I'd like to try it, experience the image quality, make a couple big prints, but not be in to tune of a nice used car.

There's plenty of medium format gear that'll do what it does, and better, just not as small. The Fuji GW690 will give you a 6x9 negative in 35mm equivalent focal length, it's definitely a hell of a lot cheaper and the lens on it is pretty amazing.

I thought about this, but I prefer 6x7 aspect ratio. 6x9 is good for landscapes, but would be awkward for most portrait format shots. I could crop, but it will waste film.

Who am I kidding though? I'm not getting back into medium format film. I'm only set to scan 35 mm and I won't print big enough for it to matter.
