    Mamiya doesn't look like as solid and strong as pentax... Just my impression.

    I don't know pentax level... I was talking about bronica's level compared to Mamiya.

    The RZ is a great system, but may not be as enjoyable to use as your Pentax for what you describe. I had both and in my opinion the Pentax 67 is a more enjoyable field camera than the RZ unless you plan to take landscapes on a tripod. Both have great glass and the Pentax has AE prisms and waist-level finders in the system.

    Ignore the hype re: Hasselblad. Had that system too. It's nice, but can be very expensive; on the other hand, the Pentax is very economical and has a better range of lenses. Check out the 100mm Macro with 1:1 lifesize element!

    Pffft...snob. And yes, I have both the "Level 2" and 3 cameras you refer to.
    Hasselblad, Mamiya RB, Nikonos, Canon EOS

    In addition, the 6x7 format is so much more than 6x6. Realistically 6x6 is more like 6x4.5. I had many 6x6 cameras. Once I got my Pentax 67-ii I stopped using all my 6x6 cameras.

    I take landscapes shots with tripod.
    I gave up the idea. I will keep my Pentax which I like a lot and I will look for a Mamiya for my studio shots, or maybe a portrait lens for my pentax and view finder so I can use for portraits in studio instead of spend more money on an other camera.

    But when I saw the mamiya in the shop I couldn't resist on thinking about get it to have a 6x7 format for my portrait shots. At the moment I use Bronica 6x4.5 for portrait in studio.

    The rotating back makes the RB67 a wonderful portrait and studio camera.

    And if you like 6x4.5, you can always get a 6x4.5 back for it - just be sure to get or make the corresponding viewfinder mask.

    I use my 6x4.5 back(s) when I want to shoot slides for projection.
