Haha, thanks. Every now and then I get inspired to use the beast. It's such a great camera.

Thank you, Helen! I think it's my favorite frame from that roll. As an aside, the strawberries she's eating were freshly picked from a farm near the beach. We're definitely spoiled here in Northern California.

I'm yet another victim to succumb to the call of the Monster Pentax. I've wanted to try one out for many years now but always put it off. Wound up acquiring a 67II and 105mm in a trade so I'm going to be giving it a whirl!

If I wind up bonding with the camera I will decide on what lens(es) I will be adding to the system. My instinct is to say either 45 or 55mm but there's some interest too in the 75mm f/4.5.

I've been browsing this thread casually for years now so I hope I can do it some justice and share some work once I start shooting.

I doubt I'd look into any of the longer lenses as that's not typically what I shoot, but what do you guys wind up favoring?

The 75mm f/2.8 seems to be made of unobtainium with an incredibly high price to match. I've read various reviews and I've seen various charts that claim "lens X is the best" but I'm curious to hear if you all have any favorites that you've experienced over the years. I'm definitely NOT going to go out and buy a whole bunch of glass for this thing, but I would say I'd be interested in 2-3 maximum.

Looking forward to contributing soon!

I enjoy the 105 a lot - use it with a P67. You can always add a +1 close-up lens (67mm) if at times the close focus range is not enough for you.

"... I'm curious to hear if you all have any favorites that you've experienced over the years. I'm definitely NOT going to go out and buy a whole bunch of glass for this thing, but I would say I'd be interested in 2-3 maximum. "


Well, you have the 105mm, which would not be my choice, but that is #1. The last or next earlier version of the 55mm 4.0 (#2) is a "must have". It equates to about a 28-30mm in 35mm format, and is considered one of the finest lenses in the P67 lineup. I find the 45mm too wide to get much use. For #3, either the 75mm 4.5 if you do mostly landscapes, or the 165mm 2.8 if you want a "walking around" lens. The 55mm is a bit more costly than average, but the 75mm and 165mm lenses are some of the least expensive. I presently own most of the P67 lens selection; I shoot mainly landscapes; my 55mm, 90mm, and 75mm represent 80% of my usage.

I love the 135mm f/4.0. It sports the famous Heliar lens formula of Voigtländer fame and renders very nicely for portrait at F/4.0 or F/5.6, with moderate contrast and buttery smooth bokeh (some nice portraits here). At f/11, contrast increases and sharpness is very good over the whole field, making it perfectly suitable for landscape work. Thanks to the Heliar formula, the lens is almost free from chromatice aberrations.

For a wider view, the Pentax 67 55mm F/4.0 (the last version of the 55mm lens) is the one to get, as stated by Randy.

55/4 and 135/4 lenses are complementary and make a nice lightweight kit (as far as P6x7 equipment can be considered light!), suitable for travels. It's also a very versatile kit as both lenses focus quite close (35cm for the 55 lens and 75cm for the 135 lens).

Cheers,

Abbazz

Congrats! But one does not "whirl" around with a P67... unless you want your arm to come out of its socket.

Ha! Thanks for the info gents. The 55mm (late, f/4) is definitely of interest and will very likely be one that I acquire. I wanted to see how I get along with the 105mm (I know there are mixed feelings regarding this lens) before I decided to keep or sell it.

My thought was that the 55mm would pair fairly well with the 105. The 90 is of interest as is the 75. Typically speaking in 35mm terms (not a perfect comparison, I know) I gravitate towards 28 and 50mm. Seldom going longer than that anymore but often going wider. I'm no stranger to 21mm and am quite fond of them in general.

I do like lenses in the 70-100mm range as well but I haven't really used anything in that space for some time now, though I'm not opposed to it. But as I mentioned, if I have to pick two, it's almost always going to be 28/50.

If you use flash (I don't) and need higher sync speeds, the 90mm f/2.8 Leaf Shutter has its purpose. I bought one and used it for a while, but now that I have the 105/2.4, the 90/2.8 sits with a pile of things I need to sell. In addition to the leaf shutter option, it's also a little smaller than the 105/2.4. The 90/2.8 is slightly wider than "normal" while the 105/2.4 is slightly longer; around ~45mm vs. 58mm respectively, in 35mm terms.

I primarily use 50mm, so with the 105/2.4, I find I have to take a step or three back from my usual framing distances.

I'm not much of a flash user to be honest, but if I really wanted to, I could always use my Hasselblad and its leaf shutter lens. When I used to shoot with an RZ67 I found that my main lens was the 90mm so it definitely is something that's potentially on the table. I'm not rushing to buy a bunch of lenses though.

Anyways! Here's some images from me on TMAX 400 and using the aforementioned P67II and 105mm

Haha, kind of like my son. Or at least the latter part, about having a lens in his face from the day we got him.

Happy Anniversary!

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the public release of our beloved Pentax 6x7, so I thought the event was worth a little mention here!

The first prototype, called Pentax 220, was presented at the 1966 Photokina in Cologne. It was a medium format camera shooting 10 6x7 pictures on 120 film. But it was also designed to take profit of the new 220 film format that had just been released in 1965. The prototype looked somewhat strange with a chrome body and a black prism finder:



Two years later, a prototype of the Pentax 6x7, as we know it with its black finish, was presented at the 1968 Photokina.

The camera was then released to the public in 1969. When the Pentax 6x7 was launched, Pentax was a very well known brand amd the most popular SLR worldwide was the 1964 Spotmatic, with more than 3 millions units sold. It is therefore no surprise that the 6x7 looks pretty much like an oversized Spotmatic.

But the first version of the 6x7 also had a few remarkable specifications. Most notably, it was the very first SLR with an electronically controlled shutter -the Asahi Pentax ES (Electro Spotmatic), which was the first 24x36 camera with an electronic shutter, only appeared two years later in 1971.

The 6x7 also had interchangeable viewfinders and was a dual format camera (120 and 220). It was able to squeeze 21 pictures from a 220 film roll, which partially made it for its lack of interchangeable backs for professional use. It was therefore rapidly adopted by a dedicated following of pro photographers (most notably in the fields of fashion, landscape and aerial photography).

Tonight, I will light a few candles to honor my two Pentax 6x7 cameras, which are still going strong despite their age!

Cheers!

Abbazz

Finally got one of these, but still waiting on a film transport repair. Gonna be shooting the Pentax 67 MLU w/45mm, 90mm, 105mm and also got a set of extension tubes. Pretty damn excited to get this thing moving after taking a long time to acquire my final kit and repairs.

You are very welcome!
The P6x7 was indeed a revolutionary camera for its time.

It is quite surprising indeed that Pentax never advertised the electronic shutter at the time the camera was launched. Maybe it's because the marketing guys at Pentax were afraid the pro photographers crowd (which was obviously the target market of this camera) would never buy a camera featuring an untested new technology.

All the advertising hype was reserved for the Electro Spotmatic two years later (which also sported an aperture priority automatic exposure mode):

Thanks, Abbazz, lots of interesting history. My Asahi Pentax 6x7 has a serial number 403XXXX. I read somewhere that the serial numbers started with 4000000, so I'm guessing mine is an early model. Nearing its 50th birthday, and still going strong so far! No idea if it has had any service during its lifetime.

Nearing its 50th birthday, and still going strong so far! No idea if it has had any service during its lifetime.
Contrary to what I read everywhere on internet, I think the earlier 6x7 were better built than the later ones. I have an early 6x7, which is still going strong and never caused any trouble, while my newer 6x7 with mirror lock-up has recurrent problems with frame spacing (and a broken aperture linkage chain).

Of course, two cameras hardly represent a statistically significant sample, but I prefer the earlier 6x7 because its film advance feels smoother than the 6x7 MLU's one and its shutter sounds more rounded. I also must add that I never use the mirror lock-up because I almost always shoot handheld. Finally, it's a shame that the 6x7 MLU is limited to 20 exposures when shooting 220 film, while the plain old 6x7 shoots 21 exposures --and I still have a bunch of Fuji 220 in the freezer.

Cheers!

Abbazz

Abbazz, I had the opposite experience... My non-MLU 6x7 was the one needing service early-on, while my late (just prior to the change to 67 naming) 6x7 has been flawless! Good point on the 20/21 frames on 220, but the P67II returned to 21 exposures along with numerous other improvements that make them my faves...

I totally loved my Asahi Pentax 6x7 camera, 135- Macro and 75mm.
Results were spectacular, never missed MLU.
I had to sell, too heavy!
Totally reliable, heard of one guy complain at a Pentax evening.
A pro shooting on average 7~10 rolls per day in portrait studio.
6 days a week, no services for a few years..
Wind mechanism was jammed with paper dust from film rolls.
But the weight!!

Got the big boys out and now loaded for bear!
I would love to try the 75 f/2.8 sometime, but unless I were to commit to the system completely I don't see that happening. Probably have a 55mm in my future though!
