I don't shoot film for the res.  I replaced MF film with a 1ds when it came out, but then went back to film for editorial work.  Its the look, is all.

This is the case with many filmmakers as well.  While I don't miss chrome at all, neg film can be really beautiful!

I've had the exact same evolution. I replaced my Pentax 6x7 with a 1Ds, then got a P25, and now I'm back to shooting as much film as I can. I could care less about resolution, it's all about the look and feel.

I shoot film for a similar reason. In the photography world digital cameras are everywhere, to be taken seriously as an artist (or just noticed) you have to be different, some people print on canvas or have other ways of making their work stand out. I use film as a way of distancing myself from the crowd of pixel peepers. I get that unique film look that a lot of them are going for and have to work less to maintain it.

I'm leaning more towards and AFD setup now. I have found someone in Australia that has a P25+ back for sale too. It's more than I'd like to pay but I guess it will be good for quite some years to come.

Are there any lenses in the Mamiya line to keep away from? Or any lenses that are particularly good?

I'll get a setup along the lines of a 55mm, 80mm and 150mm. I notice there is also a 45mm which is a little more expensive than the 55mm.

Hello,

The 45mm was my favourite.

Cheers

I use to use the mamiya 45mm, 55mm and 120 macro mostly. 
I recommend the 120 macro.  Super sharp and good price on the used market.

Actually, something worth asking just for interest sake, how much would it cost for an Alpa setup for the digital back?

I hadn't really considered it because I've always imagined they must be very expensive. However I've never seen a price on one before. They look too nice to be cheap.

"An Alpa setup" or a setup of any other good tech camera is a very broad category.

Pre-owned (e.g. Cambo Wide DS with adapter) might be less than $1500 used (without lens).

At the high end:

It's a surprisingly large ecosystem of at least a dozen bodies made by at least a half dozen manufacturers. So it's hard to be more specific. Working with a good dealer you can work your way through the variety of options pretty quickly.
