Eh, then I guess I'll use a semi-legitimate excuse. 120 is too expensive for a walkaround camera?

Too expensive? What about 6x9? Thats half as many shots on a roll of 120 or 220 than 6x4.5! If you're shooting Portra anyway, just shoot 220 and it's like shooting 35mm with bigger negs. Most 645 bodies are adequately sized, unlike that monster Fuji.

Yeah but if I replace 35mm with 120, 120 will cost more. I rarely use the GW690 compared to my other gear. 220 costs even more... And I changed it from 75 Portra 30 Ektar to 100 Ektar 15 Portra. Ektar is pushable to 400 so it'll fare well.

Its not a replacement for 35mm though, just like 6x9 is not a replacement for 6x4.5. On 645, you can afford to shoot twice as much with still waybetterthan35mm results.

645 is not much more expensive than 35mm. Example: http://www.adorama.com/FJNA10036.html vs. http://www.adorama.com/FJNA100120.html

In 135, it's $4.25/36 shots = 11.8¢/picture. 120 is $2.69/15 shots = 17.9¢/picture. Look at other films and it's pretty consistent that 645 costs about 50% more. That is not at all unreasonable when you consider that you get such massively superior results. Also, you're actually getting more for the money when you consider that a roll of 120 has exactly the same amount of film as a 36-exposure roll of 135, yet it costs a lot less per roll.

Maybe later I'll get a 645 camera, but I have no money now. I still don't see why I'd want one still though.
I am now suddenly very very interested in the Pentax 67...

So huge. So awesome.

Last time I researched it was before I knew anything about 120 so I thought all the formats had the same negative size... (yes you can kick my man sack) Now I realize, holy crap, 105 f/2.4 6x7 is pretty close to 50 f/1 35mm! Obvious that is sexy for me. 150 f/2.8 will also work. This will replace the 85 1.4 for sure.
