    Welcome from Utah, from another GAS sufferer. I also now have a complication of GAS- Galli-itis. It involves small packages that arrive on the doorstep. If it is evening, there will be a subtle green aura emanating from the box. During severe attacks, you will find yourself driving through Nevada blizzards, to pick up larger items. Be careful, its contagious as well.

    I've been shooting for a bit over 20 years now. First "real" camera was a Leica IIIc my grandfather traded me for my Minolta 110 (I think it was a model 450 or something like that). A few years later it was augmented by a Canon A-1. then an Elan 7, then a couple of (spoken in a whisper so as not to offend) Canon D-SLRs. In the past few months I've picked up a number of medium format cameras on e-bay. I started with a Yashica-D, and quickly moved to a 2x3 Century Graphic (and a couple of weeks ago a Pacemaker Speed). I recently won a 4x5 Pacemaker Speed and my first HP5 sheet film is on its way from B&H today. Looking forward to getting used to it before some hiking trips out west later in the year.

    Welcome! I too started in medium format with a Yashica D, then a century graphic, then large format with a 4X5 speed. While I have other med format, (Rolleiflex, Pentacon 6), I use the century regularily. I have a kodak 105/4.5lens from a Monitor that I use with the century. It is not as sharp as the 80/2.8 Xenotar or the 105/3.5 Colour-Heliar I have, but it gives an "old-time" look that the other two lenses can't match.

    This is a great place. Lots of really smart people here who have tried and/or screwed up just about everything photographic you can think of, and are not afraid to talk about it. Enjoy.

    This may be the best quote I've ever read here.

    It should!
