I broke down and bought one! It was in decent condition, and for the price that it was selling for, I really couldn't pass it up. It doesn't help that two good friends of mine are on their own little film safari in northern California, with their medium and large format setups. I know, this is more of a studio camera, but I feel that for the things that I would be using medium format for, I wouldn't mind trekking with it. At first I was unsure about how to go about learning it, but I feel that I've now exhaustively gone through and understand everything on the camera. It close enough to a 4x5 that I feel alright (it's just easier to set up!) I am in the process of selling off my OM-1 system to fund it. I still shot film through it often enough, but digital has been enough more convenient that I usually just grab the DSLR with a modern-design zoom. I didn't know much about medium format when I went to buy it, so I was kind of overwhelmed, but now that I've really sat down with it, it seems that I have all RB lenses. Is the shutter still electronically actuated, even if I am using these mechanical Sekors instead of the Sekor Z's? Would I see any improvement in my photos if I sold off my current lenses (90mm and 180mm Sekor C's) and re-invested in Sekor Z glass? If the only benefit is adjusting the camera's dial, instead of the lens' dial, then I really don't care. Does anyone here subcontract themselves to make some money out of their hobby? I was thinking about it when playing with this camera. I mean, I'm already invested in the equipment. In addition to it being my hobby, I've taken film classes and worked for a newspaper in college. I walk around so often and see that the "photographer" at events is some bozo who doesn't understand even the basics of photography. They're shooting with some intro-level digital SLR and $200 plastic lens from Wal-mart. So, often, I've thought to myself, "I can do better than this!" In fact, a few years ago, being known as "the photographer" in my circle, I was asked if I would shoot a friend's wedding. I told him that I would be willing to, but that my equipment wouldn't give him the quality that he deserved. Fast forward to the wedding, and sure enough, some woman is shooting the wedding with a digital camera, mid-grade flash attached to a bracket, and a superzoom consumer lens! I couldn't believe it.
