Of course the leica M9 wins hands down, however, I'm afraid the price tag takes it out of the picture (pun intended) LOL

Being a Canon shooter, I would have to go with the T31, however, I use the 7D. If I were looking for a small compact I would have to go with the fugifilm X10 if restricted to this list. Otherwise my favorite compact would be the Canon G12 which I do own, or the newer G1X.

Ahh the Pentax Q is a must-have, I must say! It's not as bulky as an actual DSLR, which makes it very handy! Just perfect!
The Leica M9 or the Canon Rebel T3i

Leica 4 sure. Thought for the Nikon D800 would be in there.

Try the Fuji X10. Photos are exquisite because of the lens, sensor and the change in how pixels are recorded (diagnol not rectangular). Tried two of the others and there was no comparison.

Definitely the film camera from Lomography.
