    I have a Pentax 6x7 which I love, it's also my fave medium format camera. Definitely get one, they're quite affordable these days as well.

    Just to keep things open I will consider a Mamiya RB67 with 90mm lens and a 150mm or 180mm. A prism and some filters would also be good. I don't care for extra backs, one is fine as I have no need for swapping film types.

    Got an RB with a 90, a 127, and a 180 that I am thinking about selling. Also have a 250 with a busted diaphragm that can be shot, but will likely underexpose a tad due to one lame aperture blade that closes down a bit more than the rest.

    What kind of Wista do you have? You have pix?

    I know you think the RB is unwieldy, or whatever you think, but it is really a superior system to the Pentax 67 in nearly every way. Unless you are just stuck on the fact that the P-67 looks like a big 35mm, or need super critical film plane flatness (which you do not, for 99% of what most people shoot), the RB is the way to go, given the market for both systems at this time. The P-67 really does not handle any better IMHO, and they are also more expensive. I like them a lot, mind you, and would love to have a system, but there are many advantages to an RB for what most people shoot.

    The main point, however, is that the P-67 really doesn't handle any easier to me. I would not agree that it is the better hand held camera.

    Not trying to sell ya...just talkin'.

    Yes, for the third time.....whats worse is that I realized what it meant 10 minutes after I made the post, while walking onto the bus.

    I had an RB67 for a bit, loved it, loved the lenses, will probably get another at some point in the future, but at the moment, I'm too much of a poor student to afford two 6x7 systems and I find the P67 to be more portable and a far faster solution for the sort of street work I like to do. Were I a landscape man or a studio shooter, I'd have held onto the RB.
