    Andreas is no longer with us. Now, start using a tripod or suffer the consequences.

    35 has its place. This morning I rose from my sick-bed -- bad cold, you don't want one -- and went to the eastern edge of the Pine Barrens with my wife to look for a couple of rare plants. We even found one of them, Asclepias lanceolata, in bloom.

    Took the 35 mm gear because I wasn't up to setting up for close-up flash shots with a Graphic. Some times larger gear is just too cumbersome and slow-working. And since I was shooting KM (freezer's not empty yet) with flash and a MicroNikkor, I get better pictures than I would at the same scale on 2x3 with EPP or EPN. When I want to squeeze more in, then 2x3 wins because I can shoot it at a larger scale than 35 mm.

    Horses for courses, as my many times great grandfather used to say.

    Hi.
    I went from shooting 6 mp dslr's to 645, to 6x6, to 6x7, to 6x9 (with a few 4x5's thrown in for good measure). I thought 35mm was a waste of time and money. I find that, having shot 35mm for the past 3 weeks or so, that I am able to make great images with this format. I was so preoccupied with detail and tonality, that I forgot the purpose of using a camera in the first place: to make a great image!

    I must say, however, that I was not convinced that 35mm was a more than viable medium for me until I got this Contax G outfit. Those zeiss lenses...they ain't human, man! They see things 35mm ain't supposed to see!

    I've actually considered trading one of my Blad bodies for a G2...

    Are we still discussing photography here?
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    It's not the size, it's what you do with it (not that I've heard that, of course).

    Whatever, I'm going out to shoot my Toyo with my brand new Schneider 80mm f4.5 Super Symmar XL lens. And ... I have a fresh box of Velvia QuickLoads to go with it.
