    Just got a mamiya 7 and noticed the significant improvement in the ability to load film over my Pentax 67ii. Now that I am debating selling my 67ii, I am looking a the mamiya 6 with a 50mm as an option. The Ustinov, is the mamiya 6 just as easy to load as the mamiya 7?

    Yes, the mamiya 6 is easy.

    I use a Pentax 67II system as my main camera, but use Mamiya 7 and Fotoman 617 for some work too.

    Fotoman easiest to load, followed by Mamiya, then Pentax 67II at bottom. After many years, I still find it a fiddle...!
