    If you have a 220 insert it is relatively easy to convert to a 120 by flipping the orientation of a small tab - need a small screwdriver.

    For awhile 220 inserts had negative value at KEH. I'm not kidding. Bodies with 220 inserts cost less then bodies with no inserts. At some point I guess it got too comical for KEH and they stopped that.

    Congrats, me too! I'm anxiously waiting for the fedex truck.

    I bought a 120 insert from Keh.

    I've had a Pentax 645 for a few months now, and must say, I'm pretty disappointed with it. I don't think there's anything wrong with the camera model, but with mine, the exposure meter is about as reliable as a 90-yo man's penis. Up and down. Exposures that none of my other cameras miss, this one does.
    In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.

    Sorry your experience with the meter has been bad. I'll be using a handheld meter though.
