    Just curious. How is the viewfinder on the Mamiya Six folder? Many of the old folders have view finders that are so small as to be almost useless.

    I find the viewfinder as clear and / or sized as any I've seen and or handled before. I had not a lick of trouble with her in any light. It' was clear that the finder framed the negative bang on.
    This may be why it was such a desired camera for so long and now.

    The viewfinders, even on the early ones, is pretty good. However, I reckon the best viewfinder on an old folder is to be found on the Iskra. The Super Fujica-6 is pretty close to the Iskra, with the RF patch possibly being a little "snappier". None have frame lines (IIRC, one of the very late Mamiya Six folders did, but I'm not sure), but the viewfinders are clear and accurate.

    I found that interesting myself. But it was spot on.

    Keep it, use it, love it. They are getting very rare these days, and after all, what's one more little MF folder?

    LOL. I know and I'm getting a lot of different emails from folks telling me this as well.
    She will be going to a good home where she will be used very well.

    There just comes a point where I can't have anymore rare oldies like her anymore. These are meant to be used.
    Have a great evening.
