Thanks very much, Dave. I really appreciate these comments. Your site is wonderful.

I need to use the camera a bit but my thought right now is that I will concentrate on B&W. I am heavily invested in Nikon equipment (both film and DSLR) and am happy with that gear for color. I especially like Velvia and Provia in 35mm. This is more of an art camera for me and for thirty years I have wanted to try my hand on medium format B&W landscapes. The FP-4 is my starting point on this and preliminarily for processing and scanning, I like what I read here: http://www.digitalsilverimaging.com/

I would love to wet process on my own but I have have neither the room at home or an patient wife.
