    Either or, with preferably an 80mm f/2.8 lens to get started. (or any other good portrait length lens)

    Waist level viewfinder preferred, but prism viewfinders work as well.

    Anything within the ballpark of $300-400.

    Thanks!

    Looked recently, and really couldn't find much of a good selection there. And want an outfit all together, so I don't have to mismatch parts. And what brings more joy than dealing with your fellow APUGer? :D

    Look again. Right now they have five SQ-A bodies, an SQ-B, an SQ-Am, and three SQ-Ai's. You can definitely get what you want within your price range.
    There's no real advantage to buying an outfit, as Bronica stuff interchanges well. There are a few incompatibilities, like the SQ-A's AE finder wont fit the SQ, and the Ai's crank won't fit the earlier models. But waist level finders, plain prisms, screens, Speed Grip, etc. work fine.

    Go to www.tamron.com/bronica/
    Go to 'SLR Camera Archives', then 'SQ Guide' for info on different models in the SQ line.


    KEH's inventory goes up and down constantly. They often have no GS-1's, yet right now they have six.
