    Started with the camera that probably revolutionised DSLR's ownership, mainly because of the price
    300D....then moved on to the
    20D......natural progression to the
    50D....and my first full frame camera the classic
    5D... before I jumped ship to mirrorless

    I'm cheap so besides the 400D which I bought new, both the others were bought second hand many years after they were first released. I still have both the 40D and 7D and use them semi-regularly: they still perform well for the majority of what the latest kit can achieve.

    300D then 20D and while I had that I bought a 10D for my GF but she was too frightened of dropping it to use it.

    After over seven years with the 20D I moved to a 5D. I then bought Panasonic MFT and for a while I had both DSLR and MFT CSC but when the Sony A7 came out my 5D's days were numbered and once I was sure about mirrorless and the A7 in particular the 5D and all of my Canon kit was sold.

    Nearly bought a D60 (IIRC - it was the first DSLR that was vaguely affordable!) but found it too uncomfortable to hold so I waited for an affordable Nikon body and got a D70 instead.

    I have a Canon compact - the only underwater camera I've owned that's stayed waterproof - so far!

    I had an AE1p on long term loan in the 80s, but I was getting ‘serious’ so I bought a Bronica instead of a new 35mm camera. From that point on I was in love with the T90 but knew it wasn’t to be.

    Fast forward to 1999 ish and I bought an EOS300, shortly followed by an EOS30 with eye AF.
    Over the next couple of years I bought and sold loads of EOS gear I couldn’t list it if I tried.
    Then Digital:
    300d
    20d (x2) (still have one)
    40d (still have)
    7d (x2) (still have one)
    6d (x2) (still have)
    M5 (still have)

    Along the way I’ve also picked up an EOS5 film camera. I am supposed to be getting rid of the 20 & 40 to part fund the M5, but currently I have 7 eos cameras.

    I stuck with 35mm (Praktica - it was all I could afford) well into the digital age. Then my partner and I bought a 350D between us which was (and still is) dedicated to astrophotography and subsequently had the sensor filter mod.. At the time it was reckoned very good for astro but I can't remember why. It remains a very good camera for astro because it's so easy to use the back buttons (image review etc) by feel, and I can change the battery and CF card while it's on the scope without moving anything. . Then several years later my partner bought me the 550D as a Christmas present (well, he bought half of it. I stumped up the rest) which I still have. I keep being tempted by the 800D for wildlife as it has a faster burst rate (I can't manage a heavier camera) but I haven't done it as I question how much of an improvement it would be except for birds in flight, which I very rarely do as I can't hold the big lens up...............

    had quite a few over the years
    300d
    350d
    450d
    20d
    40d
    50d
    5d
    5d mk2
    1dx
    1dx mk2

    bodies i still have
    20d
    40d
    450d
    1dx mk2

    some of them were bought in the year of release and some bought second hand for various reasons

    in the early days i wen't a bit daft with new releases the first was the 300d which put me on the path of digital SLR'S, the shutter packed in just out of warranty and was replaced with the 350d
    i bought the 450d at launch which seemed to promise wonderful things on paper but unfortunately failed to deliver in real use. i sold it very shortly afterwards and bought the 40d
    shortly after the purchase of the 40d the 50d was released and for whatever reason GAS kicked in and i ended up jumping in the car and travelling ( 200 miles ) down to bristol cameras to get one, it was the closest outlet that had one in stock
    in hindsight i should of got the 40d and have done with it, the 450d was disappointing and there wasn't enough difference between the 40 and 50d to really warrant the purchase of the 50d but we live n learn i suppose

    i started buying second hand after that :)

    the 450d and 20d i have now was bought second hand for the siblings to use which they do every now and again
    the 40d sits in a drawer with a broken shutter with a very low shutter count and immaculate condition
    i can't bring myself to throw it away and i could buy another cheaper than a replacement shutter so it just sits there

    i moved on to full frame after that which eventually brought me to the 1dx mk2 which i will be using for the foreseeable future

    I know it says digital, but after a Zenit E I bought a AE-1, followed another (B+W & colour film) then a third after writing the original one off, but finding it still worked although very battered! Then an EOS3.
    Digital dawned with a D30, then two EOS1D bodies. After giving up football photography I downsized to a 550D, then up to a 7Dmkii.
    Not a lot of cameras for 40years of Canon ownership!

    The only comment about all this is that I stopped adding to my film kit soon after I got my T-90 but digital has been an escalator the top of which I have hopefully reached as I've spent far too much money

    I was sorely tempted to buy one of those, just to see what it was like manually focusing EF lenses with a proper split screen viewfinder, but eventually decided I had better options with the FD gear I already had

    Just remembered I also picked up an EOS 650 along the way; it came with an EF 50mm f1.8 Mk 1 for a tenner at a car boot sale
