    So who is using Pentax 67

    So I got this old Pentax 6X7 with a 75mm f/4,5.
    I kind of like the focallenght And the performance is just great though I'd like a f/2.8. Now should that be a 75mm or a 90mm.
    I am in the market for a 45mm f/4.0 soon and the last addition will be either a 135mm or a 165mm. What are you guys using and what are your thoughts ?
    There is something about the format I really like. I do like 6X6 as well but never got used to 4.5X6. 6X7 is about the perfect format for me but I can't just not say why.
    Cheers

    I am using a shutterless Carl Zeiss 180mm 2.8 lens with my P67.

    Let us know how you will hold/sleeve your 10 negs.

    I use a 67II occasionally with a 55mm, 100mm, and 165LS. It has pretty much replaced my F3 as a walk around camera. The Matrix metering in my model is incredibly accurate! My photo friends think it is a bit heavy, but for 15 years I shot special events (and other things) professionally, and my walk around was a Hassy with a 50mm lens and 70mm back mounted on a grip with a Vivitar 285 and a Quantum battery. Now that was heavy!

    I'd like to know how you cut and store them.

    As for the lens...it's an oddball. It has a Pentax mount. It does not have any shutterblades on the inside so I can only shoot it at 2.8. THe bokeh is amazing though.

    So far I had my negs developed by a lab and they cut them and put them in ordinary neg sleeves. I recon Ill do as I did with my 6X6 negs. Cut them with a pair of scissors, just sleeve them and store them in a ring binder. I guess you ask because they tend to be a couple of mm's wider than the sleeves they go into, right ?

    soren,
    i have a beautiful 67. it came with the 2.8/90.. but what gets the most play is a 4/45mm. i've taken it backpacking, walked around with it in the city, used it with flash strobes. its my favorite medium format for the time being. 6x7 really is a great format.

    before i was doing MF, i found myself taking more wide angle shots in 35mm. as soon as i saw the 4/45, i knew i had to have it. i picked mine up from KEH.

    I have been using the Pentax 67 since it was introduced. The camera is heavy, but the results are excellent. I have never liked 6x6 though I used Rollei and Hasselblad for years. Still have three Hasselblads, but seldom use them. The Pentax does what I want with no fuss. Some claim the shutter slap is so bad that it can ruin and image, it is loud, but I have never been able to see any effect caused by S.S. on a negative from 1/125 up. I won't argue with the xperts, but I am satisfied with the negative quality 100 percent. I love the 6x7 format, it fits my way of seeing. I use the 105 mm
    as a normal lens. Prefer the 162 mm 2.8 for head and shoulders to 3/4 length
    portraits. Also does a wonderful job with brides full length. Seldom use w angle but have them if needed. I use the 55 mm most often as it appears a bit sharper than my 45 mm. The fact is I use the W WA so seldom I am not even sure what focal length it is. The bottom line here is: Pentax 6x7 works for me.

    I use the 67II with 55mm 90mm and 150mm. I love it and it mostly replaces my 35mm gear. The 55mm is the sharpest and heaviest i've got. You'll need a very sturdy tripod and head. My 410 geared head didn't cut it and neither did the 3021 tripod. I always use MLU too.
    I always hope for one neg that's no good but usually end up putting 2 in the 9th pocket. Larger print file sleeves are available that hold more 6x7 negs but aren't readily available and won't fit in most binders.

    I use a P67 built in 1981, with 55mm, 105mm, 135mm macro and 200mm lenses. Since I also shoot other formats, use of this camera has long fallow periods followed by periods of intense usage. I once shot a beautiful turquise-blue damsel fly with the 105mm lens plus a couple of extenders - it was like handling a bazooka, but it got the job done. The DOF was so shallow that only the damsel fly's body was in focus, everything else was beautiful bokeh....

    Anyway, great camera - built like a tank. About that loud shutter - anybody hear rumors about the "red-ear reduction" mod?
