The river is the Whanganui River (New Zealand). I didn't think the 210mm would be suitable...but I will see what it looks like. The 135mm is a NIKOR. Thanks for your feed back.
The trip is a jet boat ride to the site..camp over and explore the surrounding area.
Wow! Talk about a pain in the rear for shooting out and about in nature. I'd do yourself a favor for future outings. F's are cheap. Pick up an F-2 rear standard and a multipurpose standard for the front so you can leave the big P standards at home on this sort of trip, and end up with a lightweight and compact F-1. Doing this makes the camera about 6 lbs. sans lens and board – about as much as a Technika. The usefulness of most of the P's benefits (i.e. precision and solidity) is all but lost out in nature anyhow, and they do nothing but add weight (and quite a bit of it).
How did it turn out in the end? What lens did you use?

The 300 Ektar Commercial is what i will start looking for. Appreciate your help. It will be mainly for studio setups...but I trust it will be fine for outdoors also.
I used the H'blad in the end for the river trip...but used the Sinar for some interior shots at the River community called Jerusalem.
Are your photographs 8 x 10 's? I could only see them as thumbnails as I am not subscribed yet.
I especially liked the flags.
I know what you mean by the Sinar being weighty. I used the convenient Hasselblad in the end.
Its 8 x 10 lenses that interest me now. I like the time and concentration the Sinar P requires to set up.
The lens I am after is for a studio set up.
