    Well, I skipped the m645 and I ended up finding an rb67 with a 127mm on CL for $250. Absolutely mint. Its weight is beastly, but I think I'm going to have a lot of fun with it!

    Congrats.
    6x7 chromes are a sight to behold.
    Enlarging 6x7 aint too shabby either.

    Happy shooting!

    Beware though, it's nearly impossible to find an affordable quality 6x7 projector. I shoot a lot less chrome now because of that.

    Sorry, I think there may be some confusion. We're talking about portrait orientation - not portraits.
    The problem is that the 645 must be tilted on its side to get portrait orientation, the RB has a rotating back that allows the camera to stay upright. That makes the RB much easier to use than the 645 in portrait orientation.

    That is why I got a vintage folding camera -- Kodak Duo. I bought one of those (actually, two... but only one resulted) specifically because it was 645 in portrait-orientation. Besides, it has a mediocre triplet lens that seems quite nice for portraits as long as there is no intent to get close-up.

    I understand, but I rarely shoot in portrait orientation. So I don't value rotating backs very much. That's been a point I've made and I thought I was being clear, guess not.

    Depends on the 645. I'd much rather turn my 645 Pro with its winder grip on its side for a portrait shot than to hand hold an RB. The Pentax with built in grip and the ETR with a grip are probably as good or better.
