I've recently acquired a Sony NEX-6 because I wanted to get a good (APS-C) compact system camera and Canon isn't quite there, yet. The last few years I've been pretty loyal to Canon, until now.

What other camera brand do you actively use, other than Canon? If you like, please specify which model and why.

Olympus for their Tough series, they're a little more professional looking than Canon's option. depending on where the XZ series goes for Olympus versus where the G series goes for Canon, I may switch to an XZ cam as well.

Yes, I noticed that was conspicuously absent from the list, although I'm pretty sure it is the best selling camera in the world.

Sony RX-100 for portable quality. I actually used it at 2 weddings last year. One when I was mother of the bride and didn't want to carry a dslr while participating in the wedding. The 2nd time I was hired by a videographer to tape a wedding. He only provided me with one camera, despite my request for a backup. The ceremony was very long (Greek Orthodox) and the hard drive filled up. I pulled out the RX-100 in desperation. Quality was sufficient to satisfy the videographer and client :-)

Sony RX100 - highly impressive IQ for such a tiny package.  Just wish the lens was a bit wider and had sharper corners...
Current Kit: Some cameras and a bunch of lenses, maybe even a tripod or two

Olympus OM series film cameras. Fuji X-100s to be added in the near future.

I have a Sony RX100 for constant carry and NEX 5n for weekend travel.  Both provide excellent IQ and compliment my 5D III.

I recently bought a Sony Nex 5N for £400 with the twin lens system was a bargain and a great lightweight all round camera for the days when I dont want to carry my 5DMKIII.

I also use a Bronica ETRSI on the odd occasion.
