Outcome of the Quest: I've been following a number of auctions for 2X3 Graphics and filmbacks, Kodak Medalist IIs and assorted folders. I also contacted Ken Ruth and he kindly gave me some advice on Medalists. Although I was very interested in getting a Medalist II, the limited availability of the versions that I wanted, their price-points and odds of needing servicing finally led me to buy a Fuji GW690 Professional - basically going back to where this whole idea started. However, given the stories that have been told in this thread, I think it is possible that I may yet become acquainted with some of those other 6X9 options....
