    Heck of a lot more practical though. An ETRSi with a metering prism and a speedgrip is almost as portable as a 35mm camera. Wish I had one!

    My outfit is an M645 with WLF and plain prism, with 55mm and 210mm lenses. I can carry it (and a meter) in the same bag that just fits otherwise EOS5 and 2 lenses. The problem is the weight - the 645 weighs much, much more. I prefer the Bronica, but the Mamiya was just too cheap! It's proved to be a trusty tool.

    The only thing that would put me off the Mamiya is the focal plane shutter. The Bronnie has a leaf shutter which would prove much more usefull for daylight fill in flash.

    That's true, although it means the Mamiya lenses are cheaper and have less to go wrong, and you can buy leaf shutter lenses anyway. But as I use it mostly for lanscapes, it doesn't bother me in the slightest!
