K7 is my main, but i still use my K10 as the backup and occasionally my ds as well (a few film bodies as well but that's more play)

I use my K20D as my primary, but I do have a K10D also and do use it.

K10D and K-7 most of the time, don't know why I prefer the K10D over the K20D though...

My K100D and *istD get about equal usage, but the *istD sees most of my MF lens use.

My K10D rarely sees use since I got myself a K-5. What a difference!

What do you expect to learn from this poll? What is the reasoning for putting dissimilar cameras on the same line? The K200D and K20D have very few similarities; different sensors, different controls, different body, but they're on the same line. The K-x is more similar to the K-r than it is to the K-m. The K10D has almost nothing in common with the K100D, but they're on the same line.

A poll like this should have more choices and should allow people with multiple cameras to tick more than one box. I use a K20D and K-x, but I can't communicate that in the poll. My wife uses a K100D Super, which isn't even included in the poll.

I think the point of this poll might be to see how often users update their cameras. So in that case it is most interesting to know from which generation the camera is from. not in what segment the camera belongs to. Or how many camera the user have, only which one is the latest.

But the cameras is not sorted the most consistent way, as there are a few cameras from different generations on the same line.

That would be an understandable question, but the way the poll is set up doesn't elicit that answer. I would answer K20D to the poll, because it's my main camera, but my K-x is newer.

That makes some sense, but if the categories are contemporaries, they should be more like this:
