I finally bit the bullet
 
I've been using TLR's for a number of years but recently I have been looking at 6x7 so today I bought a RB67 Pro S with waste level, revolving back, 120 film back, and 127mm C lens.

It's coming from a camera shop in Pennsylvania and has been serviced with new seals all around..

My next buy for it will be a 65mm then 180mm..

Have you ever tried a 645 camera? I find that it is much more versatile than 6x7 and for A2 prints the difference in quality is not readily visible with good technique. I recommend P645N, but you can also try Mamiya 645 AFD. You can adapt tons of lenses to both.

I've tried 645 and didn't like it. 6x6 and 6x7 works better for me..

OK, then I wonder if you can use the 110/2.8 Z, whenever I look at M67 photos, this lens and the 180/4.5 stand out.

The 110mm f/2.8Z is for the RZ67 and I don't know if it fits the RB67. I'll have to look into it. The 180mm f/4.5 is on my list of lens I plan to get though..

Are you the spelling police?

Well... if it's not at waist level, it's at garbage level... :)

Congratulations on biting the bullet (or pulling the trigger), Colyn!

I haven't used 6x7 in a number of years so it should be interesting. I'll have to dust off my 6x7 negative carrier for the 23C II....
