could never handle moving objects and most of my photos are wildlife or sport. Weight savings were also debatable when you consider the Olympus 40-150 PRO.

None. It's too expensive and whatever gains you get are temporary as other brands soon catch up to whatever new bell and whistle you switched for. I get the kind of photos I'm looking for out of Canon. Photography is an art and the camera is only one tool in the process.

I have been with Canon 25 years or more. I started with a Rebel film camera and started adding lenses, flashes, and bodies. I have thought about moving to Nikon a time or two, but I am to lazy and cheap to switch.

Never really changed brand from Canon but added Leica now as well. They do different things and I rarely use them at the same time. Leica for travelling light or being inconspicuous, Canon for more specialist stuff like hyper wide, TSE, macro or telephoto which the Leica can't do.
Leica M (240), M Mono (246), Summilux 50 f1.4 ASPH, SE 18 f3.8, Summicron 35 f2, Summarit 35 f2.5, Hasselblad 501, Pentax 67ii

Nikon to Canon 1990, Canon to Nikon 2012 when the D800/800e started showing up. A friend was on her way to Asia with two new D800's, I was in Hawaii and she stopped over to let me try them. I shot with one of them for a couple of days, took the card out and she flew off to her assignment. I got back to the mainland a few weeks later, popped the card in my reader and couldn't believe what I was seeing in the shadows. Ordered one immediately.

In 2003 I sold my trusty n8008s and a small collection of lenses to switch to Canon.
