(No Longer - got a 'blad) WTB: Bronica SQ Ai Kit with Lenses in Great Shape - Or a Mamiya RZ/RB67 Pr
I am looking for a Bronica SQ Ai kit with some lenses, ideally 80, 120, 150-180, perhaps 40-50. It should be in as ideal state as possible, Exc+ or better if poss.
Alternatively, I am also interested in a Mamiya 67RZ Pro II or the RB Pro S, also as a kit with some lenses, especially with metal rather than plastic shutters (or plastic if in great working order).
Why? I use my 4x5 a lot for lovely landscapes but I have started taking more portraits with studio lighting recently. I do those with a DSLR but I miss film in that application, while my trusted Ebony is just, well, a bit slow for the sort of portraits I have been taking. Yes, I tried a good few.
If you would prefer to dispense advice instead of a camera I would welcome that very much too.
Happy to pay by PayPal etc. Located in Ireland, Co Wicklow.
PS. I sure would be happy with a nice Hasselblad kit or a Rollei for the same money as those above.
i love my RB. i take it everywhere with me. KEH has several for between 250-300. get one. i try to get the pro S and the "C" lenses. all is great.
Thinking of selling my RZ67II gear - 50mm, 110mm, 180mm - winder - 3 backs I think (one 645) + an extra for polaroid - 2 backs and all lenses are MINT, other parts a little worn here and there but operationally fine ... Other bits included will come to mind as soon as I hit 'submit' - anyway, just not using it - couple of show stoppers: its in New Zealand, postage wont be fun and I'm quite fine keeping it so there's no rush sale and corresponding great deal for you. But make an offer and we'll see
