My cameras: Nikon F100 (film), D300, D1H. Pentax D, K10D (X2) my workhorse, (K-7 within the next 2 months), PZ-1P (film), Program Plus (film) and KX (film). Pentax 645N (MF film).

I only have 3 lenses for the Nikon system all bigger telephotos (f/1.8 to f/2.8) that I probably wouldn't use on a M4/3s system. I only bought into it because it was a cheaper route for me to go for long glass at the time, and I always loved the F100 so I picked it up for shigiggles. Amazing camera that was built to last and fit my ethos of small and durable. Too bad I'll never actually use it!! Still besides the F6 I think it was the finest weather sealed auto focus SLR ever made (the Pentax LX would be the finest non AF compact weather sealed film SLR ever made).

I really don't shoot much 35mm film anymore, so most of the above film cameras are merely collectibles (although I do try to put a roll or two through each of them a year). All my film is now run through the 645 system which still rivals a $8000 "full frame" digital for about $7500 less (that is a lot of film, especially when I process the B&W myself). Pentax and Nikon are actually quite similar provided you stay out of the menus. Since I shoot mostly manual in RAW this isn't a problem for me, set my stuff once and forget about it then it's just a matter of turning the control wheels and muscle memory for the AF button!
