I too prefer the revere (or even better - the wollensak) to the realist..I sold my 2.8 when I got the revere (cept now that I picked up a custom - who knows)

I really like viewmaster myself and wish there was a way to keep that dang cutter sharp and in spec

and - duplicate the slidefilm before cutting so I could make small runs of subjects for the heck of it

I bet it can be done digitally now with some kind of scanning and imaging to film chain
