John,
Thank you for reaching out. =) I worked at a camera shop from 1999 to 2003 and am pretty familiar with many of these cameras. I was never a big fan of the 6006, 8008 type cameras. The always seemed a little "clunky" to me. I prefer the smaller, mostly metal MF bodies.

But... THANK YOU for your kind and generous offer. =) I truly appreciate it. Also, sending you a PM about something.

Again, APUG is the best.
