Hi all,

I am a pro photographer who is about to start a big documentary on Kodachrome slide film as a farewell. It should take me about 2-3 years to do it. I have hundreds of rolls of all speeds now. In 2003 I switched the digital end of things to Canon for full frame. I did keep one FM3A and 3 AIS primes. Well, I have been building a *SICK* arsenal of Nikon film gear to shoot niche projects like this one. Up until about an hour ago, I had built my kit to two FM3A's and 6 primes.

Then I decided to keep one of the brand new FM3A's in collector level condition, I had better get a good but used F4S. When I found this, I just about fell out of my seat:

With a Kenyon KS-6 Gyro, a full Hasselblad Xpan system and now this, I have a system that goes far beyond my wildest dreams!!

Kodachrome, here I come!!
