    Nikon D50 + 50mm or 18/200 (best glass, best pictures, needs a thorough cleaning and/or replacement every few years because Burning Man)
    Nikon AW100 (needs PASD! Come on, Nikon - there are dozens of custom photo settings, why not aperture and/or exposure???)
    iPhone 4 (takes mediocre pictures, but is always with me, and has some interesting effects/capabilities the others don't)

    50mm and 24mm get the most use.
    The F5 was a great camera, sometimes I wish I had not sold mine...

    For me:
    Nikon D300s
    AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED
    AF-S Zoom-NIKKOR 28-70mm f/2.8D IF-ED
    AF-S Zoom NIKKOR 80-200mm f/2.8D IF-ED

    I guess you had a nikon before the canon ?

    curious why nikon glass for video ? was it nice glass you had before or did you buy them when you had a canon for a reason ? again just curious

    one thing I do think is sweet is the new canon 600 flash if you have a MKIII or 6D pretty slick setup they have now
    for work I use phottix II now with my 580s I have some pocket wizards but they are the multi max I used with studio gear

    I carry a Canon 5d III, 7D, 17-40L, 24-105L, 70-300L, 600 EX-RT flash. All fits in a mid-sized bag and covers the basic ranges.

    Never really though about bringing my DSLR's... I just use my IPhone.

    Although, I am a Nikon shooter with crop and FF bodies with fast glass. I might have to bring something next time out. NOW, to find somewhere to go...

    On the trails I just take my Canon S-100.

    When weight doesn't matter, Pentax K-5 with whatever lens fits my plans.

    I've lightened the load considerably. I used to take my Nikon and all the heavy glass, but now they sit inside a Pelican case in the closet the majority of the time. For the past year, I've shot over 90% with my Olympus E-P3. The small size and low weight also makes flying and traveling with just a carry-on (backpack) so much more enjoyable. And because the Olympus E-P3 is so light, it's almost always hanging around my neck or shoulder ready for those grab shots.
