    Better know a repair guy pretty well if you're planning on using one!

    You could blow the budget with a Hassy or you could use that cash for some TLR's, the Mamiya 645 is cheap enough......you will want to play with one of those, an RB and/or a press camera too. That should cover all the formats and think of the fun you will have trying to use all of them.


    I wouldn't think of it as a purchase.....think of it as your FIRST medium format purchase.....of many.

    Strewth - maybe he's playng football with his cameras...!

    I've used my P67II for landscape photography 10+ years, it's been carried up mountains, used in blizzards, accidently dropped in bogs etc and has always worked fine. They're pretty reliable workhorses in my opinion...
