    Dunno. Throw the paperweight parts away and re-evaluate.

    Polaroids - gone.
    220 backs - gone or will soon be
    Ever use a metered finder on an RB? Not to my liking - gone.

    Then realize the light seals will probably need redoing in the remaining backs.
    If the bodies were wedding photographers tools, they can be quite worn. The fiddly little parts of the rotating back plate can need a bit of coercing. Worn interlocks are a PITB.
    Chances are at least one lens needs a CLA.

    If it were my 450, it would wind up looking more like a used 4x5. Or a new to me M series lens for my 8x10.

    And yes, I have a ProS with all those lens and more. (50,65,90,127,150SF, and 180).

    Just my opinion,

    Buy it if you will use it

    Don't buy it if you're just going to get it because it is a "good deal"

    And FWIW I prefer my RZ67 to my 501CM :P

    Polaroid is not gone - well it is but the Fuji instant films are great and work fine in the backs. How long they will be around us anyone's guess of course.

    Tease Teasey Teaser!!!! Shame on you! No way this is a legit deal!

    In 2 days this thread has gone to five pages and the OP has disappeared. Naughty!

    Definitely snap this deal up (unless it has fungus of course).

    Polaroids aren't gone. Aren't they the mainstay for testing light? (Fuji 3000b, etc.)

    My only gripe with polaroids on the RB67 is how small the pictue is.. not even a 6x6! That sucks big time n wonder why they never used a larger gate?


    and yeah where is that bumb? We've been crop dusted!
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    Paul, I hear ya! I have the same gripe with my RZ. I get jealous when I see full use of the polaroid on something like the 600se or other bodies.

    For the cost of the items, it's kind of cheap. Whether it makes sense as a good kit is another matter entirely - I wouldn't buy it.

    Is the 50mm the floating version? If not, walk away right now.

    The 220 stuff is basically worthless. Do you really want 2 bodies or would you be better off with 1 body and a better lens? It's a very strange assortment of stuff to me.

    The $450 asking price suggests this kit is heavily used and no doubt worn, with no guarantee it is operating reliability (very especially after coming from professional use).
    I would stick to 35mm and continue actively looking for a MF kit in very good condition with a reasonable amount of life remaining, so that you are not left with a bitter taste getting a worn, sub-standard system that will require you to outlay maybe twice or three times as much in repairs and overhauls. If it sounds too good to be true, no doubt it isn't. I really do not think it is worth the risk.
