    What camera are you lusting after, and why?

    As I impatiently await the arrival of my latest acquisition, I ponder if there will be another must have camera in my future (aside from the new Fuji/Cosina)?

    So what camera are you lusting after and why?

    Unfortunately they don't make it.. Basically a Leica SLR that's the same size or smaller than the M series.

    Me too. I'm lusting for a lightweight, waterproof, unshakeable in storm force winds, dust repelling 4x5 field camera. Wish me luck!

    A 2nd hand Leica M6. Sick of getting weird looks when I pull out the Nikon F5 in a restaurant.

    Big fat camera with a lens from 17mm up to 1000 mm f/1.4 or even f 2.8 probably a 6 X 6 format should suit me well. Then I woke up :=)

    Mamiya RB67, as I'm more and more involved in Medium format, and I sometimes miss a reflex viewer and interchangeable lenses.

    Rolleiflex 2.8F, because I LOVE my 3.5 and I'd like something more open

    I've got most of them now. RB67, Rolleicord, Speed Graphic.

    The speed graphic I have is a bit beaten up and missing a few parts so I would like a nice original condition one. there's no hurry though and I will have to save up for it as they seem to sell for a lot more in the UK than they do in the US.

    I may think about going to 10 x 8 one day too.

    A medium format camera that I can mount an old Petzval lens on and have some semblance of a focus mechanism. Why? I really like some of the work I've seen (particularly here) with the Petzvals, but I'm not into large format.

    I suppose the "official" answer is to get a view camera with a rollfilm back, but for me right now that just seems too large and awkward.

    I may have to look into getting bellows for my Kiev 60 and modifying a body cap for this purpose (unless someone has a better idea, of course)...
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.
