    The Rapid-Omega is big and heavy, but its lenses are awesome and for 600$ you could have the body, two backs, and two lenses.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    There are other similar systems for similar prices out there. You'll certainly find a complete set up for your price. Just look around for a while.

    Another really nice thing about the RB, is the rotating back. Without it, moving the RB67 on it's side for a vertical would be like moving a car battery on it's side. Lenses are excellent.

    The Bronica GS-1 is a nice choice, too. No rotating back, but it's lighter and the lenses are also excellent.

    I shoot with a Bronica EC-TL system and Nikkor lenses. Maybe not the best choice, but it's fun to use and I use Nikkor lenses for every format I shoot. Also, it's inexpensive, but hard to find all that you might want, like backs and prisms. 645 backs are really difficult to find for this system.

    These days, you've got tons of choices with prices that are unbelievable, compared to just a few years ago. All of the suggestions from previous posts are good ones.

    Wow! And most of these are cheaper than a used Nikon F5!

    Thanks, I'll write these down, and ask when I go to Henrys Toronto.
