    I have an ETRs system with 2 120 backs, 220 insert, polaroid back, rotary prism, regular prism (non metered), 40mm, 75mm, 150mm, and a 250mm. The 40mm and the 250mm are PE lenses and the other 2 are the series just before the PE series came out. I am very happy with this system and have used it for a few years now.

    RF645

    Bronica RF645 with 45, 60, and 100 lenses.....can not say enough good about this camera, I got one of the early ones and have had no trouble at all. The lenses are the sharpest I have ever owned, as good as the Hasselblad lenses and my Nikon. The lenses are all f/4 when extra speed is needed I use the flash and or Delta 3200 film. I will in the future get additional bodies. Also for many years i used a Bronica S2A which I really liked, it was noisy, but very reliable and the lenses were very sharp....I would be using it today but it disappeared when I was shooting several years back way down in old Mexico...that s another story.

    I bought an SQ-Ai outfit about a month ago--body, 80mm lens, 120 back, WLF and eye-level prism (non-metered). Soon, I hope to add the 50mm lens and another 120 back.

    I haven't had a chance to use it much yet, but my test rolls have me anxious to get out and do some real photography. It's a great camera and with prices the way they are now, it's hard to find an excuse not to jump at some of the deals out there.

    I couldn't take it anymore...

    So I edited the thread title, so that it will show up on a search for "Bronica".

    Classic Bronica user here. 2 S2a bodies, 5 backs, 11 lenses from 40mm through 500mm, tilt-shift bellows and various what-nots. It's a very affordable way to build a very versatile system.

    Thank you Ole! It was bugging me too because of the same reason - not showing up in a search.

    I've been using a SQa for about 9 years now. It is my go-to camera (except that I'm using my 4x5 more and more). I have 2 bodies (recently picked up the 2nd for back-up just because they've gotten so cheap), the AE finder (and yes I use the meter and yes it gives me good results), WL, 2 120 6x6 backs, 1 120 645 back, the 40mmS, 50mmS, 80mmS, 150mmS and 250mmS lenses, speed grip and pro shade (that covers the 50mmS thru 250mmS). I can go out and spend all day with just the 40mm lenses. I've never had anything but good luck with this equipment; it never failed me.

    Well done that man!


    SQA + 50 + 110 + 200, 36mm extension tube & few 120 backs.

    Why? Half the size and weight of a 6x7 SLR (you know the one I mean...), electronically timed leaf shutters in good quality lenses. All fits nicely in a Lowepro Nova 5 shoulder bag.

    Why not? Take a spare battery with you - always. Rubbish 'B' mode. No longer made (but then, what is these days? )


    Cheers, Bob.

    I have two SQ-Ai bodies, 40PS/50S/80PS/110PS /150 PS and 250 PS lenses together with the usual assortment of finders,prisms, backs and hoods. Frankly I buy very little equipment outside of making sure I have good examples of everything and backup available on the most vital components.

    I've had Bronicas for not far off a decade now- so plenty of opportunity to change them if I didn't like the format or the way the cameras work.

    I've been using my sqai which I first got for weddings in 1995 (and I have to admit, love not doing weddings anymore).

    Have a 40mm which is excellent for landscapes. Recently got a 250 cheaper than I ever imagined, and am trying it on dune pix.

    The one with a tilt-shift--was this mfg'd by Bronica, and is it available used??

    And, does the rangefinder use completely different lenses?
