    Won a Bronica Setup on Ebay!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=220303987654

    I think i did prettttty well for the price!

    # Used Zenza Bronica ETRS Medium Format Camera Kit
    # Includes all the following:

    * Zenza Bronica ETRS Camera with Prism, and 120 back
    * Etr Grip
    * 75mm Zenzanon EII f/2.8 Lens w/ hood (hood does not lock)
    * 40mm Zenzanon MC f/4 Lens w/ front and rear caps.
    * 150mm Zenzanon MC f/3.5 Lens w/ front and rear caps.
    * E-28 Teleconverter w/ front and back caps (rear cap is damaged)
    * Extra 120 Film Back
    * 220 Insert
    * Stroboframe (Pro RL)

    Paid 265 for it.

    On, and its my first time posting here too (: hello.

    Hope my foray into MF goes well.
    (currently using a Bessa R3a+ Nokton 40mm1.4/ Rigid Summicron 5cm)

    Anyone has experince with the ETRS? The only thing i know so far is that the Zenzanon glass is pretty good.

    I've got an ETRSI based setup. Similar lenses.

    I like WLF more then prisms.

    For $265, I'd say you did very well.

    If you don't already know- you'll soon find that Zenzanon glass is second to none.

    I haven't been paying much attention lately but I checked the last KEH catalog when it came. The prices are much higher then last year. Bodies and lenses are both up.

    Ebay prices are always a bit of a crap shoot. For every great deal somebody over pays. KEH and the other big dealers tend to be a better mirror on prices.

    it is as cheap as kiev or alike... i've never owned bronica but by reputation the quality is grand and absolutely comparable to other leading brands. seems like one can get a whole medium format system on "a shoe string" budget...

    I purchased a Bronica set-up new and have been totally satisfied.Bronica may be the best kept secret in MF because they aren't as well known as other brands but the quality is certainly there.

    merelyok,Google search Bronica.There is a wealth of good info.Bronica was purchased by Tamron so info can be found through them as well.

    Probably because Bronica no longer manufacture, whereas Hasselblad are still in production.
