I keep telling myself the same thing, but like you I really enjoy working in 
the wet darkroom.

With the price of film cameras so low, I have moved into MF by picking up a 
Hassy kit and two Rollei TLRs.  My Rollei are a 2.8F Planar and a 2.8D 
Xenotar.  The Rolleis immediately went out for CLAs and new Maxwell screens.

Of course then I had to upgrade my film scanner to take MF, ouch.

Hey, life is short and its only money.
