Canon EOS
Minolta MC/MD
Nikon F (MF and AF)

And a bunch of P&S stuff

Not too many I guess:

Olympus OM
Pentax K
Minolta MD
Topcon (Exakta mount)

With only 4 different systems I have more then enough to choose from anyway.
For large format I use a Rolleiflex (1956) with Rolleinar 1 & 2 for close ups, if that counts as a different mount

too many, and growing!

My original SLR when in my early 20s was a Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic. So, even tho' I migrated to Nikon when I used to shoot semi-professionally many years ago, I've always had a soft spot for the Pentax line. I drooled over the 6 x 7 and 645 when they came out. So, here's my current arsenal:

67 body
TTL prism
35mm fisheye
90mm shutter lens
135mm macro
extension tubes

645 body
645N body
45mm f/2.8
80-160 zoom

Ftn bodies (2)
F3 (4 bodies)
F4 (2 bodies)
F5 (2 bodies)

16mm f/2.8
20mm f/3.5

200mm f/4.0
35~105 f/3.5-4.5 zoom
100-300 f/5.6 zoom
18-35 AF zoom
70-300 AF zoom
Tamron 80-400
Sigma 28-200
Sigma 28-70

I seem to own four film systems:

1. Pentax K
2. Nikonos manual focus
3. Mamiya 645 manual focus
4. Sinar 4x5 (with 6x9 back)

And I still don't get them all out as often as I should.

Oh, and there's two non-functional cameras that I use as props

a folding vest pocket autographic camera
a Praktica

surely that's OK? ... right?

After some though (I initially didn't conclude 1 camera makes a 'system') I'll respond thus:

Pentax M42
Pentax K
Nikon (F2 / DP-1)*
Olympus (XA)

* I had a KX on my desk at work. A co-worker inquired about it and suggested I try a Nikon.

Start with the king of mechanical Nikons.

I like to organize it by camera type!

SLR: Pentax MX
Rangefinder: Voigtlander Vitessa
TLR: Yashica 635

Suppose next up will be some larger medium format or a view camera :-)
