<What do you Leica shooters (trying to stay somewhat on topic) like for MF work when forced away from a 24X36mm image? Carpe Lumen, Michael E. Berube> Michael - I use a 6x7 Fuji GW670III - it is a rangefinder, and relatively cheap, about $1700 Canadian complete with the fixed 90 mm lens. I find it gives great shots, but sometimes I have a problem with the rangefinder, particularly in low light. The rangefinder is not as sophisticated as the Leica, not sure why. Because of the low light problem, I am also considering the GA645Zi,, it has a flash accessory on a bracket raised about a foot above the camera, this would be of great help in my family portrait shooting, where I am required to use MF, and the autofocus would be great with small children and dogs, cats, parrots etc. Hugh Thompson - not yet Leica equipped, but working on it, and loving the LUG!
