    Some Pentax 6*7 questions

    So I'm looking at picking up a 67 body in the new year, but firstly I just wanted to make sure of a few things.

    I'm assuming the AE finder from the 67II and the wlf from the 6*7 will both mount on the 67 body. Is this correct?

    Will the 67II grip mount on the 67 body? KEH only has the 67II grip.


    And who wants to sell me one for cheap cheap cheap?

    No 67 and 6x7 are same 67ii is different beast altogether. Lens will work, just not the prisms

    What about the grips?

    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....

    The wood left-hand grip works for both.

    The TTL prism (it has a little swing arm thing on the side) and standard 67/6x7 prism works for both models. The AE meter is for the 67II body.

    I've got a wooden grip for my 6x7 as well as one for my 67ii, and they appear to be the same.

    Adding wooden grips adds weight, and quite likely that's the last thing you want above its base specs.
    Besides which, you can stick any wooden grip (or grips, plural) on a beastly 67 s but it won't improve the primitivel boxy ergonomics one iota. Not that this beaming Pentax owner is going to gripe about ergonomics, weight or crook neck: I'm learning to live and love this clunker, even more so after seeing the first two rolls of ACROS from it!

    EDIT: Fleabay is a good place to start for any 67 bodies of all shapes and sizes (and vintages) but the problem is in accurately and confidently (beyond reasonable doubt) assessing threadbare descriptions and images.

    I'm 120 kilos so an extra couple in the hands won't really trouble me too much, I trust.

    ^ Hmm. I'm 57kg and size of this beast does matter! Weight too... My neck is sore, my back is broke, my knees are wonk and I have no bag for this beast of burden at all. That will change today: a bag is now to hand. Hooray, no need to cart it around in an Esky anymore!

    My KATA case is excellent. I've found I have ample room for my Sekonic, a few filters, cable release, notebook, munchies, scalpel, pepper spray and spider. Everything a serial menace with a monster camera needs.
