    That's the eternal problem with me... I have one and only used it once IIRC, so why would I keep it? But as soon as somebody asks to buy it, I become possesive and can't bring myself to sell it. .... I think I need a shrink :smile:. You are right though: it IS sexy!

    Well, I'll make a confession too, I bought the Mamiya 7 II over the Mamiya 7 because it was available in Black, the multiple exposure button was nice, but ultimately it was the black that got me. HOWEVER I actually prefer that silver look, probably because my first camera was an AE-1 in solver with the black in the center, so I'm drawn to that as well.

    Once you go black, you never go back :smile:.

    I tried several times but failed to count my cameras without writing it down.. and I'm just too lazy to take that trouble. I keep forgetting the one in my coat, or in my other coat, or in that nearly forgotten bag, or in the car (actually two, now that I think about it: a 4x5" and a Canon S90), or the one I lent to a friend (ah, right, that's where my Zorki 4 is, but I didn't miss it yet...), or.... It must be between 75 and 90.
