    I have a Nikon D60 with a 18-70mm. I just got into this hobby. I know more lenses are in my future.

    Canon T2i (550D) here with a small collection of lenses. My point-and-shoot is a Canon Powershot SX210 IS for what it's worth.

    PhaseOne 645 DF w/ a PhaseOne back, and a Lumix for travel. The Mamiya/P1 system rocks. 12+ stops dynamic range. It can see into dark tunnels and pull out an image where I only see black. Up to hour long exposures with very very little noise (I've only gone up to 18 minutes so far). Huge files. Crisp images. etc etc

    But good lord it is a heavy camera. I'm building up muscles in my arms that I haven't seen since I was a teenager.....

    Canon 50D, with a small suite of lenses... with a new macro being budgeted.

    Interesting... what exactly is this Mamiya 634 DF? I've googled it quickly, and was not able to find much info about this body.

    Sorry, mis-typed. It's also a PhaseOne body .... so PhaseOne 645 DF body. But PhaseOne and Mamiya (the companies) are linked so the bodies and data backs are interchangeable, and I think the P1 bodies are just Mamiya bodies re-branded. But I am using my old film Mamiya 645 lenses with the digital system.... it's complicated....

    Just noticed I also had the 634 instead of 645.... sigh. It must have been a good party....

    Both make fantastic equipment, both make some not so fantastic equipment, neither makes you a better photographer.

    nikon d90 for me.
    I think it would be more interesting as to why people went with what brands. For me I didn't like the canon's felt in my hand.

    Nikon d5000 with a 35mm f1.8.

    I was bottle fed on Nikon, Canons just seem too weird, but it's purely subjective. Tried a Canon 5D mark ii and it was pretty awesome.

    Ditto on that. I liked how the d90 felt in my hand vs. the t1i (at that time). I'm glad I chose Nikon.

    When I was in photo school, I snagged a really good deal on an old Mamiya 645 1000s system. It shot medium format film, in the 6cm x 4.5cm format. With an optional handgrip that had a strap that wrapped around the back of the hand, it was dream to shoot handheld. The system came with nearly 1/2 dozen lenses, plus a motor drive, extra film inserts, view finders, etc etc.

    (For those who are unfamiliar with the Mamiya 645 system - everything is modular. You can put anyone of at least 4 different viewfinders on it. The film backs (in the generation after the 1000s) were little light tight boxes. So you could load as many rolls of film as you had film backs. When you finished the roll you popped the film back off, and popped the next loaded one on.)

    Eventually I had the Polaroid film back, and added to the lenses including an 80mm shift lense. etc etc. The 110mm lense (about a 90mm lense in 35mm film camera terms) was as sharp as a Hassy lense. The 645 film format was, iirc, about 3x bigger than a 35mm film format.

    Eventually I needed to go digital, and I had this great collection of lenses and other funky stuff for the Mamiya 645 system. So I went with a digital system that allowed me to move over as much of my stuff as possible. The glass is not perfect for the sensor - but at least I've got something to work with while I upgrade the glass. Besides - it amuses me to use lenses that are now 20+ years old on a cutting edge digital camera.

    PhaseOne and Mamiya are working hand in hand, so the old Mamiya stuff works with the PhaseOne body.

    So - that is why I use what I use.

    Gripped Nikon D300, love Nikon, been using there gear for over 20yrs, but Canon makes some excellent bodies and lenses as well. Its no the camera that makes you a great photographer, but great glass sure helps.

    Canon 1D III and 40D for me. Only reason I use Canon is because that's what I grew up with and that's what I'm comfortable with. I'd like to try a Nikon some day but their equivalent lenses are crazy expensive!

    Recently upgraded from T1i to 5dMrkII with 70-200mm L f4, 50mm f1.8 and 28mm f1.8. Hoping to change one of the lenses to either 50mm 1.4 or 35mm.
