    I love that it can be shoved into my work bag, and when the urge strikes, out it pops, unfolds, and grabs the image and pours it to a great negative.
    Plus the reaction that people give you when you haul this old pup out and actually use it is just about as pleasing to me as the pictures it can be a part of producing.
    I do conceed that it is not up to snuff as a modern colour coated lens.
    My Isolette appreciates your love. It's cool, which is why I hold on to it, but the bellows need some fixing and the lens isn't very sharp, like you said. Then there's the whole guess focusing thing.

    On the other hand, I'm pretty close to making a decision. I'm probably going to drop the Mamiya. But maybe there's something else I should consider (which I assume will bring on a flood of answers), should I trade in both for a different system?

    I'd keep the Bronica because leaf shutter flash sync at all shutter speeds.
