Thanks Pan, he had an EOS3000 in the shop which I found too small for my plates of meat, and I found it rather awkward.
I'll see how I get on with the Eos650 and if it develops issues it's a bangernomics purchase so little to lose. He also had an EOS55 which was large. I suppose I'm really after the Goldilocks version...
Film amateur with a few rangefinders - Leica III, M2/M3, Werra 3 and Zeiss Super Ikonta 534/16 medium format.
Apart from that have a Rolleiflex 3.5F, the odd Minolta XD7, Hasselblad 500cm, a Topcon Super D and an Intrepid 5x4 large format (not the half of it but I am clearing them out, honest).
I do all my own black and white developing at home.
