    Hurry up and buy it before the person selling it changes his mind.
    Easy, ask your wife.
    At this low price, are we sure this isn't a sale by a vengeful or disgruntled wife?

    Yeah it is a heavy camera buit that doesn't mean it can't be hand held.. I do it all the time for street n other shoots.

    non metered is a problem???? REALLY???? Metered prisms are never reliable nort accurate.. get a hand held meter!

    Yes if it is a shot camera.. I mean can't be fixed.. then walk away. But if a CLA is all she needs n probably does.. GO FOR IT!

    Many of these old pro cameras have been abandoned so now that they are turning up in the hands of amature cheap skates.... a CLA is not a death sentence!

    Old taxi cabes ran for 500,000 miles. why? they got regualr maintenance whether it needed or not.. same is true for these cameras.. they go on till someone kills em with neglect.

    I'll take it if the CLA is the worst part of the deal.

    Do not do it, send me the sellers information, I will lift the load off your shoulders. Or just do it.

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”

    You'd have to be nuts not to be in your car on the way to pick up that system now. If you sell the spare body and factor in the cost of the film--the system is close to free.

    Yes. Put a left hand grip on it and I can carry it around all day.

    Sure it can be hand held. So can a refrigerator. Doesn't mean I want to do it. Sure it's workable for a while but if you MAINLY shoot handheld I at least would be happier with a smaller, lighter camera.

    Metered prisms are never accurate? Nonsense. The AE Prism for my Mamiya 645 is as accurate as any of those in my 35mm cameras. Unless you were talking specifically about the ones for the RB? I can't speak to that.

    I agree that old mechanical cameras last a long time and the price of a CLA wouldn't be a deal breaker for such an otherwise great deal though.
