I'm posting this because I need some sort of venue to help sort my ideas regarding this. For the last two years, I've been using the beautiful Mamiya 7 II with the 43mm, 80mm and 150mm lenses. It's done everything I've wanted it to: -Fantastic, unbelievably good lenses -Small and compact, super easy to travel -Built in meter -Has never once failed me So in a lot of ways, I am very happy with it. That said, I've never loved the camera. I once owned the Mamiya Press system and I loved it and correspondingly, I took better photographs. Recently, I've been playing with 4x5 and a 6x17 camera, and now thinking of a 8x10 and working on wet plate. Maybe buy an old Super Ikonta 6x9 to keep with the MF world. Is something wrong? I feel like I searched out the best equipment for my travels to get the best possible negs, but I feel like I'm lacking some sort of quality that is hard to put my finger on. Anyways, just needed some feedback from other photographers on similar experiences and maybe turn me back in the right direction.
