    Hi Gang -

    As the title states; I *just* bought a new-to-me 120 back for my RB67 Pro-S (and looks to be in EXC condition) via the big auction site. The interesting thing is that it came with the *attached* Revolving Adapter!!!

    I pd $71 US for it and by the photos (of the *actual* item being sold), they both look in EXC condition. I called the Camera store and spoke w/the guy there and he confirmed that the mechanicals worked as they should, but maybe needed new light-seals (nothing new there...).

    SO, was this a "Good", "Bad", or "WOW - there's one born every second" price?

    It sounds like a good price. Are you confident that both the back and the revolving adapter are Pro-S models, rather than the older Pro models?

    As I expect you know, you can use the Pro backs and adapters on the Pro-S bodies, but you lose the double-exposure interlock.

    Thanks Matt -

    Yep, the photos show the Pro-S emblem on the back as well as the double-exposure lock - thereby ensuring that both the magazine back "cover" as well as insert are Pro-S. I'm pretty stoked as both are in much better cosmetic condition than my current set!!!

    In any event, i'm planning on re-sealing both just to be sure.
