    Here I am selling a very usable 6x4.5 kit. I'd like $340.00 (see below).

    The Camera Body: a Mamiya 645 Super
    The Interchangeable Camera Back: a Mamiya 645 Super back, complete with 120 insert and dark slide
    The Finder: a non-metered Mamiya 645 Super prism
    The Screen: a standard (type E?) Rangefinder Spot/Microprism focusing screen, most likely supplied with the camera
    The Winder: a standard Mamiya 645 manual hand crank
    The Grip: a Mamiya contoured left hand grip with hand strap and connector that permits use of the on-grip electronic shutter release and on-grip hot shoe
    The Neck Strap: a Mamiya strap, including the somewhat hard to find Mamiya 645 Super/Pro clips
    The “Standard” Lens: a 70mm f/2.8 leaf shuttered Mamiya “C” lens - usable either with the included leaf shutter, or the camera’s focal plane shutter
    The “Telephoto” Lens: a 150mm f/3.5 Mamiya “C” lens

    All of this equipment functions well. I bought it all used (at various times, from several sellers), and have used it since. The body is my backup body, and the lenses are the focal lengths that I use the least.

    None of this equipment looks unused, but neither does it look to have been abused at any time. The screen has a little dust on it, but not much. There are small areas showing paint wear, and the camera shows signs of having been used on a tripod from time to time.

    I have never had any of this equipment serviced - I’ve just used it, and it has performed reliably.

    The lenses include front caps, skylight or UV filters, and at least one back cap. The glass is clean, in very good shape, but not pristine. The apertures are snappy, and the focus smooth. The leaf shutter in the 70mm lens works well, and sounds reasonably accurate (as does the focal plane shutter) but I haven’t had speeds tested.

    I’ll include two new batteries with the camera body.

    I would like $340.00 for this - either Canadian or US dollars (your choice). I won’t refuse to consider reasonable offers. I’d prefer to sell this as a kit.

    I would consider an offer that includes a Mamiya 645 80mm macro lens or Mamiya RB67 180mm “C” lens in partial trade.

    Shipping will be at the buyer’s cost.

    The Fine Print:

    Payment: Paypal only please. No “gift” option - I will absorb the cost. I’ll also pay 3% to APUG.

    Shipping: I will ship via Canada Post from V4K 2Z9, but must insist on a trackable shipping mode. I will gladly ship internationally, but will only put accurate values and description on the customs forms.

    All items sold AS-IS. FWIW, I have 100% positive feedback on ebay as mlkingeb (so far, buying only).

    Pics to follow shortly

    I would love it, but have moved out of acquisition mode. I might need to thin the herd a little myself.

    I will say that I had a 645 Super and it was a great camera. The grip is very handy and it seems that the price is great.

    Good luck!

    One further price reduction - down to $290.00 for the entire kit.

    Admit it, you are tempted!

    Sweet, I'm interested, carrying around a RB67 handheld is a bit much.

    I assume it syncs @ leaf shutter speeds too.

    Def want this pending shipping cost.

    The kit is still available, although I have three expressions of interest.

    thank goodness, Matt. Pay day is just around the corner and that 70mm was beginning its siren song for me. A LS lens has been on my radar for some time now for portraits in studio.
