I have long itched going Medium format (and still do, haven't done it yet) and a GW690 seems a really good choice. I'd get one, but buying the camera and extra gear needed would leave me with no money left for film.
Really, really lucky person to grab one of these for 2$. Holy bad. Sorry to hear the OP couldn't grab it. If 200$ is a great price, 2$ is just free.
I agree, I am someone who prefers a shorter ratio compared to 3:2 (35mm).

Prest - Very true, those frames are not cheap these days either.
What about the Mamiya 7 as a contender with the gf/gw's about the same price second hand as the gf, and multiple lens capable. I have heard pretty good things in the past about them. i am in no hurry really to buy any of this stuff, as I have a bunch of new gear I am playing with.
Haha, I cant decide, and to top things off a friend has just called and wants to swap his Bronica with my old IId although, i dont really want an SLR
