    Nice shots. I do not need a Mamiya 6/7, I already have plenty of very nice MF cameras, but the more I see the more I want!

    Had a 6 outfit w/all 3 lenses-could't get many good shots because of the parallax-it's a lot greater thanw/a 35mmRF.

    Depends how close you shoot and how tight you crop. At the distances such as in the photos in the OP, it shouldn't be any problem at all.

    I normally don't crop that tightly anyway, unless circumstances absolutely require it.

    I'd like to have one, either 6 or 7, but already have too many cameras and have trouble deciding which one(s) to take on trips or on a given day!

    Great pictures Chris, you are doing full justice to your leap of faith in buying the Mamiya 6.

    I'm just back from a long weekend in Istanbul. I took my Mamiya 6 with all three lenses. Of sixty pictures, ONE was taken with the 150, two or three with the 75 and all others with the 50.

    That's the dumbest thing I've ever read.
    I have an M6 with all 3 lenses. My best photos have been taken with this camera. If you can't get good photos, trust me, it's not the parallax.

    I had problems with the Mamiya 6, not the Leica M6--have many great shots done with a Leica M4, and now my Contax Gs. I work in too close for the large Mamiya 6 parallax, and am most comfortable w/a 35mm SLR.

    For all who find a Mamiya 6 with a 50mm lens ideal, you may want to consider a Plaubel Makina 67W. Even more portable than the Mamiya 6 as the bellows fold in flat. Great Nikkor lens, too.

    Though I've never owned one, let alone shot with one, I remain convinced that a Mamiya 6 or 7 would be my ideal camera. I'm "making do" with an old Hasselblad for now

    Wonderful images Chris, it's very clear that you have found YOUR camera.
