    I have two already. My 8x20 and 11x14 Walnut cameras I built myself. I like the lifetime supply of film and expired paper!

    I'm thinking along the same lines as john nanian. I've got more than enough cameras and lenses. If I had seriiouos $$ I'd spend it on serious travelling. Italy and Switzerland for sure. Mexico, Alaska, and a bunch of other places. I'd also spend $$ on film (FP-4+) paper (Fomabrom 111) and chemicals (Ansco 130 and D-76) maybe even build a "for reals" dark room. If I were obscenely wealthy I'd get a A-26 as a platform for my K-17 aerial camera and something like a Jersy Pilot Cutter for exploring the coast of Alaska, where I could take LF photographs and perfect talking like a pirate--arrr!

    Yeah. me too. I'd travel with what I have.

    I've bought and sold more LF gear than I care to admit - hunting for the perfect camera...and I've come to the conclusion that it simply does not exist. They all fall short.

    If money was no object, I would start my own custom camera company. An 8x10 Speed Graphic clone would be nice...as would an 11x14 Sinar back.

    ...but as for things I would just go out and buy if a bag of money were dropped on my head, here is my short list:

    - The world's greatest assistant
    - Lots of powerful Mole-Richardsons (4Ks, I believe) and the electrical system to handle them
    - The world's remaining supply of tungsten-balanced film (at least a large chunk of it!)
    - 5x7 Speed Graphic or Technika
    - 8x10/5x7 Sinar kit
    - 8x10 enlarger; Durst or DeVere

    All the post are all what we would like, to have, well with one or two, travel but to me the most important would be time, i don't think money no matter how much, could get you this.

    If money was no object, I would by the tools and materials and build my own exactly as I wanted it.

    I would get a top-end Ebony - both very good (by all accounts) and very beautiful

    Money has never been an obstacle for me.
    I've never had enough for it to get in my way.

    I'd get a Gandolfi.. (4x5, as I already have the 5x7, 8x10, half plate stereo, full plate and the 12x16....)

    money enough? Then I'd go but lenses, rather than cameras. top of the list would be: Pinkham and Smith - Universal Heliar, and Nicolai Perscheid...

    Then I'd be happy.....
