    Just the other day I was thinking how inexpensive a 5-pack of acros 120 still is. You know what? If it goes up 10%, it will still be inexpensive.

    While I totally agree, the prices for some films have gone up so often and so much that the price alone threatens the survival. I'm thinking in particular of E6 films, pretty much all of them. (Which all mean Fuji now anyway.)

    If they'd bring back Astia I'd pay more for it.

    Acros is a remarkably inexpensive film in 120 compared to the competition from Kodak and Ilford. Given that, why it's about the most expensive black and white sheet film is a mystery.

    I pretty much only use Fuji for E-6, and while 10% isn't that big a jump in itself, when you add up the recent price increases and the expense of processing, the cost per frame in 35mm is starting to get kind of bad. I'm wondering again if it makes sense to get a metered, handholdable 645 and shoot less 35mm. (But the 35mm lenses! I can't imagine I'd find a MF lens with the character of a 50/1.5 Sonnar, would I? And I rarely shoot verticals, which most 645s seem to favor...oh, I dunno.)

    My Mamiya 645 Pro shoots horizontals when held normally, FWIW. It's easy enough to turn for verticals, at least with the winder grip which I also have. It's certainly big compared to my 35mm Pentaxes, but it handles easily and the lenses are superb. Can't compare them to 50 1.5 Sonnar though, as I've no experience with one of those.

    50/1.5 Sonnar magic is only in 135 RF and its worth every shot.
    MF shines with other niceties.

    Well, *that* was an enabling post. I just pulled the trigger on an M645 outfit from KEH. Didn't realize how inexpensive they'd gotten! It defaults to vertical, but I'll manage.
