He had a whole closet full of Rolleiflexes, too, but they were all the same! Truth be told, he occasionally used a Hassy with a 150mm for tight shots, too.

I think if you exclusively shoot 8x10 with a normal lens, it's the same camera no matter what make the lens and/or camera might be, provided they are relatively equivalent lenses, which I am sure they were.
