    If by "outperform" you mean faster apertures, wider selection and minimum focus distance, I agree. But in all other respects they are equal and in some instances the PG lenses are better (e.g., in-lens shutters, faster sync speeds). Personally, I find the Pentax 67 too limiting for what I do so I guess the OP is going to have to decide what suits his needs.

    Steve I have never heard of anyone comparing a Hassy body with prism to a 35mm camera. (^:

    Maye the OP should consider a TLR. Get the feet wet so to say. Light, resell-able, decent lens if the right camera, travels well, even a meter on some.

    I changed from Nikon F2 to P67II because I wanted the largest slides I can project without hassle. A small Goetschmann projector like my G67 is not that expensive and the experience of a projected 6x7 slide is unique. My P67II has served me for 13 years without any problems. The same holds for my Pentax lenses.

    Hassie?! Get an old-school focal-plane Bronica (S, S2, S2a, EC, EC-TL etc.). Then you can go MF and shoot Nikons.

    If you feel that slides require inbuilt metering, then admittedly you need the EC-TL or the unbelievably wonky add-on metering prism for the other models (toggle switches! coiled wires! oh boy!)
