    Are there any sources for the tools and
    instructions needed for repair of the RZ
    and it's lenses and backs? Dan

    tools for camera repair are available at microtool.com. You may check their site for repair manuals also. they used to publish(still do?) manuals.

    It looks as though they may have the tools.
    I think eBay is the source for the manuals. Dan

    I pulled apart a faulty back once and fixed a problem - a sort of ratchet system tooth had sheared off so I filed a new one - worked well for another year but now its a little crunchy and on one occasion didn't fully wind a frame - I no longer use it, but may well open it up again for a look-see

    As for lenses - scary business, I would like to be able to get some compressed air in there to clean up the dust tho :smile:

    good luck to ya

    I'm storing some diagrams on my site for a friend named Paul.
    They may help with some body / lens issues.
