I dove into the deep end of the pool today......I called Steve Hendrix and placed an order for the 503CWD-II kit with the 40mm lens. Yeow! I've never spent that much on a camera before....never thought I would, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get the kit with that 40mm lens. I think the whole setup will work nicely with the PME45 finder I bought a few months ago.
I'm going to be on vacation for 10 days in the last half of July (motorcycle trip thru Washington and Oregon.....looking forward to some hot and sunny weather for a change), so I asked Steve to hold off shipping the camera to me until the end of July. I hope to post a few shots from the CFV-II in August.
My thanks to the many folks here who have shared their images, experience and knowledge about MF DBs (and the CFV in particular). I also appreciated Steve's help and assistance (a real nice change from the usual mail order buying experiences I've had over the past 30 years). I've learned quite alot in just the past several weeks on this forum....thanks again!
