I am currently a 35mm photographer, but I am looking to get into medium format ASAP, or as soon as bank flow will allow. I recently read about the Kiev 88 SLR. The articles in both Shutterbug and Popular Photography said it was a copy of the traditional Hasselblad 6X6 body. I know perfectly well that the Kiev won't be a Hasselblad, but it did sound interesting. I have also read the Bronica SQ-Ai is considered to be a Japanese Hasselblad. Well I guess what I am really asking here is should I try to find a used medium format system from a larger and better known name or should I buy a new Kiev system for half the price? Thanks for the time. Any feed back is appreciated.
