    Same for me. But of course you understand that eleven years ago that-famous-auction-site was long way to come, and so was the digital thing, thus a Mamiya back was priced 1 month's salary. Nor the MAC folks were around to warn me that I was risking to destroy the whole thing and take awfully defocused pictures.

    So, I just decided by myself to give a try to the 220 back which came with the camera, and see what happened. Since then, I have even forgot that I had in mind to buy a 120 back, and spent my cash on something else.

    Course if i am not mistaken, now days you can get a 120 back for down to 50$ if not cheaper from keh.com , but I guess a 220 6x4.5 back makes sense if you were wanting more exposures ( tho I cant see shooting 6x4.5 on a 6x7 camera ).

    Funny how things like this come up. I just rec'd an RB67 kit from KEH last week. However, the back was a 220 back, even though the label on the bag it was in (and my order) was for a 120 back. I called them up and they set aside a 120 back for me to exchange.

    I don't use any 220 film, and it just seemed to me that a 120 back was the way to go. KEH offered no resistance. They didn't try to convince me that I could use 120 film in the 220 back, for instance. Of, course, I didn't expect them to, they are pretty good for customer service.

    Anyway, the timing of this thread was kind of interesting.

    Well funny considering I got my RB67 a lil over a month ago

    I Got the Body, 90mm f/3.8C , 180mm f/4.5, 120 back, polaroid back, prism, WLF, and overnight shipping for 310$

    I thought about a 220 6x4.5 back since it was less than 30$ , but when you got over 100 120 rolls, and only two 220s it didnt make too much sense, especially when I can borrow a 220 back from my work.
