    My 2 lens kit is a 65mm and the 140mm macro lens.

    The chimney viewer is a hard-sided waist-level finder. There are various versions - some have switchable magnifiers, and some have metering. The latest version (PDN???) of the metering chimney finder uses a modern battery (PX28) and modern light sensors.

    Tall plastic square tapered tube with a magnifier in it. Fits on top of the body replacing either the pop up viewer or the prism. Mine is the simple one.

    I just happen to like using it.

    The 65mm is one pretty lens.

    Well, the RB body i ordered came with a WLV, so whatever it is i will accept it, i am not sure what accessories i should replace or get for that WLV, will give it a test later and i hope it is similar or same as RZ ProII WLV because i love it, but who knows.

    Well, i am not in rush for lenses, i used 50mm a lot on my RZ67 and it is a fantastic lens, sometimes it has that distortion or not parallel lines, but i learnt how to make it straight mostly, and i think 65mm will be a better FL over 50mm, at then end i can use RB lenses on RZ, so 65mm may be better for RB/RZ over 50mm on RZ.

    I was thinking about a macro lens, but honestly speaking i feel either i stay in digital with Macro or buy a macro lens for Hasselblad 6x6 rather than Mamiya 6x7.

    Finally, the system kit is complete, whatever i buy more are just bonus and not in rush.

    Just came back from post office with some packages, including Mamiya RB 127mm KL and RB film back 6x7, also i got a Panoramic adapter 135 for my Mamiya 7II, almost done with RB until i can afford 2 lenses, one wide and one long, for now i can enjoy using either 90mm or 127mm and i can't wait to see the quality of using RB comparing to RZ.

    Ok, i did shoot today just few minutes ago with 90mm, i used an expired film, TMAX 400, expired on 09/2009, so will see if it is still good and if the camera is functioning perfectly or not, can't wait to see the results [nothing that is exciting for you].

    Post your results. I'd like to see them. I just bought a pair of RB67's that should be showing up today with aluminum hard case, WLF, Metered Prism Finder, 2x converter, 2 120 backs, 1 220 back, 90mm F3.8 and 180mmF4.5. I can't wait to give them a once over and try them out!

    Ok, the film exposed is in the fridge now and i am busy right now, in few hours i will start to process the film and see if the results are fine enough, but don't expect the images are of something interesting, it is just my house interior design but with 90mm it is so tight and later i will buy a wider lens, but hope the results you will find them as good enough for you to start with your kit.

    Congrats in advance!!!

    Another update: i saw a brand new Mamiya RB 65mm lens on ebay, stated as last one, and they reduced the price a bit, so even it was expensive i couldn't hold myself and pulled a trigger on that lens with some another items, yesterday or before yesterday [Saturday] when i used my 90mm for first time inside the house [interior] i still love wider lenses, i have 50mm RZ one, so wanted to have different FL so i can use that on RZ too if i want.

    Now i feel i want to buy 1 or 2 last lenses and not sure what to get, a macro lens? TS? ... something else?
