What a treat for film photographers! I am wondering if this camera body would be able to support 6x9. In other words, do you think we will see a 6x9 version of this camera in the future?

Jeez.. I meant that for a little more than $300 CDN more than the $2400 USD price, I could get a complete Mamiya 7 II kit

Nice shots.

Now, a categorizing question: would this fall under the "120 RF Folders" or the "120 RF Modern" forums (forae?)? I mean, there couldn't possibly be a redundancy of these things for good navigation and good knowledge-seeking user experience, right?

Ah Dave, that makes a lot more sense. I thought I was missing out on some seriously secret awesome camera shop here in Toronto.

people don't always read the subheadings, but they do clarify the question of what goes where. i guess the mods will have more work to do.

this "Bigger than 35 RF's" category doesn't sound right, though. why not "Medium and Large Format RF's"? and the new "Voigtlander Fujica Bessa III" forum title is a mess. it should be "Voigtländer Bessa III / Fujifilm GF670 Professional".

Can't afford it now or ever. The $300 Mamiya's are the 645's, and the TLR's: not RF's, and not too svelte, good cameras though.

I think Dave meant $300CAD more than the suggested price of USD$2400

Perhaps Cameraquest will have it cheaper when it is available.

sure thing, aizan (is that your first name?)

It makes me really want one. I was in Taipei today talking with a storeowner asking about them. People are really interested. If they had made the price point lower, these could really sell much more than the 5000 units in the initial run.

well, second name.

i'm just hoping it doesn't sell out immediately. i really shouldn't be spending that much, and it's a mamiya 7 for me if the lens isn't comparable.
