K-50 and K-3, the DA Limiteds, other DA lenses
Almost every Pentax K film body with dozens of lenses, accessories, and several flashes
Nikon D70 full-spectrum for infrared with several DX lenses
Nikon F & FM with several AI and Pre-AI lenses and flashes
Pentax 645 with several lenses and flash
Mamiya C2 & C22 with most of the lenses and some accessories
Kodak Medalist II with multiple Series VI accessories & filters
Polaroid Automatic 100 Land Camera with multiple attachments and synchronized electronic flash.
The other two-dozen aren't system cameras. Most of them are stand-alone 120/620 cameras with flashbulb units.

To add more fun, lets remark, if you are shooting with your gear.
Good idea.

K-5 yep, for just about everything, especially outdoors these days (it's getting cold and wet, so WR is the order of the day).

P3 , P30T - these have seen quite a lot of use since I reactivated the P3 in June, but with the colder, wetter weather they're seeing less outdoor time now. The P3 is reliable in auto mode with a flash for indoor shots; ditto the 30T but that's in for repair ATM.

ME - I haven't got the first film back from this one yet, but it's fun to use and I'm waiting for the next dry, sunny weekend to take it for a good run. Until then, I'm trying it out with an old Pentax flash and seeing how that goes.

Spotmatics - The Honeywell has had two films through it, and will need +1EV of exposure correction always (i.e. set the ISO one stop slow) if I use the meter - however, it's great in bright light. The Asahi currently has its first film in on box settings and relying on the meter, and we'll see how that one runs.

XR-1 - First roll of film (relying on meter) is currently in process, awaiting return.

K3/K50 shooting daily usually with the K3.
K1000 - never used. PZ-1 shelf queen for a decade.
Canon AE-1 - mom's old camera. Sitting alone waiting for love.
Nikkormat FT-3 - my first Nikon - shelf status occasionally use the 50mm lens on the digital rig for macro reversed just to say I did...

PZ-1 may get a chance to shine again soon - thinking of playing with it.

Pentax KM - I shoot it occasionally.
Zenit M42 - never shooted it

Well then, to revise my post:
  1. Canon FD: AE-1: occasionally. FTb: less occasionally. (I actually like the FTb more than the AE-1, but I find the AE-1 more useful.)
  2. Pentax K: Well, when my K2 isn't in the shop I do...
  3. M42: I've only run one roll through this camera [GAF L-17]. So not really.
  4. Contax/Kiev RF: Kiev-4A: incessantly. One day I'll get the parallax correction right.
  5. Pentax 67: my most used MF camera, so yes.

If you do not count large format as all of them are really one system nor count cameras with fixed lenses I have

1) Pentax K mount film and digital 2 bodies of each and 7 or 8 lenses
2) Pentax A110 2 bodies 3 lenses
3) Hasselblad V system 4 lenses
4) Diana F+ 5 lenses and 3 bodies (or I don't own any of them if you listen to my wife)
5) Holga Pan 35 that has a pinhole and a wide angle lens

#3 is my favourite and #1 the most used

Zeiss Super Ikonta II, about 1949 vintage, my Dad's camera, recently serviced
Edixamat Kadett, M42 screw lens, my first SLR 50 yrs ago - 3 lenses - in retirement now. Somewhere there is a Weston light meter.
ME Super and ME with 6 lenses and 280T flash (still used a lot on my K3-II)
-occasionally used. Also have the Pentax ME Super Book of Photography.
MZ-7 with an FAJ lens and an F lens - still in use.

I wish I could use them all more often. Haven't shot slides for at least 15 years ... pity.

Pentax K - 7 bodies (I think) and around a dozen lenses
Pentax 67 - 5 lenses
Leica LTM - 4 lenses (all Russian except 1 CV)
also have a Pentacon Six and Kiev (contax) with just one lens each, as well as several folders and a couple compact built-in lens cameras.

Just two at the moment:

- Leica M: one body (M2) and 28mm, 35mm, 50mm and 90mm primes.
- Pentax K: one body (MX). I've used to have six K-mount primes between 24mm - 200mm, but have since whittled it down to just a M50/f1.4.

This is making me think it might be time to start rebuilding the collection though

Only one system for me: Pentax K mount. ME, ME Super (x2), MX, K1000 (x4), KX, K2 bodies, with primes from 28mm to 200mm, and a couple of zooms. Most of the bodies came as a package deal with lenses I wanted. The KX and K2 see the most action, and one of the K1000s gets used quite a bit.

I'm not sure if I'm too cheap or too lazy to invest in something different.
