The 140 is next on my purchase list and with luck, I'll have one this afternoon. I currently own the 50, 90, 127, 150 and 180--and each gets used regularly. I want the macro to pair with the 50 and 90 for back packing as that will give me a fairly versitile spread. I mostly shoot in black and white and until I find a printer or set up a darkroom, am having my negatives scanned. People are amazed at the difference in quality of the film images over digital. I did not realize that I didn't get closer focusing with the 140, but since it's the flatter field I'm wanting it for, that's not an issue.
Interesting thread with lots of great photos and information! Thanks!
