    Hi
    I have become interested in older Mamiya-Six units. Not the modern RF version, but to 1940s-1950s folder version.
    If you have any for sale or trade, drop me a PM please
    Cheers

    Not sure where the best source would be in Austria :smile:

    MWclassic (.com) have have one for sale in the UK, been there for at least 6 months but it's not the original lens, price is good though.

    These are quite desirable cameras so usually get snapped up quite quickly, I've been looking although not hard enough for about 3 0r 4 years :smile:

    Thanks for the heads up..Is a Mamiya-Six III but, indeed, the front element should not be focussing as well...

    and... austRALia...:wink:

    cheers

    John, I know, but have a look at its condition... I like the guys at PACRIM, but... jeez.... cut the price down to 80 and its getting there.

    You might consider an Olympus Chrome Six. Mine actually came from Australia. Bill Barber

    The Olympus Chrome Six is a nice one, but am looking at Mamiya Six variants not as shooters, but for my collection..
