I only have 1. Looks like I'm now in the minority as 40% of responses say "2 units".

Looks like it's time to pick up that K-5 i've been wanting. Doh!

Kx and K5 for me! Looks like I am in the majority on my vote. How did that happen?

*ist D

(plus 2 m4/3: e-p1 and GF2)

1 1/2 (K10d and K-01)

I have been contemplating selling of my m4/3 gear and going that route.

Edit: I added a K-5 in May (about a month after this post), but a white K-30 for use outside in the hot sun and high UV is worth contemplation.

I've added a 645D, K-01 (OK, not dslr) and a 4/3 Olympus.
Will see what Pentax comes out with later this year before deciding on a K-30.

3 at the moment, K-5, K-7 and *ist D. I hope to add K10D Grand Prix edition as I see K10D as Pentax "break through" camera. Kind of "K-5 of it's time". First two get most of the use, *ist D I have used last maybe... 2-3 years ago?

Regular batteries won't work. Looking into super batteries oolooma or something. K100d has a poor batteries function

Looks like Pentaxians do own a lot of cameras at the same time.

68% owns 2+ DLSRs

Canon 20D, 5DMKII, Pentax K5. The 20D doesn't get much usage, though I've been letting my much younger brother shoot with it to try to interest him in photography. Like we need another member of the family with CBA.

I use my K5 most of the time. I converted my K10 to IR and use that occasionally. I keep my K20D and the kit lens for use in slightly hazardous situations.

Currently I just have my one K-5. I hope to get another DSLR so my wife will have one to shoot with and to have for backup.

Off topic: I want a film body but haven't decided on which Pentax SLR to get. I like the build, size, and look of the manual focus bodies like the MX, ME, and LX (of course) but would really like to have AF. My two FA Limiteds won't stop begging me to use their full image circle!
