    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.
