    Yep, I agree. There's so cheap I've bought 3 so far.

    One for me, and one for each of my Daughters that are interested in photography.

    Why thank you Mr. Moore!

    I have a daughter interested in photography too!!
    What an excellent excuse to go buy number 3!!
    But for variety - I really should get a different model number!

    Although the lenses still cost and the SWC does as well.

    Yep, they're so cheap I'm clinging sadly to the two I bought new years ago, even though I don't use them as often as I used to.

    I keep them in the safe, right next to those Enron shares.

    Those puppies have a long way to come down to beat my 65mm on 4x5.

    For what I want it for my 58mm on a 4x5 won't due -- a Mamiya 7 with a 43mm might suffice, but money is still the issue.

    What about a Kiev60 with the 3,5/30mm Zodiak/Arsat? Or get the adapter for the 645 and a 645J body for not that much money.

    But the lens is not rectilinear.

    The best deal out there for a 6x6 ultrawide is a Bronica S- or EC-series with the Nikkor 40/4.0. The camera is built around this lens, and it's one of the best lenses in the classic Bronica lineup. You can find an S2A for $350-500 with Nikkor 75mm, WLF and a 12/24 back (less if you get an S2, S, or C), and the lens should run around $650. The S-series Bronicas had a falling mirror and the EC-series have a split mirror, so that wide lenses can protrude into the mirror box. The Nikkor 40/4.0 is a similar design to the 40mm Distagon, but it doesn't have to make up for as much retrofocus distance as the Zeiss lens on a Hassy.

    A 6x6 setup with a 500 c/m and all the Zeiss lenses you can afford with an S2A and all the Nikkor lenses you can't afford for the Hassy could be a really nice kit.
