    I just ordered a Mamiya RB67

    with a 127 lens and a 120 back. I ordered it new from Hong Kong for US $725. The price in Canada is double that. Hopefully I won't get screwed on the duty. I think I might have to get rid of a 35mm or two. I'm getting a little camera heavy.

    Out of curiosity, is it a new old stock Pro/Pro-S with a C lens or is it a brand new Pro-SD with the K/L lens?

    You will be very camera heavy when your new toy arrives.

    Pro SD with the KL 127 3.5 lens. Whether or not this is good, bad or indifferent compared to the older version, I have no idea.

    I get it, I get it. But it has to be easier to pack around than my Toyo 4x5 and all the ancillary gear!

    I've been thinking about medium format for a while. At the price (compared to the used stuff on ebay) and the nice things everyone had to say about the camera on another thread, (aside from the weight), I couldn't resist.

    I realized last night I needed a couple of filters, some developing reels and film, so it's a little more expensive than I told my accountant. Guess I'll have to get her another paint brush, or a second dress or something.

    When I finally settled on an rb, it was that exact same kit, SD with 127 KL. Excellent start! You'll love it.

    Consider also a 6x8 back. And you can shoot sheet film with the rb- there are holders for 3 1/4" film.

    6x8?? I didn't see that in their literature. Great. It also comes with a 6x4.5 back, but a 6x8 back would be make it even better.
