    Thanks for the info Dennis. I did not know that first models of the FX-N could not mount a filter (I can just shake my head about it).

    Bay 4 is of no advantage when trying to find the filters ... :-\

    Just a little update on the filters (no I did not buy an FX or FX-N yet) - if one checks out the (rather new) http://rolleiflex.us webpage, it is made clear that FX-N can only mount filters with an additional adapter:

    Quote from the FX-N description:
    Special note: While the FX-N has a outer bayonet mount for hoods / shades, there is no internal bayonet for filters. To mount filters the bay IV filter adapter must be used.

    The adapter costs another $410 but also allows to "swing" the filter between taking and viewing lens. To me it is unnecessary complication and disadvantage of the FX-N compared to FX.

    Another update. I was actually very close to buy the latest FX model (fron ca 2011) for shy under 50% price of a new one. I just could not bring myself to do it - and then a very nice 2.8E (E1, Planar) freshly CLAd popped locally even with the right accessories and I took the plunge. The camera was delivered today. I t is gorgeous.

    So for now it seems that I will not be getting the FX anytime soon (the itch is there, but got much weaker). I may rather keep the cash (I sold my complete 4x5" setup - no chance to use it now since we got our first child just few weeks ago) and possibly get a Horseman or Linhof 6x12 with 2 lenses later. But that would be a topic for another thread.

    Right now I have to figure out whether I will keep my Mamiya 6 and Xpan (feels like too much for one person).

    Thanks, I do like the order of your congratulation (camera first)

    By too many camera I mean that I use each of them too little what makes it hard to master the camera properly.
