    I just bought a Mamiya rb67 with two lenses (and lots of accessories) for $285, hopefully a good deal :smile:

    However, the price was due to a semi-functioning 180 mm lens. The shutter seems to work but there is a slight delay between when the shutter should have fired and when it actually does. The video below hopefully illustrates the problem:

    Is this a common problem? Is it easy to fix?

    Just needs to be cleaned... cost is around $90 for a lens CLA.
