    Favorite type of MF camera?

    I find that for 35mm I love rangefinders, but for MF, an SLR is my cup of tea! (I keep going back to MF SLR's despite a brief stint with a rangefinder and a couple of TLR's I have laying around)

    What say you guys?

    I have a Bronica ETRS but I keep thinking that I should have a medium format rangefinder such as the Bronica RF645 or one of the Fuji GW690/670 range.

    I have SLR, TLR and a rangefinder. I use the SLR most of all. However, in the last week, I've printed about a dozen older negs for a group get together, and found that about half of them came from the little Fuji rangefinder. It was an interesting revelation.

    How about the Mamiya 6/MF and Mamiya 7/7II?

    the RB is great also...and if I wasn't getting an F3, I'd go for the M6 or 7 to bring with me everywhere I go.

    I own a Fuji 6x9 rangefinder, a Rollei TLR, and a Hasselblad. Versatility of the Hasselblad blows the others away. I also just like the way it feels when I use it. I still use the other two: The rollei is a backup camera whenever I'm out with the Hasselblad, and the 6x9 is my "big gun" for some subjects, and also camera I take on occasional dayhikes when I only want to take one camera.

    When she learned its age, my girlfriend asked me not if, but how crazy I was to pay what I paid for my Hassy 500CM. I replied that once in every man's life he should buy the best, and since I didn't have a Harley Davidson, the Hassy was a surrogate.

    Guess who got that line back in his face when he DID buy a Harley???

    I have acouple of Mamiya 645s and an RB. I also am getting my arms around a Mamiya 7II. The latter is certainly the most portable, and although I have an integral light meter with both the 645s and the RB, I like the way the 7II feels in the hands. The RF is pretty quick to focus.

    My favorite combination however at the moment is 6x9 and 6x12 backs on my Toyo 45AX. Not sure that it still qualifies for MF in that configuration, but there it is.
