    You have 2 weeks

    To talk me out of the following:

    2x RB67 Pro S
    50mm 4.5
    90mm f3.8
    180 f4.5
    2x Polaroid backs
    2x 220 and 120 backs
    2x metered finders
    2x WLF and a macro finder
    30-50 refrigerator-kept rolls of 120 and 220 slide, BW and color

    all for 450

    I would be abandoning 35mm save for a compact Nikon prime, an EOS body and a Soviet rangefinder, and could probably pay for the entire thing by selling my Nikon kit which is all fast primes

    ...and go
    5x7 Eastman-Kodak kit / B&L 135mm Zeiss Tessar + Compur Deckel
    4x5 Graphic View, made in USA! New project
    RB67 Pro S /50 4.5 / 90 3.8 / 180 4.5 / WLF / prism finder / polaback
    Random 35mm stuff

    At that price it's a no-brainer, just go get it. MF or LF is the way to go.

    That's disgustingly cheap. Hurry up and buy it before the person selling it changes his mind.

    You don't have it yet???? That's a darn good deal and I'd grab it right now and worry about selling the Nikon stuff later. I've ran into deals like this and even if the seller says it's a "done deal" it ain't done until the cash is in his/her hand and the camera outfit in yours. Doing it quick stops them from getting "seller remorse" just a little to early. I don't have my RB outfit anymore, but it was first rate and the glass was excellent. JohnW

    Well, you will be giving up a lot of portability, but gaining a lot of quality. If that is the direction in which you want to head, then by all means go for it. The film would be worth somewhere between $90 and $200, and the rest depends on how the equipment looks. Be sure to ascertain the condition of the bellows, focusing racks and also the shutters and general optical condition of the lenses. You could sell one kit and buy additional lenses if you choose. I would personally like something in between 50 and 90 and again between 90 and 180. So a 65 and a 127 would be welcome there. But that is me. At 450, definitely a good buy as the others have already said, if everything works.
