I generally carry one camera, but no lenses. You've heard of free lensing? Well, I've invented no-lensing. The resulting images tend to be a bit samey and boring, but one the other hand, I don't get any problems with autofocus issues and vignetting. Is it me, or is this thread getting silly?

Lightweights.. try carrying 3 camera bodies and 1 lens between them.
Fortunately no one was around to hear the burst of laughter that ensued after reading that.

I'm scratching my head as to what could be the purpose of that. Quick access to different film speeds? The MF crowd worked that out decades ago with interchangeable backs.
Here's the classic image:

Yes.

We may need to start a new one when it's finally time for Photokina.

That would be a smarter idea. Of course this one is going to be silly.. Photokina is 2 months out.. and FF has been flogged to death, revived, then flogged to death again so many times it has received it's own forum for nonsense threads. It seems we have covered all ground at what possibly could be released at Photokina already. So threads like these will always turn to nonsense!

But I'd rather see silly nonsense than serious nonsense .. which tends to be par for the course here.

When Photokina comes we can get back to discussing serious nonsense.. the kind that really matters. And by 'really matters' I mean still doesn't matter but we can put our serious faces on at least.

Wow, the dark-haired woman holding the 6x7 looks uncannily like my mother when she was younger. She's from Jersey, too. I almost can't help but wonder whether she is a relation.

On an actual, serious note - it seems Ricoh has either absolutely nothing new to show at Photokina or the component supply manufacturers, NDA testers and marketing people are located in close proximity to a black hole.

There was a new member post today. Title was

Pentax 645Z [Edited: on finding link I noticed 'Pentax' was in the title]

the first and only post was

120mm F.4Macro.

Go figure.
