However, thats not the whole story...
I went off at a wee tangent.  I ended up having a late dabble with Minolta MF gear until about 5 years ago, so also had in there a x300, a x500, an SR-T101a and a an SR-T303 plus lots of manual minolta lenses.

pre 1982: simple cassette camera 24x24mm (Agfa?)+ Bali automatic 35mm viewfinder camera, Agfa Box
1982 AE1, stolen in 1984
1986 2x EF       (great camera, liked the concept of having two bodies with e.g. 50mm macro and 200mm tele)
1987 Rolleicord Vb
1995 New F1    (never really used due to stress during phd and the aftermath)
2001 G2           (re-entry to photography, digital world helped me to get feedback soon)
2005 20D         (with EF-S 60mm - the reason to switch to DSLR after experiments with G2 and diff. lenses)
2009 2x 40D     (still like the concept of having two cams with two lenses 10-22 + 70-200 or 40 + 100 macro ...)
2010 S95         (work horse for allday use in school (as teacher))
2012 600D       (for video, 40D always preferred for photography due to ergonomics and quality)
2014 2x 6D???    (will still like the concept of two bodies, but ... really expensive then)

Hoping to reuse some of the old FD lenses with a FF mirrorless camera (3.5 50mm macro, 2.5 135mm, 4.0 17mm, 1.4 50mm - nothing exeptional, but perhaps some interesting characteristics)

Best - Michael

I'll list my digital cameras because my list is only two.

Olympus 1.3 mp.  That was the worst camera I ever had. 
Fuji 3.1 mp finepix.  That was a solid performer.
Sony Cybershot 7.1 mp.  Good... but nothing special.  I got it for free, so I shouldn't complain.
Canon xs.  It was limited, butI loved that camera.  I used it for two years and sold it for what I originally paid.
Canon 60.  I lusted after the t2i, but it really didn't feel like an upgrade the way the 60d did. I like the body so much that I feel the 5 mkii isn'tthat much of an upgrade, so I'm holding out for the mk iii.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

XS->60D->5d Mkiii:18-55->24-105L:75-300->55-250->70-300->70-200 f4L USM->70-200 f/2.8L USM->70-200 f/2.8L IS Mkii:50 f/1.8->50 f/1.4->100L->85mm f/1.8 USM-> 8mm ->100L & 85L

1994:Mom's 1980ish Minolta
Throughout my childhood: Many cheap P&S film cameras(mostly Kodak)
College(1999) Kodak Advantix(Girlfriend in college bought it for me)
2007: First Digital Camera, Sony DSC? 8MP
2010:Canon 550D
2011: Used Canon 5D Classic
2012: Used Nikon D700

In School, I was really disappointed with the quality of digital, and basically boycotted it. It wasn't until around 2005 or 2006 when I was finally semi happy with digital results. This was when 200 bucks on a camera was a fortune to me. Now, I'm loving my Nikon D700!
Canon EOS-M, 22mm f2, 11-22mm f4-5.6
Canon 550D, Sigma 50mm f1.4
Nikon D700, Nikon 24-70mm f2.8, Tamron 17-35mm f2.8-4

Sporgon, my dad had a Pentax Spotmatic too, he really introduced me to photography and gave me the bug.

1981 Pentax K1000
1983 Contax 139Q with 50mm T* f/1.8
1987 Praktica BCX (purchase in East Berlin on an Army shopping excursion)

Huge interlude. When I got out of the Army in 1988 and came home from Germany, they lost only one box of mine, the one with my cameras, lenses, and all my photographs and negatives as high school year book editor and four years in the Army, traveling the US and Europe. I was so pissed and disgusted it took me 20+ years to get interested in photography again.

2009 Canon 5D; Canon S95
2013 Canon xD (5DII?  5DIII? 6D?)
5DIII, 60D, 24-105mm f/4 L, 85mm f/1.8, 70-200 f2.8L IS II, 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS USM, Sigma 50mm f/1.4, Sigma 35mm f/1.4A, Jupiter-9 85mm f/2
