    Bronica vs Fuji

    Hi all,
    Hypotheticaly, if I were in the market for a new MF rangefinder and for the same cost (+/- $50) I could buy a new-in-box old stock Bronica RF645 with a 65mm F4 (with no warranty) or a new Fuji GF670, what would be the deciding factors?

    I have B&W enlarger capacity up to 6x6, so I guess only my lab processed colour film could take advantage of the 6x7 format.

    As I see it, the only substantial differences are:
    warranty
    format
    operator interface

    and as both would be (hypotheticaly) mail order I have no opportunity to get my hands on them. Which is why I'm asking for opinions.

    (definition of 'hypotheticaly': my beloved has no idea I'm contemplating spending enough money for a week or two holiday on another camera...lets 'park' that side of the equation and all the 2nd hand options for now.)

    Does anyone care to comment?

    I go with Fuji, have that classic look, simple and small when close the lens, also 6x7 is way big over Bronica and big negative is better anyway.

    For me I would find an enlarger that takes 6x7 or 4x5 and get the Fuji.

    Both are fine cameras. For me I'm about the size/carry/handling. I've used folders in the past and loved them.

    I'd get the Fuji, but then I like folders! Oh, and it shoots square, which is the best format

    judging from this user's experience it woudn't matter that much if your camera had a warranty or not.
