    Yes, I actually considered several different Mamiya cameras including the 6, along with the Fuji GX 680III, Pentax 67, Hasselblad and others including a Bessa rangefinder. While I would like a larger rectangular exposure area I think I'll try the Rollei and see if it fits me.

    I have tried the Fuji6x9but was disappointedin both, camera and optics. On the other hand,the optical quality of the Mamiya 6 and it's lenses justblew me away.Carl Zeiss step aside;there is a new champion in town.

    Hi Ralph,
    Did you also use the Bronica SQ lenses? If so, how would you compare these to the SL66 and the Mamiya 6?

    YesI did use Bronica lenses,but Mamiya6 (or7)lenses are hard to beat. I my opinion,Bronica lenses are very solid performers, well worth the moneyand fully fit for professional work.

    If you plan to shoot handheld, there is a grip/bracket for the Rolleiflex SL66, which provides for a more stable shooting platform. The SL66 is a sizable camera.

    Some accessories from the SLX can used with the SL66, such as the compendium lens shade and even the 45-degree angle prism.

    I haven't used a Hasselblad, so I can't provide any comments on it.

    The Zeiss lenses for the SL66 are excellent. The early ones are single coated, I believe, so a lens shade is a wise accessory ... and in fact is always a wise accessory to own.

    I think the image frame from a SL66 is slightly bigger (5,8x5,8 cm) compared to the Hassy image frame (5,5x5,5 cm). You might want to check wether your enlarger can cope with this.

    You are correct.

    Since it's the same 120 roll film, it will fit in the enlarger, it might give some small cropping. But with my enlarger I can also print the numbers & letters on the side of the film so there's no problem.

    It took me 3 years to get this immaculate SL66SE with a 80mm; so be patient and a happy search

    So not so many words from me - just an image showing a very modern lens arrangement... and two resusts - one with a meniscus type landscape lens - the other using a small Busch Ki Petzval lens...
    How do you guys meter when you do oddball things like this, TTL, Polaroid?
