I have recently upgraded to an A99ii, which rapidly became my favourite, most used and hence my prime choice. However, I still use my A77 a lot when the crop factor is useful or I want to use my APS lenses. My A58 also get a fair bit of use with a hyperzoom as my go to holiday snapshot camera. However, my A900 gets little use these days - but it is, in many ways my main backup to the A99ii - I guess the idea of a backup is that it only gets used in an emergency.

So I voted for all three

I've kept my A68 after upgrading to the A7ii, so technically it's my backup camera.

Still shooting with A700 x 2 supplemented with an RX100II. I have an A200 which gets used as well, but in its own right, not as a backup. It takes magnificent images with Minolta lenses, no idea why, it just does.

Nah, too boring

Look how well my 14 year old KM5D still performs
