36mmx36mm digital back and 36mmx24mm DSLR

    A 36mmx36mm digital back costs about $10K. A Kodak DCS 14/x costs about
    $3500, but add the lenses (85/f1.4, 50/f1.4, 28/f1.4 and a 80~200/f2.8
    zoom) total would be close to $10K too.

    The problem with the 36mmx36mm back is the 1.5x factor, that makes me
    short of the wide angle (I have 120 format, 180mm/80mm/50mm). The
    problem with the 35mmDSLR is that I have to either leave the 120 format
    at home, or to carry the two monster systems.

    Can't make decision. Or maybe I should put aside the digital for a
    while?

    The solution would surely be larger back, at 36x49 mm. That gets you
    90% of your wide angle film. Is the problem that you really need the
    square format?
