    And how can I tell which AE prisms are for which camera? I see AE prisms on 6*7 kits and also on 67II kits bit with no distinction as to which prism is which in individual listings....
    I think they are very different, there is no way you could fit 67II prism on 6X7 vice versa.

    Can you give me link to the KATA bag? I'd like to haul the monster pentax with a tiny d*g*t*l and if possible have some room for hiking needs. Currently using Tamrac Adventure, it doesn't have enough room for the spare d*g*t*l.

    Here's the link to my bag. I highly recommend it for its many different layout options. The 67 lies lens-down for quick access and is supported by 'box' wings either side. Additional little nooks to hold filters etc. Very, very well made and thought out (designed in Israel I believe). AUD$95

    The P6x7 that I've got for sale in the classifieds includes a bag

    Although for actual use, if I'm going to just use one lens on a particular session I'll use my Lowepro "sling", otherwise I'll use a much larger Lowepro Vertex.

    Thanks! I always thought video bag will be more suitable for 67! I'll check the actual size when I visit the local shop. Hope I won't get charged 'inspection fee'.

    That was my guiding philosophy too after seeing how big video cameras bedded down in this and other cases with consummate ease.
    One trick I employed was to take a tape measure with me, having established the dimensions of the Pentax 67 (height 16cm, width 20cm [with SMC 55mm f4] length 19cm. This is one nitty-gritty task I couldn't leave to chance with FleaBay.

    The Pentax 6x7 and 67 accept an older TTL viewfinder. The newer 67II body accepts an AE finder that is quite a nice piece. The AE finder for the 67II offers several metering options - center weighted, spot and a dual zone six zone matrix metering.

    There is also a significant viewfinder brightness difference between the 6x7 / 67 series and the 67II series. The 67II series viewfinder is natively much brighter that the older series. You can get a brightscreen focusing screen for the older series, but it is somewhat expensive.

    If weight is no issues, take a look at the 67II body with the AE finder as well as the excellent 55-100mm zoom (and if you an afford it the 90-180mm zoom).
