    Pluses are the lens quality, light-weight, perfect for travel, built-in meter
    The Mamiya 7 II shutter is close to silent and it's easily triggered. But plastic feeling? Not on my camera!

    I had a Mamiya C-330 [65mm, 80mm. 250mm]. I found it clunky. I switched to a Hasselblad [an 'asselblad?] 500 CX and have never looked back.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Did I write 'asselblad at one point? If so, I meant to write 'blad.

    Had a look at your flicker gallerie and can't see in how far you think 35mm is limiting or MF could help you to improve your photography. My vote is for your F100 and a 1.4/35mm Ais.

    My favorite is RB 67 pro sd. It is robust and reliable. Very heavy though.

    I really don't know. Maybe I just want to waste money on something that wouldn't help me.

    And I haven't heard good things about the 35mm f/1.4 lens.
