About me:

Was gifted a second hand Minolta rangefinder at 11yo. No manual, no Google, no money. I learned DOF, shutter speed, motion, flare, sharpness and film speeds at a time when you had to WAIT a week for your photos. Colour was too expensive!
.
Since then, I've always had trouble putting a camera down especially a FULL frame Mamiya RB-67 outfit :)
.
Semi-pro since the '80s. 6x7 and 35mm then, Micro four thirds now: A good compromise.
Pro results without bulk and weight to lug around.
.
Years ago, I recovered from "Equivalence Phobia" that so many suffer from, and find that people react better to a smaller setup and love the results.
.
Customers want results, not "format psychobabble".
.
Enjoy photography - not silly format arguments!
