    Mamiya RZ67 waist-level magnifier blurriness

    Okay guys so I just bought another RZ67 (I owned one before but sold it) and it's all in great condition. But I just got the WLF and the magnifier seems to be doing something odd. When I flip it up, I look through it and it's as if it's at the wrong distance away from the screen. If I keep looking through it and push it down a little bit it seems to get better... and I've attached it several times and don't think I'm doing anything wrong. Any ideas?

    EDIT: I think my problem is that this is a different magnifier, it's a +1. If so, which one should I get? I have no idea what was on it before. I'm assuming standard - I never have to make any adjustments to those types of things.

    I think that the standard is -1 rather than +1. I tried to find some sort of confirmation and could not. There is no indication on the magnifier on my RB, so I really don't know, but that would be my guess.

    Here is the portion of the Mamiya USA site that may answer your question (apparently, the -1.5 diopter is standard):

    Thanks guys. I bought the WLF from KEH, maybe they'd do a swap since they included a nonstandard magnifier, but we'll see.

    They will certainly take a return. I suspect that they will do you better than that, however, since it was not a standard diopter. (meaning pay for return shipping, do an exchange of just the diopter, something like that...)

    Edit: This is the one, they are the same for RB and RZ. http://www.keh.com/camera/Mamiya-RB-...990227100?r=FE
