    HAHA - I get it now.

    I shoot more 6x6 than anything else, but I do like 6x7 too. That's pretty much the extent of my medium format experience...

    I would suggest the Mamiya 645, love the sound of the shutter.

    Me, too! And I've enjoyed the 'hard to break' feel of the whole system.

    I used to shoot 4X5 and an RB67. Since I retired, I can't afford to pay the boy to carry these around for me, so I moved to a Mamiya 645 Pro TL and a Voigtlander in medium format. The 645 has a variety of lenses and I'm pretty happy with the "small" film size - even tho I miss the larger 4X5 sometimes.

    I picked up a Mamiya Pro TL "kit" from a Japanese dealer last year. Since, I've added most of the lenses, from wide, to telephoto. It's a superb system, and supplements my 35mm and large format nicely. The prices for the Mamiyas, especially the Supers and Pros are great.

    The Hasselblad 500CM was a consideration, but the prices are still on the steep side. They do offer flexibility when you can get a 645 back for them.

    I also use a Mamiya C330s for 6x6. The TLR's are really good deals, since they're far less popular than any of the medium format SLR's.
