    Well I had a Linhof 612 PC II with the 65mm and 135mm lens. I never really thought of it as a hand held camera. Yes you could but it just did not seem "handy" enough.

    It was a fine tripod camera. As such, a Horseman 612 back on a 4x5 made more sense to me.

    Thank-you for bringing the discussion back to how these cameras are used.

    Yes, I tried the latter too: Horseman on MPP Mk VII, with 150/4.5 Apo-Lanthar and 90/6.8 Angulon. The Alpa is MUCH easier.

    Cheers,

    If one wanted to have rangefinder focusing, there is also the option of the Linhof Technika 23 V, with 55 and 120 mm lenses and a 6X9 back, for hand-held reportage...
