    Your Wish List?

    For many years I have purchased/used/accumulated many film bodies. While I have stuck mostly with Nikon, I have also experimented with other brands. My first SLR was a Pentax K1000, but after that I switched to Nikon. I currently have 3 cameras on my wish list:

    1. A Pentax MX

    2. A Leica M3

    3. A Hasselblad 500 C/M

    What's on your wish list?

    Become a better photographer through knowledge/experience/practice rather than more gear acquisition

    No 2 on your list was on mine until this afternoon when I picked up a nice 1957 M3 . The 500C/M is too but it'll have to stay there a little longer - meanwhile, I have a Bronica SQ-A. Pretty happy with what's in my bag, truth be told.

    Even mine will do the same. Can someone comment on why wives become killers when they hear about cameras?

    Oh the list too long but let me shorten to 3 like yours.

    1. Linhof master karden TL 4x5
    2. Hasselblad 2000FC/M
    3. Nikon F2AS (I had one since new but got stolen).

    1) A 12x20 camera
    2) 12x20 BTZS Tubes*
    3) Delta 3200 in sheet films, and avaliable during Ilford's ULF runs*

    *Hey! I dont recall saying the wishlist had to be avaliable or commercially viable.

    But seriously, I would like to be comfortable enough in my LF photography skills to justify buying one of those monsters one day. So I guess my real wishlist is

    1) 12x20 camera
    2) The skill to use such a monster
    3) a wife that also wants a behemoth camera
