    First. I'd like to say hi!

    Second I'd like to know if mamiya RZ67 owners are finding that the half press is crazy sensitive. I just bought mine and I noticed that I have to concentrate a lot when half pressing. The I actually wasted 3 shots trying to 1/2 press and meter before taking it because the shutter just went.

    Now just to give you an idea of what I was shooting before because who knows maybe the shutter button on the RZ67 is ultra soft.

    But I do own a mamiya 645 PRO TL and I have NO issue with that.
    I have a Canon 5D mark II and love that soft shutter.

    If it is the shutter it sounds like it'd be a basic issue, I hope I can send it in to my local repair place and have it done. I really want to put a roll through it.

    Cheers

    Alright. Thanks! I was wondering if there is a way to force the meter on without the 1/2 press?

    Cheers
