The best camera in the world

I had some neighbours round for drinks last night and one of them, an ex-model married to a footballer remarked, 'Oh you use Pentaxes, they're the best cameras in the world. I used to work with a guy who used them, Sam Haskins'

He used a 6x7. Mentioned in his blog Here

My business partner in my agency had one of these with 3 lenses - I hated the thing, unwieldy, clumsy and noisy in my view.

My partner swore by it and hated with equal force my Hasselblad outfit. Over-priced and poncy in his view!
