    Fuji GF670 - anyone see one?

    Has anyone held a Fuji GF670?

    I currently have the Voigtlaender Bessa III version of the same thing and have run half a dozen rolls through it - so yes, what would you like to know?

    I was wondering if the camera is "big and bulky" of if it sits well in your hands. (It is not a small article.)

    What is your opinion of the lens quality?

    The thing is retailing for almost $2000. Is ti money well spent?

    Thank you,

    I have held and used the Fuji 670 which seemed a bit bulky for only being 6X7 however the image quality is absolutly amazing in my opinion. The Bessa III is actually a 667 in fuji terms from what I can gather? or am i wrong on this?

    The Voigtlaender Bessa III & the Fuji GF670 are exactly the same camera - only the names have been changed (and the Fuji has a chrome top). I am used to my Rolleiflex, and found the Voigtlaender really light in comparison. However there are some things to consider: the bellows obstructs the viewfinder image a tiny bit, and the shutter button is so quiet, there is no satisfaction in that :-) For a large camera, no-one really notices it though - not like they do with the Rollei.... The lens is sharp as a tack, as you would expect, and the meter agrees with my other meters. $2k doesn't seem unreasonable at all for a new MF camera (esp. compared to a decent digi SLR). I am not "in love" with the camera, but I can't really fault it in any significant way.

    You can read a review of it, which also has a good video showing the size here

    And of course there's this thread over here on APUG, on the subject of the Bessa III/Fuji670 (or 667, whatever one wants to call it). Check that one as well.

    (Or, moderators, maybe it's time for another merge of threads?)

    Seen a Bessa III, which is the same thing, it's smaller than I expected, looks much better in real life than in the pictures, and it's good job I'd already got my Mamiya 7, or I'd likely have purchased it.

    For some strange reason he calls the film advance knob a rewind knob.
