    Nikon D100, bought it new in 2003 for $2000 body only (yikes!). I still use it now.
    Canon A570is, a great P&S, great features, manual overrides, compact size, optical viewfinder, image stabilization
    Canon SD300, tiny P&S, got it free from a friend who upgraded

    and of course, my latest: Panasonic G1 w/14-45mm

    my digital list is MUCH shorter than my film camera list :)

    - Olympus mju 410, bought in 2005 (I still have the camera)
    - Canon EOS 20D, bought (used) in 2006 after selling all my film gear except a 28-105mm lens
    - Canon EOS 50D, last year
    - Panasonic GF1! (this year, after selling all my Canon gear except for the 430EX flash)

    I'm currently wanting for nothing as the GF1 fulfills my photographic needs very well.

    you seem to be a Canon "man" - but you never can tell as you probably had a secret desire for a Nikon

    My first digital was a Sony Mavica-CD500. Still have it cause it's kind of cool and weird.


    The next was the legendary Panasonic DMC-FZ50. I would still have it if my daughter was not so good at talking me out of stuff I have sitting on the shelf. I did make her promise to give it back if she ever buys a new camera.


    Now I have the G1. I imagine that's the only way I'll get the old Panasonic back is when I give her the G1.

    Well I don't think I've had too many:

    Canon A80 (still have it)
    Canon G6 (still have it)
    Pentax S4i (broke)
    Canon 30D (sold)
    Canon Rebel XSi (still have it)
    Canon 5D (too big and heavy - sold to buy my EP-2 instead)
    Ricoh GRDII (broke/sold replacement)
    Leica M8 (a keeper)

    and of course the Olympus PEN EP-2 which I feel is a keeper as well.

    Ooops, forgot my Sigma DP-1. That's a weird one, hate the handling but love the results. I'd love to see a Sigma m4/3 with a Foveon sensor.
