I had a Pentax 645 and loved it. It was a class camera and even I was able to take class photos with it! But, lets face it - it is now "yesterday's camera" Sell it and move on. A modern digital of 8Mp or better can produce a brilliant A3 print and you have all the advantages of digital photo editing.

If you are sentimental - keep it. If you are 'real' then sell it.

Good luck Phideaux

It seems like its a good time to be a buyer, but bad time to be a seller if you have higher end MF gear. I've always wanted a Mamiya 645AF, but they were WAYYY out of my price range. I see them listed in my KEH catalog used for around $700 now. Still out of my fun money range, but a lot closer. Same with Hasselblads. It would be hard to sell one and only get a fraction of what you had invested originally. Thats why I never sell anything!
