RB67 Pro-S Kit w/ 3 Lenses - $500
Up for sale is my RB67 kit:
- RB67 Pro-S Body (KEH bargain condition; 1 issue w/ landscape-portrait orientation indicator described below)
- 3x RB67 Pro-S 120 Backs (1 w/ Issue Described Below)
- 180mm f/4.5 K/L Lens (Excellent, w/ front & Rear Caps)
- 127mm f/3.5 K/L Lens (LNIB, w/ front & Rear Caps, w/ RZ adapter ring)
- 90mm f/3.5 K/L Lens (Perfect glass, shutter & aperture blades, but 1 issue described below; w/front cap)
- Mamiya No. 1 & No. 2 Extension Tubes (Excellent)
- 2x 77mm Mamiya No. 1 Collapsible Rubber Lens Hoods (Excellent)
- Printed Instruction Manual
- Replacement Foam Kit for several 120 Film Backs
- Vivitar ND8 77mm Filter (Unused)
As noted above, the landscape-orientation indicator beneath the focusing screen does not work -- only the portrait-orientation framelines are visible. I find it easy enough to estimate the framelines for the landscape orientation, however.
From APUG member drumlin: "One issue I've found with the kit is that the mounting flange on the 90mm is a little out of round, so it's harder to mount than the 180. It does mount properly however, and doesn't affect the operation of the camera in any way." This lens is just a touch harder to mount than a normal K/L lens, but it's no big deal and works beautifully.
From APUG member drumlin: "1 has some spacing issues (I still get 9 good frames per 120 roll) The other 2 have exhibited no problems (KEH BGN)" My comments: I have not used the one back with the described issue. The two backs I do use work perfectly.
Background & Terms:
I purchased this camera from an APUG forum member, drumlin, in April 2012. I've used it for eight months, and have fallen in love with it. Unfortunately, I need to sell it due to unexpected medical expenses. (My second daughter's routine, problem-free birth ended up costing $3,000 out of pocket, far more than the $500 the insurance company estimated!)
Shipping is going to be a bit pricy, since the kit is rather heavy. I'll estimate $40 to the US, insured -- I can fit everything in a large box, but it's heavy. If the actual shipping ends up being less than $40, I'll refund the difference.
Payment via Paypal, with you paying the Paypal fees. I'll donate 2% to APUG. US purchases only, please, unless you're willing to work with me on figuring out (and bearing the cost of) insured international shipping cost and waiting for your payment to clear from Paypal to my bank account before I ship.
I've attached some pictures I've taken with this camera over the past couple of months, as well as some iPhone snapshots of the stuff that I'm selling.
