The K3 is my favourite body ... most of the time. But the K200 still is just a lot of fun to use.
Favourite lens: the FA 1.8/77 ltd.

Pentax Q10 with 01 prime.

Well I do enjoy it because it is so small, yet gives me good-enough image quality in low light for personal use.

When it comes to my DSLR though... probably K-3 and DA 70 Ltd. Don't use that lens often since I also have the 50-135. In fact it hasn't come out of storage in quite a while. But it's so small and light and just snaps into focus, plus the build quality is amazing... so yeah, I do enjoy it.

Definitely my k3 with either the 35 or 70 prime....I guess because that's all the gear I have. Nothing like primes!

I'll vote for something like K-01 and Pentax DFA 100mm macro. Or Samyang 14mm for the UWA perspective. Or DA 35mm f2.4 as the middle of the road everyday prime.
Then again, I don't exactly have a budget to test out a lot of gear, so this "favourite" comes from a very limited pool of gear
