    Yeah, but do you own an Xpan?

    For what it's worth, I would never be that kind of wife, nor would I want to be married to that kind of husband.

    As for my wishlist, since I travel a lot I would love a camera that is as light as a Holga (with various lenses of similar weight) but that shoots with the quality of a Hasselblad. Interchangeable backs would be great too.

    But if we have to go for something real, then I'm kind of like one of the previous posters -- I'd rather be great at what I do, both with the camera and in the darkroom, rather than add more to what I have (30 cameras and counting).

    I have a shocking amount of cameras. And I've settled to a handful that I use consistently. I would like to add some lenses for these cameras:

    - Zeiss Ikon Tenax II
    - Zeisss Ikon Nettax (35mm)
    - Rolleiflex SL 35 series

    That's pretty much it. I've owned and used many other cameras. Way too many.

    My gear related wish list:

    1) somebody to take all my orphaned 35mm gear
    2) a darkroom that I don't have to disassemble and hide throughout the house when not in use.
    3) time
    4) just one good color lab with reasonable prices....preferably, local ( I really wish E&J were still around!)

    My wish is that every body that contacts me about gear I have for sale would follow through. I don't mean buy it, although that would be swell, but in communication. I recently was contacted about a camera for sale, then was informed a money order was on the way, then nothing. The fellow won't reply to PMs and the MO never showed. Another person asks for more pix and better description of a camera, then drops off the face of the planet. I suppose my wish is actually about better manners. As for my gear, I have everything camera wise that I will use, and am selling off what I don't need. I could use Pt/Pd supplies, the budget is tight right now and will be until sales of gear come through.

    Lady, we are talking of *killing*. Complaining is a walk in the park.

    I always had a thing for "winger". Now I can add you to the list.

    I already have MX and Hasselblad. I want the M3 with Summarit 50/1.5 lens, a rolleiflex 2.8, Norita 66 with 80/2 lens, pentax 67 + 105/2.4 and... the list goes on. I'm more after the lenses than cameras perse. My guess is that I will get the M3 in 6-7 months.

    No 35mm cameras for me. My wish list . . . I would like to have one of the cameras Nadar used during his aerial photography (ballooning) experiments. To have plate cameras from his studio would also be nice.

    Okay . . . I'm probably wishing for too much there. How about a 20x24 plate camera with a normal lens, 3 plate holders, and tripod?
