    Keep it until you have enough lenses in MF to sell the Nikon for film. That's what I'm getting ready to do with the sr-T101.
    Thank you.

    Keep them all they are very different cameras with different uses. If after a year you haven't used one then sell it.

    That's why I have soooo many cameras I use them all.

    I never sell my photo equipment. The money you get is not worth it - the satisfaction to have it handy "in the case of" is.

    When I went to medium format with a Rolleicord, a Bronica and an RB67 I kept my 35mm cameras as something small to carry around. However, my 35mm cameras are a Nikon FG and a Nikon F601, both of which are compact.

    The F6 is a large camera and therefore, I see no advantage in using it over the Contax as they are of similar bulk.

    However, if I had an F6 I don't think I would get rid of it!

    (That doesn't really help much does it?).

    I cannot part with the F6, after I compared the F6 viewfinder to Contax

    What's the matter with the Contax viewfinder?

    This thread is a little older.... I am wondering if the OP kept the F6 with the Contax 645 and their thoughts? If this were a current thread I would have suggested getting some Zeiss F mount prime glass for the F6 (e.g. 35mm f/1.4, etc) and enjoying the Zeiss quality and rich contrast that we all love in those lenses on the F6 and smaller 35mm format. In most cases if you just slightly underexpose your 35mm negative and develop by about 10/15% less in a fine grain developer like XTOL 1+1 along with the Zeiss glass you would find all sorts of reasons to keep your F6 and Contax 645. The same principles can be applied to your 645 as well. For large format I take the opposite approach by giving it more light.

    My advice is to NEVER act on compulsion. Wait at least 3 months before you sell something.
    Now you are overwhelmed but maybe in a few weeks time you change your mind.
