I'm sure you can Denmark, that’s as long as you don't mind associating with the outcasts...

Mike, I had no idea that Voigtlander/Bessa had put out a 667 other than their folder released a couple of years ago. I'm looking at these images you've uploaded and the lens looks outstanding. I've been shooting MF with a Fuji BLG690 plus a Pentax 67. I previously was shooting a Bronica ETRS 645.

Like you I prefer the images from MF over 135. I'll have to keep a look out for a copy of this camera. I'd like to heft one around and look thru the viewfinder. I appreciate your time taken for the uploaded photos and write up!

Just did a quick roll with the 667W this morning. I had to go and stock up on more 120 film (Tmax-2 400). This is developed in HC 110 1:60 for 12.5 min

I like this as a stand alone photograph Tom. I'm curious what you use for a scanner.. this looks very good. I've a V500 Epson and I'm thinking about a V700

jan, for the 120 I use an Epson 750 Pro. Works well, though the negative holders for 120 film is less than ideal. You have to fiddle for a while to get the strips in place - and stay in place.
