Thanks voodoocat and e_!! And can you tell me voodoocat, how does the Kowa brand compare to say the Mamiya brand? Is it as good or better, or what? Is it a less expensive brand? And if an 80mm is equal to a 50mm, would a 150mm be equal to a 120mm in 35mm, and so on? Thanks again!

The Kowa is considered the cheap mans hasselblad. Some people swear by them and some prefer to stay away. They have a pretty loyal following and it is much cheaper than Hasselblad.

As far as focal lengths are concerned, I'm not exactly sure. It has something to do with the length of the lens. It takes a longer lens because the negative is bigger.

Hi Shutter Bug

I was in Paducah over the Memorial Day weekend.
Have some family in that area.

Do you know any Jarboe, Shaw, Mayes or English

Glad I could help. Be sure to share with us your choice if you end up purchasing a medium format system. Once one of my guitars sells I am going to get my own.
