    Not quite enough improvement over 135. On the other hand... 6x7cm. YUP!! I have personal experience with this. I owned a Bronica EQR-S and, although it was a very fine camera system, I ALWAYS chose 135 for portability or 6x7 for quality. The next logical step up from 6x7cm is 4x5.

    On the other... other hand... if you get a fantastic deal you can always play with it for awhile then decide whether or not you want to keep it.

    But, again, I agree with M.A.Longmore... 6x4.5 is luke-warm.

    ETA: Just looked at the ad. Pretty damned hard to go wrong for $200!!!!!!!

    I rather go for 6x7, but the 6x4.5 is not bad.

    I hope you already have it in your hands. It looks like a decent deal. At least worth checking out .

    I would be remiss if did not enable your GAS, however wouldn't you be happier with a Hasselblad which can be used for 6x6 and 645.

    My bad, the Devil made me do it!
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    That of course, is the rare ETR/SQ hybrid which took lenses from either and had an expandable film gate.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    If he really has GAS, he would get both the Mamiya and the Hassy....Not that i would know anything about that.
