    Complete Mamiya 645 Pro medium format SLR outfit in outstanding cosmetic and functional condition, almost "like new". If you’ve been waiting to get the 645 Pro, or want to get into medium format, this is the kit. It’s only had about 20 rolls through it and that was in a studio.

    I just bought this kit and have a situation that forces me to sell it. I wish I didn’t have to!

    This sale includes:

    • Mamiya 645 Pro body with fresh battery. Manual film advance crank. Body is in fantastic condition.
    • 80 mm f1.9 Mamiya-Sekor C lens with cap. This is the fastest lens made in any medium format system. It’s known for its amazing bokeh. There’s even a Flickr group just for this lens. You can see examples here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/673994@N21/ These are going for $300+ on eBay right now.
    • AE finder. This aperture-priority AE finder offers both spot and average metering choices, as well as its own special auto-selection (A/S) function that switches between spot and averaged automatically to suit the shooting conditions. There is some extremely light bag rubbing on top. Barely noticeable, as you can see from the photos.
    • Split-image/microprism/ground glass fresnel focusing screen (standard one that comes with cam)
    • Film back with dark slide and 120 film holder insert
    • Op-Tech neoprene padded neck strap
    Additional bonus items:


    • Additional 120 film back. Literally brand new, never used. Still in box. See pics. Don’t settle for the beat up ones for $75 on eBay. This one is new, just as if you went into a store and bought it.
    • Motor winder WG-401. Literally brand new, never used. Still in box. This is the higher model than the 402. See pics. This one is new, just as if you went into a store and bought it.
    • Mamiya wrist strap. Brand new, never used. Shown in pics. This one is new, just as if you went into a store and bought it.
    • 20/20 Brightscreen with 45 degree split prism. This makes focusing that fast f/1.9 lens a snap.


    I just paid close to $950 for this kit – I’ll sell it here for $750.

    US sales only. No, I won’t part out the kit. Shipping will be $20 and I’ll pay the Paypal fees.
    I’ve sold many things here and on eBay (username: markolw) and have a 100% positive rating.

    The TL version of this is what got me into medium format and larger. This is a sweet setup for whoever buys it.

    Changed my mind and decided to keep this. It's just too nice a kit.

    That's right choice, honestly.

    I'd get this one if I didn't spend too much money for my current LF kit this month.

    Seconded.
    I use pretty much the same kit, and it's my medium format kit of choice.

    I know the feeling. I bought my screen from KEH. Last time I checked, they still had one.
