I'm not a camera snob, but I do believe in buying professional-quality equipment and keeping it. I've had my Rollei, my 35mm cameras, and most of my view camera lenses for 30 years. I once bought a Sinar F2 based on Sinar's reputation, didn't like it, sold it, and bought a good wooden view camera.
It's not what's on the label that counts. It's more about what's between the ears.
