amidst the turmoil of the past few weeks, i still managed to trigger-finger-purchase this:
going to develop everything myself, and use it instead of my nikon (except for setting up lights and warming up the model) from here out - see how long this lasts. i sold my old hasselblad 6x6 last year, but this system has better lenses. and the build and features on it for the price are unreal.
Mamiya 645 Pro with Power Drive grip,
couple 120 backs for B&W, a 220 back for color film, a polaroid back.
80mm f/1.9 (basically the depth of field of a 50mm f/1.0)
55mm f/2.8 (depth of field of a 35mm f/1.4)
just thought i'd share. and see if i'm crazy for going backwards, what with the D4 and all.
