    Definitely the Hassy 205FCC. I'd have chosen Contax but 6x6 is a really cool format, I prefer it to 6x4.5.

    I wouldn't choose a 1DS because then I'd have to upgrade my PC (faster CPU, more RAM, RAID disk array, etc) and spend most of my time on the computer. The I'd have to go broke spending on CF cards and microdrives, and other accessories which will be selling for half the price in 6 months. This isn't for me - I'm not a pro.

    No Leica for me since I got YSLee's Canonet... just as useful as a Leica, although it doesn't ooze quality. However I prefer the Canonet since it has programmed exposure, and can do flash sync at upto 1/500 sec.

    The 645 is nice but 6x6 is larger, and easier to crop.
    The Sinar... mmm... nice, but an enlarger will take up half my bedroom.

    Hi

    btw, FWIW i picked the Sinar. not because it's the most costly, but because it's large format

    Jed, you bored issit?

    anyway, i've always wanted a Hassy, but no real use for it for the time being... it's like one of those dream good-to-have things, like a Ferrari or Lamborghini.

    This is actually a reasonable poll: to see the desires. Here we go.

    By any means, I will pick up a 1Ds. And I know some other options are actually more pricy.

    This is not to start ANOTHER war between digital and film, be it 35mm/MF/LF. But I have personal reasons for making such decision. And we all know each has his own preference. So to anyone who disagrees with me, fine, that's your choice. But my voice here: digital for me, here and now!

    This is really a no-brainer. Door A is digital, 35mm and probably the easiest to use to get great pictures. I honestly wouldn't know what to do with the other prizes, including the Leica, which I would call a booby prize (what, no autofocus?).

    PS Does Door A come with a few "L" lenses as well?

    D will beat all the rest in terms of ultimate image quality. Only a 2x enlargement is required for an 8x10!

    I collected my prize from the "God of Sleep". Was told by him can only use the equipment only when he is around.

    Hey no LOMO camera ah?

    I mean who cares what it cost. Hipness and coolness with fake "talent" is priceless! You can't put a price tag on brainless peer acceptance! If you wanna be one of the "cool" people, you know you need the one in Door F!!!

    Heh. Since the Leica and Canon are the most popular, and without too much doubt providing the least image quality of all the five options, don't ever let me catch anyone in CS whinging about image quality again!



    PS. My own personal choice is Door F. Two EOS1D cameras with a 400/2.8L IS USM and a 70-200/2.8L IS USM. Heh. But then, that's for show producers only.

    Hey, like this then my choice should be Door G. 1Ds + 1D + 600/f4 USM IS + 300/2.8 USM IS + 70-200/2.8 USM IS.

    Yeah, but you're not a producer of the show.
