Potential Sale... Nikon F100 & MB15
I have a Nikon F100 with the MB15 battery pack/grip. I'm getting out of 35mm and converting to 4x5.
Is there any interest locally (Melbourne)?
Are you sure you don't want to go to 8x10? Are you really sure? Go on....be a devil. Try it, you'll like it. Really.
BTW my name is Lucifer. LOL

I reckon 4x5 will be much more sensible, but then you've got 6x7 cameras offering the same image size, but which do away with the fiddly business of 4x5 (one APUGger described the process, peppering it with F- words and how much better the 6x7 is...) and its bigger pains in the ... ...er sorry, bigger brethren.
“The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see." ~Edward Weston, 1922.
Tempting as 8x10 is, I'm just after something simple with movements. Have a Hasselblad for most things. On the development side, I have a Jobo set up for 4x5, not anything bigger.
