Good to know, I just did a quick search and notice some comments about people "adapting" them to their Canon DSLRs. I may have pick one up.

Really? Buy online, a friend of mine has a Mamiya 645AF he got from Keh in "BGN" condition (like new) for 500 for body and back. Lenses are cheap.

You could do manual focus medium format, as foothead mentioned, for south of 400 bucks. If you want to make bigger prints than you can with 35mm, MF should be a go-to. 6 x 4.5 puts 32 exposures on a 220 roll, and it's barely more expensive than professional 35mm film.

I'm not interested with AF on film. When i'm using film, i'm careful, slow, and never photographing anything that's moving fast at all.

That's all well and good, but there are times when AF can be useful. 645AFs are awesome to handle and shoot with, compared to their MF counterpart.

I suppose you could practice at Wal-Mart, but you're likely to get some strange reactions.
I think you misunderstood me. I wasn't going to photograph in/around walmart. That would be dumb. I was going to do it on my way there, as i walked around town. But just my luck, a few minutes after i had posted, it started downpouring so i didn't end up going.

I think it'd be easier to say "S" screen, 1 series is Ec-S, 5D is Ee-S, 5DII is Eg-S, 40-60D is Ef-S. But then again, it will get really confusing...

But all my pictures are of my friends and such. It'd be sorta creepy. And I forgot to bring the M6 cause I woke up sort of late.

Wha? You use all that Leica gear to shoot pics of your friends in school?
post #15770 of 29551
Wat. I do have Leica shots on my flickr, in fact the first few pages. Digital is for friends, FILM IS FOR SERIALS.

Also, I only shoot sports because I have to. I wouldn't own a 120-300 if I wasn't on the school newspaper. But I stay because we're the best in the area, it's a free A, and we have AJC (Angry Japanese Cougars).
