    Excellent point, hadn't thought of that. Thank you, I'll check that out. And that uld is a very sweet gem. Reason enough to get an RZ body.

    ......but then you can't do 6x8cm, so nothing's perfect!

    Yeah what's up with that mamiya?! Another niggle I have with the rz is that the instant film back doesn't produce a square image, the corners are cropped. Quite annoying.

I leave the lens wide open and use my finger to use the DOF preview lever to stop it down... another way to shutter.

    I have used the 110 on my RBs and also on 4x5 and 5x7 rigs. it's great fun to work with a lens that fast and with quite good coverage.
    Hey Keith,

    So does this mean if you fire the RB67 + 110/2.8, since you have no control over shutter, it will automatically fire at 1/400? This is interesting. However, the 110/2.8 would only work on the RB67 Pro SD because of the wider lens mount on it? It definitely won't fit on my RB67 Pro.

    Thanks for the info.

    Just get a 150/3.5 KL. Gives away nothing optically to the 110/2.8 plus you can actually control the shutter.

    Ah yes the pre-SD ones have a narrower throat, right? So goofy. I dont know whether you can get the 110 to fire at 400, I haven't tried, I just hand shutter. Anyway, if the 110 and 50 are goign to be important then I would advise simply to pick up an RZ body, which can take all (as far as I know) the RB lenses.

    A reasonable perspective. But the 110/2.8 really is a great lens for some work. And for similarly versatile field of view I would recommend the 127 KL not the 150. The 127 KL is also superb.

    How do you do 6x8 with my RB67? How many pictures in a roll of 120?

    Is it rare now? Too bad. I also have the mini sheet and plate holders for it. You might try and get your mits on a 6x9 back and see if it'll go on there, it wouldn't surprise me, it has that graflocky mechanism...

    Had the 127 KL and found it too close to the 90. Prefer the 150 to the 180 for portraits.
