    GA645 AND GA645w?

    Anyone own both? Do you have both in the bag when out shooting? I have the GA645 and I constantly wonder if I would be happier with the wide version. But then I dont want to give up the one I have now.

    GA645 AND GA645w?

    Dante Stella's site on these discussed the wide compared to the normal. I have the 645 and the 645zi. Love both though could live with the 645 alone. But if 28mm wide perspective (in 35mm film terms) was my forte (its not I mostly prefer normal to short-tele) I'd buy the wide in a heart beat. Do you like and mostly prefer wide angle?

    I find all kinds of shots that dont fit in the GA645 frame. It can be frustrating at times.

    Then you have my support: get a 645wi!

    Or perhaps a GSW670 or 690?

    I dont think there is a wide version of the GW670, is there? I used to own the GSW690 back in the film era. Amazing camera. Wish I didnt sell it.

    The GW670 is the "normal" with the 90mm lens and the GSW is the "wide" with the 65mm lens.

    There is no such camera as a GSW670.

    There is, however, a GF670w, albeit a Cosina Fuji.

    Yes, and stupidly priced at over $3500 here in China.
