    You have chosen an amazing camera system. I have been using mine about 2 years now and have been delighted with its performance. The tilt and shift features are very useful and I use them more than I thought I would. The price of the various system components seems to be dropping and at present they are very readily available. I have the 80, 100, 125, 150, 180 3.2, 190SF, 210 and 250 lenses. Did not pay more than $150 for any of them. Get the bellows compendium shade. I also have the prism eye level viewfinder but do not use it very often. I have had no problem with blurring b/c of mirror slap and it is possible to use the camera hand held. It is a heavy beast but worth the effort of carrying it. I also have the large format lensboard adapter which allows the use of older barrel type lenses - I use my 9 inch Verito with it.

    Thanks..... I will look into the Leaf Aptus system and start saving my pennies. The 3.2 lenses are nice and I will look for those as well.

    I found some very reasonable prices for the Fuji lenses but some of the fast glass (f3.2) can go for twice that or more. Is there a source other than Ebay or KEH to buy lenses? Is there an issue with flare for some of the lenses that requires a shade, or is it just good practice to have one on all the time? I usually use a shade with my Nikon digital camera but its not always necessary. Good to know that in practice,the mirror does not affect sharpness, it was a concern of mine. Thanks.

    I recommend the 100mm lens. It was the best I encountered and worked great as a macro lens too. I still have mine in its original box (mint) if you are interested..

    There is (maybe was) an 125mm f3.2 on ebay for 149.95 currently. Says has some haze but could be cleaned?

    I always try to use the compendium shade to reduce any chance of flare - I do not believe the Fujinon lenses are prone to flare.

    The 125 f3.2 lens is still available on ebay (link below). The hazing looks like possible damage to the coating on the front element, not sure if that can be cleaned, or if not , how badly the lens would flare in certain lighting conditions? It is a really good price though, tempting but I think I'll hold off on that one and wait for another 125 to come up for auction. Thanks for mentioning it.

    I am interested in the 100mm, I believe its an f4.0, and I would like to do macro with this camera. Do you need extension rails to get the focusing range for macro work and is the standard bellows ok to use as is?

    There is a 40mm and 80mm extension available, very simple install.

    Waiting on a 125mm f/3.2 (or 115mm or 180mm) is a good idea. I've the 125mm and 180mm f/3.2 and found them for a little more than the one with the haze... keep an eye out on craigslist if you are near a large-ish metro area.
