    That tops any argument I could make for using a prism finder on a 645!

    And, Why would I let the camera in hand dictate the final composition/crop? (as long as I only crop one way.)
    You could for instance carry a A16 back for 6x4.5 and A12 for 6x6...

    You are right I could carry it but still, it's more stuff to worry about and to find pockets for and the weight adds up and if you are in a hurry to shoot ....

    As we used to say in street racing "run what ya brung". No switching cars, gears, tires. The opportunity to race was a now or never, put up or shut up, no excuses, offer.

    As to wasting film, i'll bet we all normally "waste" a lot more film in general shooting, than we ever do in cropping, and if we grab an opportunity and crop instead of grabbing a different back and missing, who wins?

    Get an F4 and a 50 1.8 for S&G and a hassy with the leftover cash.

    Don't bother with 645, it's a stupid format, you'd be better off with a superior 35mm camera that a slow 645 camera.
