I recently got rid of my Canon DSLR outfit and rationalised down to a Leica M 240, a bunch of M lenses (and a CV 75mm) and a DLUX 109.  I'm very happy with the choice I made.

Love my Q , 109 and Digilux 2, but also love my Fuji X-100S and T and XE-2 bodies with many Fuji lenses. Ordered the X Pro 2 with the 35/2 and should be getting it next week. Fuji appears to be copying Leica "look" while doing wonderful electronic and optics advances in a more aggressive pricing position. I hope Leica keeps going forward with AF and FF, their real future IMHO.

Linhof Super Technica 4x5 with 3 Planar lenses and several Schneider Kreuznach lenses, all coupled)

      6x7 and 6x9 backs, 220 film back

Linhof 6x17 first model,  Widelux 120

Hasselblad SWC; 203 with lenses between 40mm and 250 (latter is Superachomat)

      Various backs including 35mm back

Zeiss Super Ikontas A and C both latest models with coated Zeiss Jena Tessars

Rollei 35 fist Model, 

Fuji point and shoot

 

Most used are Fuji for snapshots and M 240 or SL. 

120 color in the Hasselblads, 35mm b&w in the classic M's, mainly M5

 

Too bad Kodachrome died. Before that my M's had much more use than now.

I currently shoot Leica M9 and Panasonic GX7. Occasionally also use my wife's V-Lux 30 or the camera in my iPod Touch.

 

Panasonics GF1 and TZ10 are still here somewhere, collecting dust, as is my old Voigtlander Vito CLR.

Started with a IIIf in 1968 and progressed through every M and R camera till the M7 and R7. With solid state I am happy with the M8.2 and the T.

In the studio, I use a combination of Fuji and Hasselblad.

 

On location I use Sony a7R-II cameras with Leica lenses

(My fav: Noctilux, 2nd fav: 80 Summilux).

The Leica bodies seem to become superseded too quickly for me to justify their higher cost.

They are nice, though...

Leica M film cameras and a just-acquired IIIa with Summar. I also have an M8 that I take in case I need a color photo. For work, I used Canon DSLRs. I sometimes also shoot Nikon film SLRs with a range of lenses from 15 to 500. I shoot two to six rolls of Tri-X a week in addition to the digital stuff for work.

Currently, I mainly use:

 

Leica M-P Typ 240 and Leica M9-P with Zeiss, Voigtländer and Leica M mount lenses, and a couple vintage LTM Nikkors.

Nikon D800E, with Zeiss, Voigtländer, and Nikkor lenses.

Ricoh GR Digital

Apple iPod Touch 6 for grab shots and shots while kayaking, as it has a waterproof case.

I do still have some film cameras that are seldom used now: a Leica M7, Leica M4-P, Nikon F3HP/T, Bronica RF 645, Speed Graphic 4x5, Ebony 4x5, and my grandfather's Burke & James 8x10" camera.

Interesting survey and very interesting results. I have just one comment: Canon and Nikon have star billing in the questions but there is no mention of Fuji. I suspect (and it would have been good to have confirmation) that Fuji X-System cameras are popular among Leica owners. The result could have been surprising.
