Why do you have to sell the second Mamiya? That I do not understand. A back-up body and lenses is invaluable to have.

I love my Leica. And I love my Pentax KX SLR equally. The 'Leica thing' wears off pretty quickly, and it becomes a reliable box that holds film. In the end, it's the pictures that matter. If you think you can make better pictures with the Leica, then go for it. If not, then why not keep what you've already got? You're just making it more complicated with two different formats and cameras. What purpose does it serve?
I say must cause it will make me feel better =) I have too many cameras and am starting to sell most of them, but I would still like to have a good 35mm system. I dont have a real need for a 2nd 120mm system, I already have a mamiya rb76 and a Rolleiflex 2.8 so instead of having them just sit there I would rather it go to someone that would use it. I guess the real reason im trading it because the trade would benefit me if I would like to flip it if I dont use it as much as I thought since leica's would be easier to sell. the other reason was that while I was deployed I bought tons of 35mm film and its just sitting there and would like a camera that doesn't compromise on quality when it comes to 35mm film. If im not making sense then just punch me in the face and knock some sense into me lol...
