Don't get me wrong, at web-page or small (8x10") print dimensions the prints look fine, but the loupe shows there was blur caused by movement. And if i'm going to shoot 6x7 film, i want the sharpness to be resolved down to the film grain. Which does happen with the RB67 at 1/125 (very easily, handheld!!!) But not with the Pentax.

I sold it.

It's sad, because i firmly believe Pentax makes some of the best lenses ever.
Under those conditions I see blur with any camera. You say the RB67 isn't blurry but I do better with my Pentax 67.

Is it good, helpful to focus?
i'm pretty sure it will not fit the older models
is it better than the multi-prisim not really same brightness just different pattern.

For the older 6X7 and 67 the "Beattie Intenscreen Focusing Screen for Pentax 67"
were the best and brighter than the original ones
hope it helps

My wife shoots a Pentax 67 in her arsenal of MF and she doesn't have undue issues with mirror shake. Why do some report this issue and others don't?

I don't have any issues with undue mirror shake either. The answer you are likely to get here to your question boils down to that some photographers are more discerning than others, sniff, sniff, and if your wife doesn't have issues with mirror shake she should be ashamed of herself and get another camera. It's the film version of pixel peepers. Some people, like your wife (and I) are more than happy with the results, just go with that. A look at the photos in this thread should be enough for most people. But, alas.....

Some people sadi that they had mirror shake when on tripod. They said they got rid of it with a more solid tripod or adding weight under the tripod base. Perhaps either your wife use a solid tripod or, most likely as said before, she is happy with her camera results

I myself dont have any issue with mine, although I mostly use Trix and landscape so mostly high speeds.

I think is more due to each photographer and how steady their hands can be. P67 is a huge and heavy camera and not eveyrone can hold it steady while taking a shot. Personally I can easily go down to 1/30 (inclusive) handheld and I have no problem whatosever (with the standard lens 105mm f/2.4)....i need to be extra careful at 1/30 but I can make it work (I even keep my breath while I press the shutter). I have posted in the past in this thread few examples at 1/30 handheld. I won't repost it. I haven't used it much on a tripod but I have a basic one and I took few shots at 3-4s but with mirror lock before taking the shot....excelent results.

In conlcusion: is possible but maybe not for everyone. I think she can make a test roll and see if she can pull it of below 1/125 handheld.

I finally managed to pick up an affordable P6x7 and 105mm last week. It seems they have shot up in value since I stupidly sold mine, and the Pound's collapse isn't helping. To celebrate, here's one from the library probably taken with my old 90mm.

I have the 45 rather than the 55, but otherwise, that's my setup. I think the 45/105/165 combo is the perfect three-lenser for the 6x7.

I did consider the 45 because I know it's well regarded but 28 eqiv. is my most used FL so I think the 55 would suit me better.

Getting excited...I think I know what I'm getting for Christmas

You get what works for you. I just know I'm a wide-angle guy and the wider the better

I hope you've been good this year, and that Santa doesn't break anything trying to deliver your 6x7 (like his sleigh, or his back!)

This is a photo I took back in 2010, not long after first getting my Pentax 67. I think it was the 3rd roll of film I put through the camera. Yesterday I was looking at the original scan I had done, and the scan wasn't very good so I decided to rescan the negative.
