    Good luck in your quest, Randy.

    I'd concur with the suggestion of keeping at least one lightweight 35mm for use in site documentation, etc. My 8x10 Tachi refuses to go into the field without his little buddy along.

    Welcome to 8x10! As others have said----those big negatives are well worth it!

    I was planning on keeping all of my MF gear since I've got it setup just right, but I haven't exposed 35mm film in at least a year, perhaps more. I will probably just thin out the smaller equipment to free up some funds for film holders and such. Thanks to all for the advice and encouragement!

The one on Ebay is a good deal and would make a great starting camera and lens for you.
    That's the one I'm gunning for. It is just what I've been looking for for some time and although it doesn't have the rear rail, I'm a fair hand in the woodshop and I've got the 4x5 version as a model, so I think I can make something up after the fact if I feel that I need it. I just hope that I can justify going over my budget if it goes too high, becuase I really like this camera and I think I've let too many of these slip away in the past to let this one go without a fight.

    I was lucky enough to get a perfect condition Kodak Master 8x10 a few months ago. Two weeks later I had the opportunity to pick up a perfect condition Kodak 2D in 8x10 for a few hundred. I didn't pass that one up either. One camera is never enough...

    What is with this "one camera is never enough" stuff? Next you will be spending your money to buy 2 different lightbulbs for contact printing.
