    Not in any order because theres no way I could decide but...

    -GX680, sheet film sort of scares me so if I wanted to be able to do some minor movements it'd be a good choice. I also think the fact that it shoots 6x8 is rare, unique and cool, not 6x7, not 6x9, FRICKEN IN BETWEEN AT 6x8! So cool...I suppose its a revival of one of the older medium formats that got lost (forgot the specifics). But yeah I'd like to rent a GX680 some time....Idk how much movements you could do with it compared to 4x5 or 8x10 or even how much of an improvement over a tilt shift lens on a 35mm it would be, I imagine itd be well in between but I'd have to see it to believe it

    -Mamiya RZ67 Pro, that waist level viewfinder makes my mouth water and its looks are amazing. I'm into cinematography and video as well and while RED cameras aren't my favorite the RED Epic was based on cameras like the RZ67 and Hassleblad 500 series and its a very comfortable way to shoot, especially at slower shutter speeds.

    -Fuji GW690 aka the Texas Leica (say it with a Texas accent or it doesn't sound as cool!) hehe I'm biased I have one on the way, but I find the idea of just enlarging a range finder for 120 in 6x9 format as just simple but genius. As much as I love the RZ67 or the various other MF systems, sometimes I don't want a system…I just want a camera that takes sharp pictures if I do everything right. It looks so silly pressed against someones face if they aren't a giant though..I love it! I'm used to SLR's so I suppose the weight/size aspect won't be that big of a deal.

    I have others, but the coolest must be the 6x9 Graflex SLR with roll-film holder and 127mm Ektar. It's in great working condition and sure draws lots of looks.

    Texas Leicas are lighter weight than Nikon F4, F5 and Canon EOS3.

    Haha my friend loves his Speed Graphic with a 6x9 roll film holder. Funny he was just talking to me about it when I mentioned my Texas Leica on the way. I definitely like a Graflex, a 4x5 Speed Graphic would be an awesome camera to add to my collection.

    Interesting...I never knew that...even the original one? I'm not talking about the plastic ones like the Fuji GW690III I'm talking about the original Fujica GW690...was thinking of an EOS3 since I shoot Canon DSLR's and have a bunch of Canon glass.

    I just picked up all 4 cameras and there is not a lot of difference amount them. Of course, different lenses have a big effect. The lenses on the Fujica surely have larger diameters.

    IN hand, I judge the F5 and F4 are the heaviest, followed by EOS3 and Fujica 690.

    I mean the interchangeable lens Fujicas, not the later plastic models.

    Remember that a lot of the weight in the big SLRs is the battery weight needed for the auto film advance systems.

    Bottom line, if you expect the Fujica to be heavier, you will be surprised!

    I finally got to hold a Mamiya 7II today...and I have to say I think that is the coolest MF for me. I like MF and I like Rangefinders...if only it weren't so dang expensive.

    Then you might also like a Bronica RF645. Very nice to handle, excellent glass and not that expensive. A good rangefinder too.
    Negative size 6x4.5 cm.

    Just be aware that when held normally (upright) the RF645 shoots in portrait orientation.

    It does. It was getting used to (a bit) at first, but now I like it. Makes you think about your creative process ...
    Alway a good thing.

    Sure, no problem with it - as a Bronica ETRSi shooter I would love one myself. Just worth mentioning as it is somewhat unusual in this respect.
