Thank you all for your replies. I've been doing a lot more research after reading them and I am still leaning towards blowing the budget and going for the 1V. I've seen it reviewed as the best film camera ever made for one and if it is the best then there is nowhere to upgrade to so it will be a one off purchase. I also like the weather proofing that is built in, I am getting more into landscape photography so being able to take it out in the snow or rain without worrying too much is appealing to me. I have a week to make a final decision so if anyone else has an opinion or view on the 1V I would be very pleased to hear it.
