    Well I have little choice, my Ricoh GX100 is always with me.Other than this I have my Oly C5050z.Depending on my mood I will take out the Oly some days.

    all the best

    I'm in love with my gf1 and 45mm panleica macro lens. Beautiful shots with that lens.
    For walkaround I use the canon sd3500. I got it because it is pink and has on-screen settings, I know, but it does take good pictures, just no bokeh!

    One camera that does it all for me - ultimate go-to tool is the D700+24-70mm f2.8 AF-S.

    For small sensor camera's, without a doubt, the GH1

    For compact P&S - DP-2s fits the bill nicely.

    I'm still pleasantly surprised at how good my Canon s90 turned out. It goes with me everywhere.

    Lately, my goto Camera has changed a bit.
    I adore my E-PL1 but am still getting used to carrying it (anyone know of an everyready type case for it?).
    I love the speed and IQ.
    But mostly I am using the F70EXR, tiny light, quiet and has much the same zoom range as my S6000fd.
    It has become the Pocket version of that Fuji.
    Oh and i love the camera on my HTC HD2 phone too
    Need a hiptser plug in for that

    I keep coming back to my GX100 for my eBay pics and just plain casual shooting.

    Impressive. GX100 does a much better job than GRDII when it comes to shooting in color I think.

    I used to carry a Mamiya 7II with 65mm lens but recently switched to
    Leica X1 which is now with me all the time. Easier to get rid of trash

    Re: Whats your "Go To" Camera? In any sensor size that is...

    I haven't got a 'go to' camera.
    I always have an M9 with me, and something else as well, either a d-lux4, or an Olympus pen.
    Trouble is that the d-lux4 doesn't produce good enough quality files, and the zoom lens on the Olympus pen isn't either good enough or wide enough. (also goes for the Sony Nex and the Panasonic).

    Changing lenses on a 'go to' camera is a nono, so I want one with a 24 - something lens and decent IQ, I still mourn the passing of my lovely 12-60 Olympus zoom.

    Just this guy you know

    I wonder whether there will be a 4/3 to Sony Nex converter so that we can use the 4/3 lenses on something other than m4/3s?

    I have tried 4/3 and a Canon 450D (Xsi), but always returned to my beloved 5D, so that is all I own now. I even bring it cross country skiing.

    If someone would make a smaller camera with FF sensor, 35/1.4 or 35/1.8 lens, viewfinder and AF, for a price that I can afford (no higher than a 5DII for example) I'd jump on it.

    Skiing, my 'go to' camera is definitely the M9 - usually with a 35 lens on it as well, but it only fulfills your ff and smaller criteria, it falls down on price and AF!

    Maybe it's because I have never tried MF that I'm worried about it. I should get a cheap MF lens for 5D and try it some time. The price is harder to do something about... If I'm patient maybe eventually there'll be something like what I want.

    Re: Whats your "Go To" Camera? In any sensor size that is...

    I like taking my FF camera
    Olympus XA loaded with ISO 200 or 400 Color Film
    The G1 I may take now and again...but first, I will need to get that hard to find Olympus 17mm f/2.8 m/43 first.

    I got my 17mm Zuiko for the PEN off Amazon.
    http://www.amazon.com/Olympus-17mm-f...7925559&sr=8-1

    (shot with my F200EXR Fuji, which vies with the F70, better IQ, less Zoom)
    It is far far better than its reputation would one believe

    Looks good on your D-Pen.

    Just ordered one from Adorama.. Back-ordered... but it is at $230.00 right now... I needed to penny pinch for this one. So, I get the G1 next week, and the lens ???? Soon I hope.

    My "go to" camera would be my Sony R1. Great lens/sensor combo in a compact package.

    Works great for roadtrips etc.

    ....and my M9 (which Ive had since February) has sent everything else to the cupboard (maybe ive made 20 exposures in all with my D-Lux 4 since I got the M9, and none with the G1).

    Wow, this thread has been going for a long time! And I've been away from getDPI for a long time, too. Hoping to have more time for photography soon, and my "go to" camera is now going to be my ONLY camera for the foreseeable future. I got rid of every other camera I own over the last six months, even sold off my old Minolta film SLR. Bought myself the new Ricoh GXR p10 kit with the EVF. Just started testing it a bit and am very happy with it so far. Since I rarely print beyond 8"x10," I really don't mind having just a small sensor cam. I am determined to make the most of it! (Famous last words, lol)

    Welcome back Joan. I do not know whether to be sorry or glad for your 'focus' on one piece of gear...such would likely do me a world of good rather than frittering away my time learning each new camera (that was the point of this post, BTW, the goto camera would be the one you would keep if forced down to one). Nowadays for me it would likely be my E-PL1...

    Keeps camera.... ?

    I would sign a pact with the devil and keep both the Oly C5050z and the GX100! But if he wasnt willing to accept my soul I would have to go for the GX100.

    Thanks, Lily! :-) I think that my schizophrenic buying and selling of cameras over the last couple of years has probably equally impeded and helped my growth as a photographer. I've learned quite a bit about how digital cameras work, and a fair amount about processing, but I don't know if I have learned to "see" the shot any better than before ... so much time spent learning the cameras and not enough spent on looking for the best angle or the most interesting composition. Hoping that having this one little "jack of all trades" camera will get me thinking differently and more creatively about what I'm seeing. We'll see .... now if it just wasn't so darned HOT outside, I might be motivated more to get out there and play with it!

    Keith, was just about to go comment on your thread, will try to contribute some shots to it soon as well.
    Regards,
    Joan

    So nicely put, Joan. I couldn't have said it better. I guess most of us pass through a period of frantic buying of equipment and software, but those of us fortunate to 'see' that these are just means, not the ends end up in the streets with their favorite cameras.

    Hi Osman, thanks. Yes, we all must learn the rudiments of using our tools first and then hopefully go on to make them work to comunicate our own vision. It took me a very long time to tame my brushes and pigments so that I could make watercolors work for me rather than fighting with them, so I think it is a similar learning process that I am going through with photography. Finally feel like I am about to make the jump into controlling the medium rather than it controlling me.
    Regards,
    Joan

    It would have to be my D2. Here is a shot of the Duluth entry to the Duluth/Superior harbor on a hot and hazy summer day.

    Wow interesting thread, so many less people are carrying m4/3 that I thought and relying more on normal P&S like Ricoh, Fuji
