Shooting A- and E-mount (A99II, A7) and will likely for a while, at least as long as my kids are participating in competitive sports. With the low cost/high quality zoom options and the very capable A99II, A-mount delivers a lot of bang for the buck. The A7 is more convenient for travel, people and video.

Most used A-mount lenses: Min 80-200 HS G, Sony 70-300&70-400 G SSM.
Most used E-mount lenses: CZ 16-35/4&24-70/4

My A-mount A99ii for shooting 24x36, still handles well and produces the images I want, but since I injured my arm last year, it's less comfortable for long expeditions. I used my A77ii this week for the first time since 🤔. Maybe I should sell it.

My E-mount A6600 for shooting APS-C with a mix of 24x36 and APS-C lenses. I have an LAEA3, but I now have enough native E-mount lenses now that it's not currently in use. Maybe needed if I bought an A7/9 body, but although I'd succumb if disaster struck and my A99ii and A-mount lenses disappeared (again), I can't see myself swapping to E-mount otherwise.

Leica is mostly for street.
For sale - A99II, grip, and various lenses

hey y'all ... the 7th option needed a vote
Walk out if it doesn't feel right
I can tell you're only lying
If you've got something better tonight
Then don't mess up my mind with your crying

A-mount used to be my main system. I started with a Dynax 5 (with data back, don‘t kno why I had to have this, I don‘t think I ever used it). Then a100, a900 and a700, but I wasn‘t really fond of the APS-C sensor size any more, so used it rarely.
Then I bought into micro 4/3 with an Olympus em5, which was quickly followed by a Panasonic GH3 (way better ergonomics, in my opinion) and a GH4, which is the camera I‘m taking most pictures with, at the moment. Was/am considering a Panasonic S5 for the ultimate image quality (I don‘t really need more than 24MP) and use of old glass, but not yet sure that I will use it as much as I should.
I am considering the Zenza Bronica S2A (medium format camera from the late 60s / early 70s) as my main camera, today, in the sense that it is the camera that I lug around the most often when going out to take pictures. Every now and then I actually hit the shutter release and enjoy that majestic (some say ear-deafening, earth shattering, you name it...) „thump“ that leaves no doubt that I‘ve just taken a picture. Honestly, if I had to part with all my cameras but a single one, this would be the one to keep. The crazy thing is that I haven’t developed many films yet but I have a pile of exposed film waiting to be developed. I guess it currently is more about enjoying the picture taking process (and that beautiful, but heavy beast) than the pictures themselves.
All of this said, I‘m considering to participate in this year‘s edition of the April Foolishness Challenge, so there could be some A-mount action due pretty soon.
