Jumped ship to mirrorless and have been playing around with olympus and panasonic for the past 5 years or so.
Currently considering getting back into Canon. There is a lot of nice used gear available for not to much money...

Only Gear left is my 50/1.4 which needs repair after a fall.

Updated: 20012-02-04

I took a break from SLR photography for a few years, but after my beautiful daughter was born i decided to opt for quality and speed again, but this time on a somewhat tighter budget:

Currently sporting a 1000D with a few of my old primes and the kit 18-55IS.

Canon EF 50mm F/1.4 USM
