4 in a bag

Let's try a different approach to the cameras.

Suppose you have the Kx, K20, K10 and K7 in your bag.-- big bag-

When, under what circumsatancess would you use each/ choose one over the others

With four cameras in a bag, I don't think I'd have the energy to take pictures.

K-x for extreme lowlight, K-7 for things that need extreme AF (I'd probably buy a Canonikon if I really need that though...).

K10 and K20 is sort of redundant if you have these two, as there's no base that the K-x / K-7 combo can't cover that the K10/K20 can (Well, maybe long exposures without DFS, K10d is cheap enough to keep if you're really into that stuff).

no problem

I would merely instruct my bearer, Ansel, to hand me the correct camera fitted with the correct lens for the precise situation. When not otherwise occupied, Ansel can also be cranking a hand generator to keep batteries charged, offloading the latest pictures to my remote server via the satellite phone he's carrying, mixing vodka martinis (shaken, not stirred) to keep me at the proper level of inspiration, and dealing with model releases and other paperwork.

I can just imagine this...

Ansel, look at how interesting the clouds are above those hills. Hand me the K7 with the DA 21mm if you'd please.

Hmmm... Are you sure you don't want the IR modified K10D with the DA 31mm for a slightly tighter composition?

By Joe, Ansel. I think you're right. Good man Ansel, good man....

A K-7 and K-X would really fulfill every need imaginable. The K-7 for most use and the K-X for low light. I don't think I would have the strength to carry any lenses with 4.

K10D - Long exposures, star trails.
Kx - High ISO shots under artificial light
K7 - Everything else

K20D - Being in between the K10D and K7, there isn't anything it does that the other two don't.

I would shoot with the k-x, keep the others in the bag, and use it to beat people who made fun of me using a pink camera.

Definitely the K-x for high ISO (say 800+), the K-7 for everything else.

I do personally find the K20D and K10D more comfortable but in terms of photography
the K-7 is almost a perfect superset of the K20D and K10D. Actually, IIRC the K20D has
the bracketing options separate from the drive mode which makes it faster to turn on
and off, so if I was doing a lot of bracketing with test shots in between the K20D and
K10D would be a bit faster.

Only fresh Tule Lake horseradish will do. I think the Point Reyes Creamery used to produce a white cheddar suffused with that. And I recommend Eco-Zin (an incredible bargain) from Michael Topolos' Russian River Vineyards on the south side of Forestville, CA, although any Topolos Zin will thoroughly wet your whistle. Then stroll along the shore of Bodgea Bay, snapping the waterfront scene. You could do worse, much worse.
