    Silly post. A budget with no other information. Who cares if the OP doesn't know what he wants to do?

    okay, camera is GREAT, but Zeiss lenses are just awful, DON'T BUY IT, they suck big time, get a Mamiya 645 1000s with Sekor lenses instead! :P

    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.

    I asked about that at Best Buy, but they just looked at me funny.

    OK first off wow... I would never think I would have gotten so many helpful suggestions, thanks!!

    What I am looking for is a interchangeable lens system with wide angle to standard lens. 645, 6x7,6x8, 6x9 are fine although 645 is cheaper.

    I also want a metered system as in I dont have a light meter (My digital camera is my lightmeter).

    I was thinking in a Pentax 645n system, they are relatively cheap at adorama.


    **Also I think this is a double post, there is another thread just like this.

    Thanks

    The Pentax should do nicely, from what I know of it, as should something from the Mamiya 645 series. Your need for a light meter rules out some otherwise good options, like the Mamiya C-series TLRs, and the need for interchangeable lenses rules out other TLRs, folders, and (AFAIK) all MF rangefinders. You could of course always add a separate light meter -- basic ones are very inexpensive used, although fancy ones can cost upwards of $100, which would eat seriously into your budget.
