    go to KEH, buy a ProII(non-d) with all the trimmings, and I'll bet you'll come out winning $$$-wise.

    or craigslist.org, or ebay. Just picked up another ProII body(now a backup finally ) for $150 off of craigslist with a (2) 120 II backs. Almost got another 110mm 2.8 for $100. Deals are out there, and you certainly don't have to buy new.

    unless you want to of course

    I ordered and paid for some Contax equipment from them - never heard a word until I phoned them from the UK and was then told that the item was damaged and they were awaiting a replacement. Months went by and they never delivered.

    I just gave up in the end - the phone calls were costing a fortune - and cut my losses. Had I been in the US, I'd have paid them a visit and made them an offer they could not refuse...

    The Pro II and the Pro IId are exactly the same body - the only difference is the IId has the communication protocol for a digital back that would record the lens, f-stop, shutter speed etc. If you buy the Pro II and ever want to use a digi back, you still can - might need an adapter plate, you just won't get all the exposure data communicated to the back. the Pro II can also be upgraded for a price (not cheap). If your primary purpose is the shoot film with this, I concur - go to KEH and snag a used one. I bought a spare body for less than typical repair costs on a Pro II body. Looks like it was never used.

    RZ seem to be at historical lows for a body only. Lens prices are in the gutter also.

    Now is time.

    I would stay away from Cambridge World, go to KEH or even Ebay. There is an Ebay "store" named Shutterblade that has a ton of nice Mamiya equipment. I purchased a 645 Pro TL from them that was very reasonably priced and in great condition.

    As others have said, prices of film cameras are so low now it really doesn't pay to buy new

    Good luck

    Not sure where you are but this Canadian seller might be worth a look:
