    Mr McBlane appreciated is your taking the time to amuse an old man. Thank you Michael.
    The pleasure was all mine.

    I would add that "our best choices" do change. I shot 35mm when I started out, then moved to 2 1/4 (hasselblad). Since 2 1/4 is such a great compromise, I really haven't ever left it and my F4 sits in a camera bag unused and I gave away a N8008. I finally was using the F4 for vacation stuff but that has been replaced by Mamiya 7II. (damn I love bigger negs)

    I have 4x5 and dabble in that, Linhof Bi kardan and a Littman. But I photograph a lot of kids and I can't seem to make it work, or can't get out of the comfort zone of 2 1/4.

    I now have a digital Nikon d200 and am playing with that. So our tools do change as do we.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Well I have a Mamiya RZ67 with 50 4.5W, 75mm 3.5L, 140 Macro and 210 Apo. They sit on the shelf gathering dust. To each their own.
