I just could not pass it up. So tomorrow I'll take it out for a test drive.

    Normally I don't reply to my own posts, but....

    I got my chromes back from the test I did and I have to say I am very pleased with the results. Both lenses appear to be top notch performers and the camera's meter, while taking some time to get used to, is spot on. I saw no signs of light leaks or other issues. I think I did well.

    Ultimately, whichever camera you have in your hands loaded and ready to shoot is best, and that will depend on which cameras you most like to shoot (as opposed to look at, put on a shelf, etc.) Attached is a pic of my Super D, which gets plenty of action
    What a great GRAFLEX!

    The only camera that follows me around the house and sometimes even sleeps on my bedroom dresser is my rolleiflex. Seems like a magic camera sometimes. Seems like I always get great results with it.

    My favourite MF --as a matter of fact, my only MF, so my opinion may be biassed -- is a TLR, a Mamiya C3 to be specific. I bought a 65 mm lens (or should I use the plural form?) last week, in addition to the 80 mm. The Mamiya is a brick, but it handles really well.

    I've done IR photography with a 35mm SLR... Can't be done without tripod. Put camera on tripod, compose, screw on IR filter, take picture, remove filter, repeat. I've recently shot a roll of IR film using the TLR; a real nice advantage of the twin lens No tripod needed, much easier to just point and shoot.

    Another possible favourite: if I can get my hands on an SQ-A(i)/B for a good price, I just might get one.
