    hahahaha come on we have to make page 5 by this afternoon.

    Never ask your wife if you can buy anything unless it is a dress for her!

    Seriously.. this is a camera.. a dark box to hold film n take picture. How it operates is another stry adn this one happens to be different than most... double cocking, bellos focusing, revolving film back, has many accessories n lenses to choose from.. it was a beautiful studio camera although many use it in the field with amzing results..

    The negatives it will BLOW YOUR 35mm out of the water n make that Nikon look like a little toy next to this bruzer tonka truck. It will feel like a cinder block in your hands the first times you use it.. but with use it all becomes second nature n you will wonder how you ever put up with the crappy results of your old 35mm.

    If you want something smaller n more nimble get a 645 for the same $450.. less options n lenses in a kit for that price though... and you will also be looking at the same CLAs anyway.. shot seals n glass needing to be cleaned.
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    If you can get it at a price that will make a CLA reasonable, get it!

    A good camera with a fresh CLA, is a wonderful thing.

    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!

    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.
