    Nah, I think the F4 is a jeep instead of a hummer, the F4 doesn't suck that much juice.

    I'd say that the Mamiya 7 II is more of a Nissan GTR -- quick to use, technically perfect, but lacking a soul.

    My Nikon FE is like a Toyota Hi-Lux, it's perfect in it's simplicity and just will always work.

    The Pentax ME is like a Miata. Crisp, quick, but a bit adolescent in some ways.

    And finally, the 6x17 4x5 system....well, that's more like a Diesel Pickup with a giant camper shell on the back.

    I think the better Pentax 35mm bodies are rather like Subarus. Not many people know much about them, but those who've owned one find it hard to be without one. Plus an MX is just as happy carrying on until the terrain ahead doesn't count as a road.

    Medium format SLRs have to be the Land Rover Defender. They're endlessly reconfigurable and often feel like a lot of parts in close formation rather than a solid whole.

    Now I'm even more confused.

    I don't like cars. Can I liken them to trucks and buses instead?

    Of course.
