I have a pair of FX-3s and will not sell them short. FOr my money they are as good as any 35mm body but, then again I am a minimalist. But as I also own a Bronica ETRs system, I use the 35mm back mostly when I want to shoot 35mm. Yes, quite a bit heavier the the FX-3 but, not unweildy. I can not see spending gobs of cash on 2 separate systems so when I buy for a camera, it is to expand the Bronica. One day I might concentrate more on the Yashica as I do like the ML lens though not as much as my Leica.
