    The 140 Macro is supposed to be great and the 150 SF is interesting. One of those two depending on if you want to do portraits of people or June Bugs.

    I am done with wide because i ordered 65mm yesterday, so the only one left is the longer one.

    I have 180mm on my RZ, and it is so great for portraits, so i feel either go with Macro as this is the only option i don't have on RB or RZ or even my Hasselblad 501CM, but i don't know if i should get Macro for RB so i can use it on RZ sometimes or better with RZ even i don't like RZ battery issue? RZ is giving me the easiest way to shoot with tripod, clocking the shutter, and dialing with the back and focusing screen, i tested RB few days ago for first time and it wasn't easy as RZ, so i may keep RZ in use with RB if not more.

    Also i was thinking about tilt shift, but which one is better, getting a tilt/shift lens or a tilt shift adapter?

    Wouldn't know. My tilt shift is called a Deardorf V8.

    Do you have the zoom? And the big Tele? Also if you need macro, why not use extenders?

    The 140 macro is optimized for flat field performance at close focus distances. Other lenses (e.g. the 90mm) also work well at close distances, and in fact allow even closer working distance without extenders, but don't offer the same flat field performance.

    My "small" kit for the RB67 is the 65mm and the 140mm macro.

    Cool, it sounds that 140mm will be my next lens for RB then.

    Thank you very much!

    Oh no, not disputing the suitability of the lens, I thought the OP wanted to own the range of lenses, hence my response.

    Yes, but i am not sure which range of lenses to go with, i may add zoom lens later, the prices became so affordable so that i can get more than 1 lens if necessary, but it became wanting more than needing.

    Also that big tele you mentioned, which one?

    I just had my first negs from my newest RB67 lens, the 250 C, developed and I think they're gorgeous. Maybe I got lucky with this particular lens but it's great - nicely sharp and contrasty.

    Would like to see those, i just developed mine of the first time for 90mm, i can't tell if they are gorgeous or done properly or good enough, all what i can say is that i did shoot 2 subjects at different 3 exposures to see the tones or if i can see the difference, then the rest frames where just tests, a direct scan showing not that great result, but if i post process them before scan or even after scan they are just fine, the issue was that the scenes i was shooting are very DR, maybe 4-6 stops between the shadows and highlight and i am not sure if the strength of film is in that DR will be handy.

    Well test 127mm another time, but i really would like to have that 65mm sooner because i shoot interior and open areas more than close-ups and portraits.
