    Actually, I used to own a Koni-Omegaflex (the TLR sibling.) I always thought the Hexanons pretty well rocked.

    A Rapid Omega is a FINE camera. Good as any camera needs to be.

    It is my understanding, though, that the 135 (my second favorite) is difficult to obtain.

    It is. So one alternative is to just enlarge the negative with the 90. Still gets you the image area of a cropped CM negative to get the same thing.

    I have often pondered that solution. If I thought I could get the 58 (with finder) and 135 I would probably be a goner, though give me a month or two before offering me one, please. :P

    Well I've owned them all. And when I got burned out on owning cameras and wanting my house back from all that junk, I got rid of all over it and just keep the Hasselblad. Now the house is cluttered with reel to reel tape recorders, and tape recorder repair equipment.

    I am just a smidge away from making (RA-4) prints.

    I weighed my 500cm on my postage scale for you. It weighs 3 pounds 5 ounces including body, waist level finder, and A12 120 film back.

    Oh, I forgot that weight also included an 80mm Planar lens.
