Well I decided to go with the Bronica. I really struggled over this as I've heard so many glowing reports about the Hassy but the truth is that I'd only have been able to afford the C Chrome lenses and not take advantage of the newer designs plus the kit would be much smaller due to the cost of the lenses. The Bronnies have been in use for years and folks make wonderful images with them so hopefully I can too. As I write this an SQA and a 65mmPS are winging their way to me. I have the dough set aside for more lenses but I want to make sure I'm comfortable with the camera 100% before I commit all the way. Thanks for all the guidance, I really appreciate it.
