    Sounds to me like a case of "gear head"dom.

    try something different ...

    pick one camera, one lens, one film, one developer, one paper, one paper developer, and shoot/print with only it for a year.

    or just continue collecting gear with a closet full of lenses/cameras/etc and rarely use any of them.

    just a thought

    As you are already using a Canon P and a bunch of screw-mounts, why not pick up a Bessa-R, which does have 75mm framelines?

    All right. Here is what you relly want to do. You want to buy film and paper and wear your Canon out while making your own special photographs that only you can take.

    The world will thank you for doing so.

    (I am in the process of buying the Bessa R3M Special anniversary kit with Heliar F2 collapsible 50mm, so have been investigating lens options, so far an Apo Lanthar 90mm is on the cards).
    I have the same lens but with a Nikon F mount...

    Aw hell it is just 35mm format, go for the gusto and get medium format RF. Remember bigger is better or so the guys say.

    Stephanie,

    Knowing your as I do, I'd suggest that it's time to leave the gearhead-envy of RFF behind and concentrate on your photography.

    Most of those folks will never be happy no matter what is in their kit.

    As Aggie suggests, better you experience a new format altoghether than just go on a gear chase.
