    ^^ Right on!! I don't use feeBay or Pay-me-Pal. In fact, I have no credit cards either. I hate all CC companies and those that revolve thier business around them.

    If I could only have one lens to start with for landscape it would be a 135 because that would allow me to continue putting my favorite combo together as I can afford to buy more lenses... 90, 135,...

    The Chammy will focus a 38mm SA XL @ infinity on a flat board with the standard bellows... I've done it. With the 100mm rail extension it will focus a Fuji 450-C to 20+ feet.

    As Al said... You can probably find a complete holder in nice condition for what one dark slide will cost... or just a little bit more. Then you'll have an extra slide plus other spare parts. :)

    Re: Shen Hao or Wista?

    I bought a used Chamonix 45N-1 and am having a new Maxwell screen professionally installed to deal with the focus issue. It'll be a darned fine camera once I have it back in my hands.

    ^^^ I disagree particularly if we're discussing 4x5 or larger. :) And "medium format" digital is still just too pricey. :(

    Thanks, Vinny. That's a good idea but time is too important to me right now. I can't afford to be tinkering at the moment. I just need things to work straight out of the box. :)

    No offense but not looking the same doesn't necessarily mean not looking as good. It depends on what you do in post processing in PS.

    What I want is a Director's Viewfinder with adjustable aspect ratios and long-range zoom that can accept a .5x W/A adapter and costs around $300 or less. The $600-700 ones are out of the running.
