Chers all for your offers. I hope to be away for 6 weeks by next weds so I will be in touch after then.

As for the lenses vs the bodies...I am most keen on the bodies because they are unique (unfortunately) in construction and quietness. I do however want to find out what if anything I will get over and above 'regular lenses' in terms of image expectations. Primarily I wonder whether there is a hard to define look that will please me.

As for teh Mamiya 7...I woul love one, but how expensive (compared to RF645)?
