As of now - back to one 500D. Always needed just one, but FF :)
Having two never really gave anything extra to me. The 500D is keep on working, while have to let go to lovely 5Dc (started to act up, Canon dropped support), never liked 5D MKII. 6D would be lovely, but 500D keep on working...

Two.

6D, my primary body, and a 10D I keep as a back-up. I pretty much never use the 10D anymore, but I want to keep it as a back-up just in case.

I had a 40D in between, but I gave to my niece as a gift when I got my 6D.

Unless I need to replace the 6D due to some catastrophic event, I have no plans for another body anytime soon. I have several lenses I'd like to get, though.

Too many. 5DIV, 5D3, 1DIV, 5Dx2, 50D.

A better question is...of those that you have, could you use them all in manual mode and cough out a good image?

Absolutely.

My first DSLR was the 500D. I loved it, but had to sell it to help finance the 60D in 2011.

I'll have to say many years ago people had debates on crop vs FF. After purchasing the 80D it has been one of the most enjoyable universal "DSLR" bodies I've purchased in a while. It's certainly not the best of the best but it could easily match my 5dmk2 for image quality for events photography. Touch screen focus pulls for video, live view touch screen shutter, very good sensor performance, smallish body like a rebel series etc. For a family "documentation" camera it's captured more photographic opportunities than my 5d3/5d2.

On the other hand a mirrorless body has been another game changer in my photographic experience. Simply due to light weight I've had more photographic opportunities shooting due to convenience. I feel my Fuji "render" produces "better" IQ than my Canon 80D.

I really do enjoy every camera body I own :)

1DIV, 6D, 80D. One of these may be leaving in the spring.

Currently looking for a film body. Eyeing Elan 7NE and EOS-3.

So three digitals may be going to two. And acquiring one film body.

You do realise that for cameras, as with motorcycles and firearms, the correct number to own is N+1 where N= current number owned.

In a similar vane, back in the film days it was also true that there is no such thing as enough film, or ammo:).

Yes, I'm aware of that since I also own both motorcycles and guns, of which my wife also says I have too many. :)

I had to give up the motorcycles due to disability, falling off isn't much fun. I now also have to have a hand control system fitted to drive a car. Still unusually for the UK I do own firearms :). I'm separated, but my daughter still lives with me, and she shoots too, actually she is a better shot than I am, and I did alright in my day. She can cook too, so I guess she will make someone a decent wife someday.
