    Makes me wonder what happened a few months ago when it seemed like the camera locked up, and removing the lens and re-setting the lens and body cleared it up...
    Thanks for confirming.

    The answer to your wonder is the body (or lens) had jammed early in the sequence/cycle before the lens lock was set.

    Id try the lens off the body for any errant symptoms...

    update: 127 mm lens

    I found me a nice MAMIYA RB67 SEKOR-C 3,8/127 lens today in Germany and it is on its way to me.

    I saw several very good images made with a RB67 and the 127 mm lens really stood out (to me). So it was on my watch list and now I found a decent one. The 65 mm lens will follow sometimes too, I guess. The 250 mm probably not. I'm not a "tele guy" so there is (to me) no gap between 180 mm and 360 mm. And there is a good chance I might even sell the 360 mm lens.

    At the moment I'm having a rather bussy period at work: we're having elections on March 18th. After that I hope to get me some days off with good weather and go out shooting with the RB 67 and my new C330f.

    Nice lens Toadman, I'm sure your going to like it. I have a pretty full range of lenses for my RB and for most of what I do the 127 is as long as I get. I do though like the 140 C, its a wicked good lens but most of what I do tends toward wider angles. I don't remember the last time my 180, 250, or 360 were taken out of the cabinet.
