    I'm happy with what I have, because I learned the hard way many years ago that photography Isn't a problem that can be solved by throwing money at it.

    For even less I'd buy the huge Voigtländer Petzval lens for sale now on the bay ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/121063046400...84.m1423.l2649 ) - and some other great lenses I don't have....

    Or just quit my job and make images (again)
    Oh oh oh!!!! Polaroid type 55!! I forgot about that, I would fund that 55 project in Boston, MA, USA that's designing new type 55 peel apart, I'm excited about it,

    Oh, I have the Mamiya 7 II so I would pay Mamiya to design a Mamiya 7 III that would have these features.

    Non-electronic Mechanical shutter with Bulb and Time features for long exposures (since my battery keeps dying on night shoots in the cold when I'm doing 20+ minute exposures... So frustrating you have no idea!

    And a variable frame size feature to also shoot 6x6 and 6x7 and switch between them mid roll.

    AND/OR make it so the back is detachable like the RZ system so I can switch films mid roll but thin like the 23 and universal press systems. To keep the profile similar. And add frame lines for the additional zoom and wide lenses so no need for a viewfinder.

    Man I'm demanding!

    Lets throw TTL in there even though I use a handheld meter lol

    Better camera lock position (so you don't go to lock the camera and accidentally shoot a frame instead...Doh!), lens cap on warning system...

    That's it for now...

    I still love the Mamiya 7 system best and use it most often, just that I'm a perfectionist

    As mentioned, first thing I'd throw money at is TIME... More time for trying stuff, more time for learning stuff, more time for shooting, more time for EVERYTHING in order to get more and better photographs taken and produced!

    I agree, money buys leisure and education, photographers money instead of owning dozens of cameras and more "stuff" would be better spent on having a few and buying books to study the subject, and pay to attend classes to learn how to use them to better effect.

    Dougs are nice, and we both have spruces.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Here's a Rolls you could possibly afford to convert -

    http://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/...i/1454535.html

    It needs work already, and it's not one of the rare high-value ones, so nobody will get their panties seriously bunched if you perform surgery on it.

    You mean convert it to a large camera obscura right?
