Yeah I got that point. It was well made too and thanks for the video link.

I think the truth is like anything: if you have the money then buy a range of cameras and lenses to suit every particular job.

If you can't afford that or it's otherwise unrealistic then just go for the best you can afford at the time and concentrate on great lenses and great technique.

Thanks all for your input it's been useful.

8x10 has no IQ advantage over 4x5 .... none. And
very little IQ advantage over 6x7 or 6x9cm rollfilm
formats. So why shoot 8x10 ? Only two reasons:

1. Artistry. Contact prints have a distinct look that
no enlargement can approach. So if you want 8x10
contact prints you gotta have 8x10 film.

2. Publication. Reprographics procedures favor use
of originals that can be shot at 1:1 ratio.
