    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.
