    John Blakemore for one and I'm sat looking at one of his prints made with it

    An MPP MkVII or VIII is infinitely better than a Crown Graphic because of the rotating back and extensive movements, and that's speaking as someone with 3 Graphics, a Crown & 2 Speeds.

    Yes, Ian, and the price tag for the MPP goes along with it too Maybe they're cheaper in the UK, but the rare few I've ever seen here in the US had Linhof-esque price tags.

    Not wanting to take this thread too far off the original topic, but having years back owned a MKIII Linhof and currently owning a 'bargain' MK VII MPP....The Linhof had the build qaulity but the MPP is perfectly servicable and fun to use. The Linhof wins on the rangefinder cams and focusing scales BUT I never used the rangefinder on the Linhof or the MPP anyway

    I think my next field 5x4 will be made of wood.

    As with many things, the result is only as good as the weakest link and it's rarely the camera body.

    Cheers Dave
