Jodys, interesting to read from your guide that KL lenses have plastic barrels - I've only ever come across C and non-C lenses and these are all metal. Just a few quick comments. I believe that the NB versions are extremely scarce - though there is no mention of that on your site. Additionally, the C lenses became lighter over their production run, so that, for example, an early 50 C will weigh rather more than the very last ones. You've accumulated a lot of detail - but the photos could be nicer couldn't they??
Neil, thanks for the comments. I updated the site with a note on the NB lenses; I only see them rarely, as well. As to the pictures, I'd like to improve them, but I only have a very small selection of RB67 gear, so I can't provide them. Finally, do you have any details on changing weights of the C lenses? Serial numbers or dates?
I don't have much either but if you need pictures perhaps post a list of things you need and we can provide what we have.
I've got a few photos of my RB gear on my Chemical Cameras site. See my sig for the link.

Actually I have a bit of gear that I haven't photographed yet, now that I think of it. In addition to what is on the web site, I have the CDS prism finder, the model 2 prism finder and a 6x8 power back.
Hey, I'm wondering about the 6x8 power back. Do I need a special rotating back adapter to use it or is the one from the Pro S compatible, do you know?

Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.
I don't have any direct experience, however, I have been able to glean the following details about shooting 6x8 on the RB67. So, yes, you do need a special revolving adapter.
- a 6×8 power back.
- a 6×8 light baffle–which lies between the revolving adapter and the body. You can tell what sort of baffle you have by taking off the current revolving adapter. There is a flat black baffle held in by four screws, if this says “8″ or “6×8″ you are ready to go.
- Pro-SD 6×8 revolving adapter
With regard to pictures; my goal is to have complete photographic documentation of all the details of all bodies, all lenses and all accessories. I'm hoping to aid myself and others in identifying stuff in auctions, etc. I also find myself having questions (like, do all lenses have the DOF preview lever?) that could easily be answered with detailed pictures.
If anyone is interested in helping, I'd be extremely pleased. The site needs pictures of bodies (Pro, Pro-S), backs, lens, and accessories. I think the important aspect is to have well lit pictures that covers most angles (e.g. for lens; all sides, front, back, oblique).
revdocjim, your pictures look great! Would it be possible for me to use them on my site? I'd also be very excited to see pictures of any other accessories, lens, etc.
