    WTT 35mm Gear, flash, lens

    In lieu of trying to obtain a MF system, I thought I would ask here first, thereby saving some aggravation with most auction sites. I would like to venture into MF. I have a Nikon F5 camera in the box with manual, it's in excellent condition with no issues with an SB600 and SB80DX in the box. The SB600 is like new, rarely used. I also have the MC33 cable and software, the MH30 for the F5. The lens are a Nikon 105 F2.5 AIS, glass is excellent, no marks, a little dust inside. A Nikon 300mm F4.5 AIS that I just had CLA'd by Focal Point and they did an excellent job. The aperture blades had oil on them. There is no marks on the glass, and aperture is snappy. I'm looking for a RZ67 Pro II setup if anyone is interested. Not sure how to post pics here, but I can upload to flickr. Thanks for your time.

    I bet you'll love the RZ. I've never shot one, but I love my RB67 Pro S. It's my main shooter. I don't know if you have your heart set on the RZ, but if not, you might want to consider the RB67. No electronics to go wrong and the prices can't be beat. One of the cheapest, most versatile camera systems out there.

    Anyways, good luck.

    That is a thought bushpig. A friend of mine has the RZ and that's the one I have shot with a few times. Images are awesome to say the least. I can print b&w in my darkroom, but the color is tricky scanning at least for now. A little more experience might help. Do you feel that the images from the lenses for the RB are as good as from the RZ's newer lenses? I'll have to search for a comparison of the two systems. Thanks

    I have both the RB and the RZ and image quality for both is excellent. Lenses for the RB can be used on the RZ as well so you could swap lenses with your friend. You only lose auto focus when using the RB lenses on the RZ.

    Thanks guitstik. I was unaware that the RZ had auto focus? Found a few flickr groups with a good comparison image wise.

    Autoexposure?

    Yeah yeah that's it. I don't have any RZ lenses as all of mine are for the RB so I still do everything manually.

    guitstik, do you use a metering prism or separate light meter? Incident or spot metering?

    The RZ's a great camera, only a bit too big and heavy to drag around too long or far. That can be offset by carying fewer lenses, or other gear.

    The prism finder is nice but heavy. I always prefered to use a handheld meter and the waist level finder which is also easier to focus accurately.

    Good luck with it.
