So how many do you have?

Waaaaay to much time on my hands. I was thinking about all
the SLR's I've had over the years, and an wondering how I
compare with you guys

1st. Fujica ST301. From the late 70s
2nd. Nikon FM
3rd. Nikon FE w/MD11 motor drive
4th. Nikkormat Ftn. Still have. A classic collectable
5th. Pentax PZ1
6th. PZ1p. Sold the Nikons
7th. 1st D's
8th. K100. Gave away the PZ1s to the guy who
babysits the house & dogs while we're gone
9th. K-x
10th. K-5

So how do I stack up? Below average
Average
Total nutcase who can't stop

I'll play. I expect I'll fall into the lower middle of the pack.

1st camera was not an SLR, but a Fujica rangefinder from the mid 1950s.
Also, toss a Crown Graphic, a Burke & James 4x5 and a Tachihara 4x5 onto the list if non SLRs count.

1) Pentax Spotmatic II
2) Olympus OM-1
3) Nikon F2s
4) Nikon F
5) Bronica ETRs
6) Nikon FM2
7) Nikon F3hp
8) Nikon FE
9) Nikkormat EL
10) Pentax LX
11) Pentax K1000
12) Pentax K1000
13) Pentax 6x7
14) Pentax KM
15) Pentax MZ-5
16) Pentax MX
17) Pentax LX
18) Pentax LX
19) Pentax Program Plus
20) Pentax Super Program
21) Pentax MX
22) Nikon F2s
23) Pentax ME Super
24) Pentax ME Super
25) Pentax *istD
26) Pentax K10
27) Pentax K20
28) Pentax K7
29) Pentax K5
30) Pentax SP1000 (I think. It's a screw mount, anyway).

Whee!!! I made it to 30!!!
Thanks for the trip.

Spottie #1
Fuji S7000 (gone)
SPIIx2 1 pristine Ashai, 1 Honeywell in not so good condition.
Yashica FX2
Yashica FX3 (Gone, gifted elsewhere.)
Yashica FR1
P3
Vivitar K mount (junked)
ME Super
Minolta SG1 (junked)
Sears KSx2 (both junked)
Canon AE1 (traded)
*ist DSLR

The SP, ME the P3, and maybe the FX2 are likely going to someone who can rehab them to specs so other folks can use them soon. Ultimately I want to have my Ashai SPII, a K1000 SE maybe, my FRI, my *ist and a Kx, down the road a K-7 or a K-5 once I go pro. Even half a dozen cameras feels like excess to me. I'm not much of a hoarder type, at least when it comes to cameras.

Lessee, K200D, 6 Ricohs, 3 Spotmatics, 2 Chinon, 2 ME Supers, 2 Super Programs, 1 Program Plus, 1 P30t, 1 K1000, 1 MX, 2 Minoltas, 1 Olympus, 3 Prakticas, 1 Konica. 27 SLRs? Oops.

1st and only: K20D.

I think I'll save up and wait for the next model to knock the K-5 off it's pedestal - hopefully it'll be superb.
