Mamiya Love

A few weeks ago I got rid of my last medium format camera. I used to have four, but have slowly retired them or sold them because of their age and my unwillingness to sink money into repairing them. It can cost as much to repair them as to replace them. But, I've MISSED my medium format cameras. A lot. I love, love, love the look of a medium format picture. I love the quality of detail they show. I love how the picture is framed. (After being at PhotoPlus last weekend I SO wish I had $6,000-$8,000 to spend on a digital medium format, but that's a whole other post.)
So, tonight I bought a used Mamiya 645 off of eBay. I KNOW!
I can hardly wait until it gets here and I can crack open a roll of film. Oh that smell...
