    OMG...

    I would go for the new Phase One DF Mark II-IQ200 Kit and the Schneider 100/2.0 LS lens.

    Sexiest? Leica M9P with Noctilux-M 1:0,95/50 mm ASPH.

    Ooh. What a useful challenge... just when I'm embarking on cutting down my dry box.

    Black M6 with 28mm Elmarit, and Portra 400 film. Nice and compact.

    Oops. Didn't realise this was medium format room. In that case, Contax 645 with Planar 80mm, and Portra 400. Mmm.

    Re: One Camera, One Lens!

    One camera, one lens and still stay in business? Hasselblad H4D/200 and HCD 35-90.

    Personally? Leica M9P Chrome with Chrome retro-design 50/1.4 ASPH

    Since I like mixing business and sex , Leica S2P and 120/2.5 APO.

    This. And 5 inserts. And a handful of batteries. No grip. With Nikon DK-17M magnifier.

    Alpa TC + HR 32mm + IQ 180. One big advantage is that I already own this setup. Also reasonably sexy in an S&M kind of way.

    Re: One Camera, One Lens!

    Hmm. Well, I bought a Voigtländer Nokton 50mm f/1.5 ASPH recently and so I'm revising my 'one camera, one lens' choice to the M9 with that. I still love the M-Rokkor 40mm f/2, but I think the coin toss of the moment would have me holding the Nokton if I couldn't have both.

    Ah, fickle fickle me!

    If I were to choose a 35mm it would be M4 + (converted) 45/2 Planar.

    That's an interesting "35mm" lens... ;-)
    Is the Planar 45/2 actual focal length shorter than the nominal 45mm?

    Well I chose a 645 earlier in the thread; for a 35mm body it would be the M4.

    The 45/2 Planar is actually 46.9mm

    Re: One Camera, One Lens!

    I think I've changed my mind. Any 35mm camera with this lens:



    Yes, it's heavy, yes, it's manual focus only, yes, it's made for cine, but I think I could live with all of that

    Expensive? Yes, it's bloody expensive as well.

    Jorgen, isn't the image circle of this lens too small for the 35 format? As for the one camera/lens, for me that'd be the S2 with the 120 'rit :-)

    "One of the key features of the Compact Prime CP.2 lenses is the full-frame coverage on 36x24 sensors. In this way, the complete angle of view is fully employed and the lenses will remain compatible with future cameras employing this sensor size. "

    "Another key advantage of the entire Compact Prime CP.2 series is the availability of inter- changeable mounts for PL, EF, F, MFT and E."

    Carl Zeiss Press Release: CP.2 15/T2.9 and 135/T2.1

    But of course, for most kinds of photography, a Sony A99 with the ZA 135mm f/1.8 would probably be a more practical solution. Not nearly as cool though

    Re: One Camera, One Lens!

    Simple!!!

    One camera: Rolleiflex Hy6 w/ Leaf AFi-II 12

    One lens: Schneider Xenotar 2.8/80 PQS


    That is what I use 99% today, while my only other lens to fit it, a Zeiss Distagon 50 FLE is largely unused, until I go out and shoot landscapes again.

    Why this choice? Because I own it. Yes and no: Hand down best camera body in medium format today and best image quality in digital today. Thus will hold up best against coming camera bodies (Phase One etc) and future digital backs and all other future digital cameras. (that was also my consideration when investing in it...)

    For landscapes though... still scraping for an Alpa...

    This will be my one-camera, one-lens kit this year, probably (just waiting for the body to be delivered):

    NEX 7 with CV 35/1.7 or CV 35/2.5 or MS Perar 35/3.5—whichever lens gives best IQ vs portability/flattish form factor.

    Anders, could you post an image of the Rolleiflex setup, please?

    Just so's you know, I have tried a current version 35 lux on my nex7 and at f8, for medium and longer focus distances, you can barely tell the difference between it and the kit lens at 50mm at 50% on screen, roughly equivalent to a 200dpi print...

    The kit lens is frighteningly good isn't it? . . . . . . . but my NEX7 is still sitting in front of me with a 35 'lux and a Hawks adapter (the kit lens just isn't that good at f2 :face smack

    Also, and I don't care what anyone else says, the 2010 35 lux has such pronounced field curvature that focussing mine is witchcraft anyway. If you want white magic, the NEX EVF is the best way to go.

    The m9 is looking horribly inadeqate these days. Great sensor for low ISO work and amazing glass, but getting and keeping it calibrated to a bagful of lenses seems to be for people who are lucky with gear or who like tinkering. I am neither!

    Kit,

    Rather than grab my iPhone for a snap;

    Leafs neue 56 Megapixelkamera AFi-II 10 lieferbar - Bildergalerie - 2009/04/SideB_WL_tilt.jpg - Vollbild

    Rolleiflex Hy6

    Staring at the 6x6cm focus screen through folding viewfinder and then inspect on 6x7cm Leaf display is in some ways like nirvana. The rotating sensor works super, and the tilt display is a clear plus.

    Have had a ball at amateur shoots in Shanghai last 3-4 months with the setup. See attached or my Chinese blog http://my.poco.cn/id-64555183.shtml

    Best regards,
    Anders

    P.S. Never intended to get Hy6. Was looking at Hassy V to escape the pina of Mamiya 645. Handling the Hy6 easily convinced me. It feels as what a modern version of Hassy V should be. The Xenotar 80/2.8 PQS is the sharpest and most wonderful character lens I have owned. Order of an Alpa is obvious on hold... . Also worth to mention, my combo easily fits in a small bag on my shoulder. Folks with Nikon, Canon and the like show up with big bags to the photo shoot gatherings... . The setup makes me really enjoy and focus on photography rather than struggle with yet another gear. I very much enjoy!!!

    Re: One Camera, One Lens!

    It really varies depending on what you want and how you get into it. The camera body isn't too bad, and you can get a used lens for not so so much. Also, a lot of the older PQ lenses (manual focus) are not so pricey and work very well with the Hy6. Focus conformation is a breeze. The real trick is digital or film (can do either) and in digital, which back do you go for? That pretty much is more than half the price, all in. Its hard to find a used Leaf back, but if you can get one with the rotating sensor, you'll never look back.

    Re: One Camera, One Lens!

    I think Olympus EP-1 + 14mm f2.5 is my choice for price/weight/quality.
    Another may be:

    Film:
    - SLR: mamiya 645 proTL + 50mm f4.0 shift
    - TLR: Rolleiflex 2.8F whiteface planar
    - RF: Mamiya 7II + 43mm

    Digital:
    - SLR: Olympus EP-3 + 14mm f2.5
    - TLR: I don't know how to put a back in Rollei ^^"
    - RF: M9-P + 35mm lux

    Kit,

    It looks as you are in Australia, correct? No idea who, or if anyone, sells there. I got mine in Hong Kong;

    Livecoal is the agent of Rolleiflex for Hong Kong & China ROLLEIFLEX HY6 KIT SET + AFI-II 12 (80MP)

    Buying from one of their dealers gives a better price, here is where I got the Hy6;
    PRODUCTS :: Leaf Afi-II 12 Set (with Hy6 Kit set)

    My Leaf back is from Gavin Hui at FounderGlobaltech;
    Mamiya Leaf Partners

    If you buy a back from Gavin he helps with good price on the camera set also. He gives 500% support and willing to help with just about everything. I took delivery at my back from Gavin at a convenient coffee shop in Hong Kong . Do mention my name, not that he will give me anything but because he is a super guy in support and doing great work!

    Best regards,
    Anders

    Jono, there's something wrong with your typing. For sure you meant f/1.4 Variocron, didn't you?

    I am afraid that you are demonstrating your unfamiliarity with Leica terminology: an f/1.4 would be a VarioLux; a VarioCron would only be an f/2.0.

    By the time the M12 will be on the market , the Leica terminology might have changed .

    That's what happens when I post too early in the morning. It should of course have been an f0.95 Varionoct

    Re: One Camera, One Lens!

    Alright I previously posted an M9 (or upcoming M10 with increased ISO performance) with a Noctilux. Let's face it, I'll never be able to afford the Noctilux.

    So I'd be happy with another lens that I also can't afford, a Summilux f/1.4.

    Failing that, a Voigtlander f/1.1.

    Rollei Hy6/AFi body and AFi-ii 12 back with the 90mm schneider APO Macro would be my choice, but probably I'd be just as happy with the schneider 60mm curtagon, 50/2.8, 80/2, or 110/2.

    One camera: Hasselblad focal-plane body + 80mm

    Sexy camera: Hasselblad focal-plane body + 80mm

    (focal plane for a bit more versatility, but just about any V-Series would do)
