    Yes, the Planar is Zeiss glass. If it's anything like the 80mm Planar I had on my SL66, it's hot stuff. Likely it's even better.
    Honey, I promise no more searching eBay for cameras.

    6x6cm, initially 645 (reversible portrait/landscape) only (or digi), 6x6 appearing a few months later, same lens mount as 6000 series which I was told it would replace. MUCH smaller, lighter and handier; even more high-tech than the 6000 series.

    Cheers,

    I have one of these cameras, a 6008 professional, with the same lens.
    I bought it in Sydney about 8 years ago.
    Excellent camera, quite innovative for medium format.
    Choice of manual exposure, aperture or shutter priority or full auto.
    Various metering modes, & multi exposure capability.
    Easy & fast loading film holders & the film backs have a clever built in dark slide.
    The lens is superb, one of the best I have owned.
    I've hardly used the camera for the past couple of years & I'm now thinking about putting mine on ebay. Not sure what it will fetch - I've been told that the people buying medium format cameras are more interested in the mechanical ones like 500C/M & not so keen on the newer electronic models.

    There's a page or so devoted to it in this week's British Journal of Photography – along with a picture of the Leaf-branded version which will presumably be digital-only :-(

    The Hy6 shown is fitted with a Schneider AF Xenotar. I wonder if the 'Hy' stands for 'hybrid'? Will Mr Kaufman use one?

    The cameras are not THAT expensive (OK everything is relative) but from what I've seen some of the lenses would definitely lead to me sleeping in the shed

    Have look at ffordes used equipment to get an idea.
    Hmm- Wonder if she'd notice if I bought that :)

    Very informative link on the photonet that was give. I enjoy working with a simple straight forward camera on the tripod. If I were going to buy a medium format 6x6 it would be the H word. But each to their own.

    Ffodes seems to be having the cameras twice what they are worth now days. For example I got my RB67 with two lens, and a prism for under 300$. On that site they got a RB67 for no less than 600$ for just the body only, both in the same condition. (using keh.com , or ebay's 'completed' sales is a better indicator of worth, since thats what people will pay for them)
