    My objection to the GSW690III is that it is not really wide.

    Find yourself a G690 or GL690 and the 50mm f5.6.

    I find the 65mm on my GSW690III plenty wide for a fixed lens, general purpose sight seeing camera. For me the focal length is good both for people and some scenery. Too much wider of a lens and it starts to become more special purpose. Of course everyone's milage will vary on that.

    Thanks, Roger. That's the London Eye from about 12 years ago now.

    Likewise, i have the 65mm (GSWIII) and 90mm (GWIII) versions and love them both.

    Beautiful negatives and lovely lenses.

    For me, "only 8 shots on a roll" would be a blessing.

    Yes it is. Coming from shooting large format, having to get through a roll, even just 8 exposures, is hard some times.

    I usually set my shots up and don't just snap away. 8 exposures is ideal, any more would be too much.
