    Cameras are not allowed on site where I work.

    However we can now use camera enabled phones so I will check with legal to see if I can.

    I carry two bodies and three lenses everywhere I go. One of the wonderful size/weight (or lack thereof) benefits of shooting M4/3!

    Yes, this is why I bought a PEN. The two lenses that go with me everywhere are the Zuiko 50mm/1.4 and the Zeiss 135mm/2.8 an EC-14 teleconverter, so really I carry a 50mm/1.4, 70mm/2, 135mm/2.8, and 200mm/4.

    Yes, the GF1 with the 14 ana 20. Prior to entering the small world of ยต4/3 I would haul around a FF Canon everywhere.

    Yes, I almost never leave the house without the E-PL2 and 20 1.7. I could never say that about my DSLR.

    Generally speaking I don't take "grab" shots but this doesn't alter the fact that in the past 10 years I have never left the house without a camera.

    Panasonic LX-5 all the time, that's the beauty of having to carry a purse, all other times my GH2 comes along too.

    Does anyone actually take the camera with them most days if it's not work related?

    I don't work as a photographer, my job is being a mom, driver, chef, activity organizer, care giver, personal assistant and like I like to call myself CEO of my household....and I just like to take pictures.

    I always have my Canon S90 in my brief bag. If my mood suits me and I think I have opportunities to use the E-P3, I that that along with my 12/20/45 native lenses. Since I work all day in the office, the occasion is infrequent.

    My workplace does not allow cameras, but I have been bringing my PEN and leaving it in my truck. Unfortunately, it is getting cold here and so I'm no longer bringing it with me. I'm afraid to leave it in the truck when the temperature will be below freezing for a long time.

    Yup, I'm not a photogapher, per se, by trade but my bag is always with me. I do sometimes take photos at work (with MTF kit) for documentation purposes.

    First bag: E-P1, Oly 40-150, 17mm F2.8, Nikon 100mm F2.8 Vivitar 3700 + Cactus v2 radio triggers. Usually there is a tripod nearby.

    Second bag: Not always with me. Sigma 28-70mm (for nostalgia), Sigma 70-300mm, Light stand+umbrella, Yongnuo 560. Second wobbly tripod used as light stand.

    In the cabinet as needed: Nokton 25mm F0.95, Navitar 17, 25 & 50mm F0.95 c-mounts, Nikon 28mm F2.8, Nikon 50mm F1.2

    At home for the better half E-P1+Panny 14-45mm. Several telescopes for astro hobby.

    Not all the time. But when I do, it's typically the GF2 + 20/1.7 or 14/2.5. Or the Fuji X100. Although I have a Canon S90, it doesn't get used much.
