    I have to check KEH for their UG-rated ug-leea stuff.

    What is the chance anyone has a trashed RB67 lens that's too far gone to repair? Or already took one apart?

    I want to find a mount (bayonet, I presume) for an RB67 for research (lens hacking & to have a machinist friend take a look for adapters). For lenses not intended for RB67.

    Thanks

    I have a 127mm with a bad case of jock itch that I never use now I have an RZ/110mm - I have been meaning to sell it, but you are probably looking for a paper-weight (i.e. free ...) right ?

    With as much fungus etching and dust inside, it still manages a nice photo

    1) At first I thought jock itch was the Mamiya equivalent of Schneideritis, but I got it - fun-fun-fungus.

    2) Perhaps PM would be best way to discuss your price - I do tend to like doing things the hard way, but a lens with shutter that works decently would make the project more usable. The hacking part is half the fun.

    3) I have a PM offer of parts from a totally frozen one, so that might solve the hack needs, and yours may solve the functionality part.

    I haven't shopped much yet but what you want is probably the reality check...doesn' tmuch matter what other people want for theirs!

    Thank you

    ---------
    I have a complete RZ67 w/ 110-2.8 lens. Is the mount the same as the RB?
    Mine looks good, but is completely locked up due to a bad case of moisture in the now defunct shop where it once lived. I will trade it for any good looking non-working name brand 35mm SLR with lens for my cheapskate collection.
    If interested, email me at Lmatthew@indy.rr.com

    I think RZ has 105 mm flange distance vs 112 for RB.
