Actually, i probably shouldn't ask. I've owned Pentax 67IIs twice before, and am looking for any excuse to acquire another.... I prolly should try the Mamiya 7, though....
I went through this arc. The Mamiya is a fine camera, but the lenses don't focus close enough for the kind of images I like. It is the antithesis of the P67, quiet where the Pentax is loud, hand-holdable where the P67 really wants a tripod. But I just kept wishing I could take a half-step forward all of the time. In the end, of all the cameras I have sold, I missed it the least.
