JP, obviously check out ebay on a regular basis. You can save your searches and ebay will email you daily if anything comes up. Make sure not only to search for "Bronica RF645", but also "Bronica RF 645" and even just "Bronica RF."

And the risk is a lot lower. KEH has very good exchange policy.

I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
Another consideration is the Pentax 645n. It has a meter and auto focus if you want to use it. Or the 645 if you don't want AF. Lots of good lenses available. KEH is also a good source for those as well.
I have had EXTREMELY good luck with KEH and will continue to do business with them.
i managed to find a few candidates on second hand stores and asked to just play a bit with every one, no bronicas at all here in spain, and it seems that they dont know that such camera ever existed,... anyway
after testing fujis, rolleiflex and mamiya i have a clear winner, fujis 6x4,5 are so bad i mean that rangefinder is.. bad and the one with zoom must be the worst thing i've ever tried yacky.... manual focus weren't any better but at least they were cheap and manual, i hate to the bone autothings cameras, no 6x7 or 6x9 fujis here, rollei were so nice cameras and i found quite good bargains compared to ebay stuff, i suposed that i tried the ones with no so good viewing screens, i think that should be a must to upgrade. Mamiya 7II oh my god what a camera is super light weight, super easy to focus, it was love in first sight totally, it felt as a glove to my hand. Now ebay hunting because here they are asking me 1900€ for a mamiya 7II kit with a 65mm lens!!!, yeah right......
thank you all!
