    Thanks to everyone for the very helpful advice! Just to give an update - the outfit I'll be getting does come with a focusing screen and a dark slide for the A12 film back. I will have to get a lens cap, though.

    I think that my first item for a wish list will be different film backs. I like the idea of switching between color and black & white, but also between negative film and slide film. Or I may start off with a lens hood, which is less expensive. Replacing the focusing screen is the last item on the list, since I've been dealing with a crappy viewfinder on my TLR and I have learned my way around it.

    Oh yeah, and I'll have to get more lenses at some point........

    Another question - am I assuming I'll have to invest in some UV filters, the way I do with my SLR cameras? I've looked for those and some ND filters, and my, are they expensive (for filters)!

    You have received many good suggestions and since it is a modular system you can add stuff as you need. I didn't notice anyone suggesting an un-jammer. somewhere along the line you will need it.

    Filters for "protecting" the lens are mainly a personal choice. I prefer to not include an extra piece of glass when it's not needed.

    Here's one (former) hassie user who really really hated the acute matte and the acute matte D screens. The original screens are so much easier to focus of center than the newer ones. Besides although the newer screens are definately brighter I find the old ones to be more than bright enough.
    Kind Regards

    If you mean UV filters for "protection", get yourself the proper hood for the lens. If you need UV filters because you happen to live in an area where UV is very high and messes up the film then...well yes they are expensive.

    I always use lens hoods. And i use UV filters for protection, and they have kept my front lenses safe from a lot of things i would have had to clean off carefully.
    They really work, UV filters.

    And they might do a bit of UV-blocking as well!

    Are B60 filters "stackable?" I've occasionally used 2 (or even 3) filters on a 35mm before.
