Your Holga is designed around the Sunny 16 rule. So, you've be using it all along.

Hah! You are correct sir, I lose again.

Either way, I'm getting myself more and more pumped - been looking through the "post your medium format pictures" thread. Some nice shots in there - wish there were more posted with the 75 2.8 though.

must be a misunderstanding—I have no Holga, only the 645 / 645N (and more recently the K-x).

It is your 6x7 I envy, quite apart from the pictures you've taken! Not sure I can carry it though (and having Dupuytren may influence any future temptation, and there have been a few....)

And indeed, if I can carry it all along, I'll use the K-x to try things out

You're right. I got the comments mixed up. Sorry

I saw a test report a few years ago that concluded a full frame Canon DSLR had roughly equivalent IQ to a Pentax 6X7. Would that make a contemporary cropped frame DSLR equivalent to a Pentax 645? Perhaps.

Oy. I probably shouldn't say this, but now I'm considering switching things up.

Don't know how to transition this, but has anyone had experience with the mamiya 330 ($250) or bronica sq ($400)? (I think I'll miss the holga's square too much with the 645.. and I like to keep images full frame. weird, i know. )

As a side note, one of the potential benefits I see to the bronica, I can use the lens to make a tilt/shift for the k7/k20.
