    a friend of mine just got the Mamiya super -- and I have the ProTL -- both great manual focus 645 camera's.

    If you get the prism finder with built in meter, you can't go wrong.

    You can get leaf shutter lenses for Mamiya 645, I've got one and it syncs to 1/500. And yes the Super does have interchangable backs. It's a great camera for handheld use.

    I tend to agree. I'm not sure I've seen any sign of light-fall-off
    with the lenses wide open. Sharp images into the very corners.
    One though may wish to shave a half stop off the wide open
    rated speeds; 60 and 75 mm. Seiko Electronic shutters.

    I bought new an ETRSi outfit as the AEIII prism was offered
    half price. Very nearly bought the SQAi. Why the ET? Because
    of the lens selection; 75mm vs 80 normal and 60mm vs 65
    moderate wide angle. Also ET lens speeds are a little
    faster and the lenses a little less expensive.

    Turned out eye level was not my cup of tea at all. A real
    pain in the neck. The camera is always used with a tripod.
    So I bought Bronica's Rotary Finder. A real pleasure to use.
    It makes for bright, sharp, comfortable waist level viewing.

    As it came the ETRSi's screen was disappointing. So a
    Beattie screen was ordered and installed. BIG improvement.
    That with the Rotary make for very easy focusing even in
    the deep dark woods. Topped off the tripod with a 410
    Gear Head from Manfrotto. Very precise, no play, and
    always locked for final adjustments.

    All in all, the camera is now very usable. Dan

    That's GOT to be the mirror though, not the shutter.
