I started with a Hasselblad 501 and 60mm Zeiss lens. Within 8 months I added Wista 4x5 with 2 lenses and extras and also a very special Szabad 8x10. And I had no intentions of ever touching LF. Silly me!
In a few days I will be going out shooting with the Wista in Eastern Montana and we've had highs of -3F last few days. Which I bet seems tropical for you. But I will make sure to think of you when I'm cursing at my numb and useless fingers
