Mamiya RB67 mix & match 65, 90, 127, 180
A bit of a strange situation here, I bought 2 kits to try to collect the 65 and 180, but I've given in and going back to Hasselblad, so they've all gotta go. I have 2 Kenko skylight filters and 2 mamiya caps; first one to buy a set gets to choose how much of that they'd like included. First to buy also gets their choice of a rear body cap and/or front body cap.
RB67 Pro-s body
RB67 body (some paint loss along lens mount end of bellow)
90mm 3.8 C (has slight fogging in a corner internally, but in the 9 months of using it, the imperfection hasn't been visible in results. Has a 'H-O' engraving from previous owner)
180mm 4.5 C
2x Pro-s 120 back
2x 120 back
Unmetered eye-level finder
Waist level finder
Standard focusing screen
5x5 grid focusing screen
As far as I can tell from results, they all have accurate shutter speeds, and no other mechanical issues. Havne't had light leak issues with any of the backs.
Not quite sure how to price these, so I am open to offers. An example pricing would be $550 for the Pro-S body, 65mm, and 127mm with waist level finder and 2 backs. However, please select a kit consisting of a body, 2 lenses, 2 backs, a finder, and screen so I'm not stuck trying to sell off individual items later on.
Pics coming soon.

I am curious about what drove your decisions to switch from Hasselblad to Mamiya, and then back again. Do you mind elaborating for us?
Good luck with the sale.
If you call it a "prime lens" because it's a fixed-focal length (i.e. not a zoom lens), then as Inigo Montoya said so eloquently, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
Lots of indecision, mostly. Started out with the Mamiya, and made the mistake of playing with one while visiting B&H. Picked up a Leica, and felt guilty having a Leica and Hasselblad for ~50mm equivalent, and sold off the Hasselblad first. Decided to use ~28mm and 85mm for 6x7 mamiya, but have still yet to ever take it out (student life impedes photographic funtimes ). On the digital end of things, I've decided to pick up the Ricoh GR and use that for my compact/pocket spot meter solution, and a Blad+80mm for the occasions I do want to use 120 film.

I am the other way. Have always been Mamiya and wanted to shoot Hasselblad. Started acquiring Hasselblad based on 70mm. Got everything in spades except a lens for hassie. 2 bodies, 2 wlf, 3 or 4 backs including a 70mm, lots of cassettes. Sold my RB with a bunch of lenses 180mm on down to 55mm a bunch of other goodies. Even a 70mm long roll back.
Just found out I could get a 70mm back for Mamiya. Never knew that.
Now I want Mamiya back and will keep my 70mm items and get rid of Hassie items.. Just need to find right deal.
Gonna point out that I'd ideally like to get this sold in only two sales- one package of body, screen, finder, 2 lenses, 2backs, and then another sale of what remains. Really not keen on doing a bunch of smaller, partial sales.
Gotta ask, what kind of student has the money to buy both Mamiya, Leica, and Hassleblad cameras on a "whim of indecision"?? Geeze...

Just a suggestion.
Why not pose this as a trade rather than posting your own stuff to sell on someone else's thread? Lol you both seem to want the opposite persons system.

I'll PM you.
I actually did a lot of research with one important exception. I never saw a short load 70mm back for Mamiya until I started coming on apug more often. I do have the Beattie Long Roll for Mamiya. I am not entirely positive, but pretty sure I have enough for my Jobo to process it all, but not the dedicated #2517. I didn't buy the whole Mamiya system based on 70mm. I bought it because a local camera store went out of business and he offered me a very good deal if I bought everything at once. I used that for four years before selling it to a local student. I can also say, it took me over a year to sell it all off. I don't do ebay.
