Free bump - the GW and GA Fuji series have awesome lenses, and are well recommended.

Bump - these are awesome cameras. You won't believe the results from a giant 6x9 negative. Plus for daylight fill-flash, that shutter syncs at every speed.

This is a great camera at a great price

I had one from the very early '90's to this past fall---I'd still have it if I had a darkroom. Superb negs from this camera....and far quicker and easier to use and process 120 film than large format film, yet this neg is pretty much 1/2 the size of 4x5, so you get many of the benefits of the larger format..

How many exposures do you usually get in a roll, 4 or 8?

You have a choice (see fourth picture). As 6x9 (eg you'd say the largest consumer friendly medium format) you could go 16 shots on 220 roll, 8 shots on 120 roll or 4 (panoramic like on 120)

I do not have a MF rangefinder yet. This sounds tempting, 6x9, huge!!!. Thinking about it.

Thanks a lot, guys.
Actually it is the easiest to use RF, that I have tried. Viewfinder is huge and focusing screen is large as well compared to my Zorky or Bessa.

Thanks.

I never really used the rangefinder---just used it as a viewfinder. Zone focus all the way, baby. Fastest focus system in existence---set it once, shoot all day.
