    Photokina wishes.

    We are, if I be not mistaken, about to have another bi annual Photokina.

    Were you to be given but one choice what would you like to see introduced this year?

    Hey, I get to go first.

    I would like to see all of these nice new lenses developed by Zeiss for Nikon etc. to be available in Contax C/Y) mount. I understand why it has not happened in the past but this is my wish.

    The re-introduction of a Nikon's film SLR aimed at the advanced amateur with a price point of about $500US. I l know I'm dreaming, but since you asked...

    New Zeiss lenses for Canon EF and FD mounts.

    Since we're wishing, 8X10 Kodachrome in 10 sheet boxes.

    A 6x9 camera similar to the veriwide, but with a modern (rodenstock) 38mm or (SK) 47mm. It needn't be rangefinder coupled (although i'd love it to be), but it would need to be small like the original, use a single stroke advance, be more ergonomic and cost under 2k. Additionally I'd like to see a modern RF to replace the Mamiya 6. It could be the same as the original with the addition of a wider base line, a 38mm f/4,5 and a 180mm f/4,5 that focused closer then the 150mm.

    I'd also like to see RFholder like Sinar's Zoom, but at 1/4 of the price. A reintroduction of the Kinematic (a 10 sheet graphmatic).

    A better mood within the industry...

    Agfa, Ilford Photo, Ferrania, Filmotec... are not coming

    Thus neither me.

    It would be wonderful if Fuji were to give us more news about it.

    I second that, though I still secretly wish they'd make it 6x6 or 6x9 instead...

    You mean you wouldn't complain that it wasn't in a 25-sheet box?
