I just picked up a very nice Zeiss Ikonta 521/2 for $30. I wanted to try med format on a buget and I don't like plasic Holgas so this seemed like a nice way to get started. I feel like if I don't use a well built camera with nice optics I'm wasting good film. I do have a Canon 20d and I shoot alot of digital and I like it better in alot a ways but I feel myself being drawn to larger formats of film because of the tone, contrast and feel of the images. It seems like film has a very special quality that digital can't seem to reproduce. I'd like to know others thoughts on this subject. Does anyone know why lager formts look so good, it's not a resolution issue it's somthing else. Here is a pic taken with a Zeiss Ikonta 521/2 to show what I'm talking about.
