    I use a black Leica M2 for a hammer. Is that a Bad Thing?

    Shooting different formats all have pros and cons. Use the right camera for the right subject/effect. (assuming one has many formats from which to choose)
    Hey be nice now, I have drove quite a few nails with adjustable wrenches! LOL

    All formats have there place and I have shot quite a few of them, up to and including 20" x 24"...

    Shoot what you shoot and have fun!

    The problem with 35mm is it's too heavy. The 450mm lens I'm dreaming about is 290grams. I'd be afraid to even think how heavy a 35mm 450mm lens would be. 300grams? More? I'd tip over with one of those monsters on the front of the camera. Then they go and put the film in metal cans. What's up with that? Isn't the whole setup heavy enough already??? Maybe it's to balance out the weight of the lens. Is that how you keep from tipping over? I'll stick with LF until they can get the weight issue under control.

    Bingo!

    I use 4x5s for certain things, MF for certain things, and 35mm for certain things.

    When I travel abroad, I don't take my 4x5. Too much hassle for me. I like to travel light. So the ETRsi and one of the 35s comes with.

    That's my point Dave We've all used a wrench for nails, as well as wishing we had a different format for some given photographic task at some point.

    Still, the wrench may get the job done. It's just a tool.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    If you look closely, you can see that Ole has a 35mm back on that camera

    I'm a completely unashamed 35mm user. Fully manual SLRs are my weapon of choice. All I have to do to re-affirm my committment is to look at my walls and count the pictures that would have never been taken with a bulkier, slower, less versatile camera. I like to keep a tripod optional, I like to carry a camera wherever I go instead of shooting out of the trunk or planning photo excursions. I regularly use a 4x5 view camera, usually with a rollfilm back, for still life because I need the movements but never thought that my personal style was adapted to the big cameras.

    Of course, I am also glad that so many of our Large Format Cousins are out there actively plying their preferred branch of photography. Their results are breathtaking and their efforts are a gift to those who truly enjoy viewing them. Thank goodness analog photography is such a big tent. Something for everyone.

    I think that I'll go back to my old sig

    Well Nick,

    I just purchased a 800mm f/5.6, what a freaking Monster, takes great shots, but can be a pain to play with..of course it is the 35mm format for wildlife shooting, for some reason, as I get older, I like the distance between me and the Grizz it offers! LOL
