    Be careful of the front element, and your shadow ?

    The RB extension tubes seem fairly plentiful as well.

    I keep musing about finding a beater RB body and seeing if I could add tilt to it. Wouldn't that be cool?

    yes it is the C version. I was very happy to finally see it at a price I could afford! It was the main piece of equipment I have been looking for for a while. No longer will I have to use the 35mm camera if the shot requires a wide angle lens.

    yes I have been carrying my FM2 when I go out with the RB in case I need the 28mm lens. It will be nice now to be able to take just the one camera for shooting MF stuff (and the backpack still weighs under 18lbs!)

    Oh man, 6x7 wide angles will make you pleased for waiting for the right price.
    Patience is a virtue.

    Have fun.
