The one thing the Pentax doesn't have is bellows focusing, which may or may not be a dealbreaker. Six and one, really, but I'm a big fan of the RB/RZ solely for the lenses and most especially, the revolving back.

I've seen quite a few excellent handheld shots with the P67. It's definitely doable, but that wooden handle thing is probably necessary for most people.


It's kinda weird that the Pentax 67 has such extreme issues with mirror slap. The 645 has none whatsoever. I can use it on a $7 tripod at any shutter speed and there is no detectable loss of sharpness. It's better than any 35mm camera I've used in that respect.

Doable, sure, but... only kinda. Same with the RB, but to a different, lesser extent. I want a Mamiya 7, though, real bad.

Anyone knows where I can have a Nikon DX lens fixed? I have a D70 and the lens does not function as it should.

Full spec is AF-S Nikkor 18-70mm.

Thanks.

The Mamiya 7 looks awesome. My first choice for MF would be a Linhof 23s with some of those Schneider digitar lenses. It's not hand-holdable at all, but the movements are a fair tradeoff for that imo.

You'll probably have to send it back to Nikon for repair. Is it still under warranty? Their lenses are five years if bought from an authorized reseller iirc.

7s are beast, the lenses are amazingly good and they're fairly light cameras with a size that belies the quality images they're capable of. The metering is a bit wonky, and you still have to deal with parallax error, but it would really make for a great street-shooter with B+W film.

Thanks for the info. I bought it at Ritz and it should still be under warranty. Thanks so much.thumb.gif

Yeah, I saw some sample pictures a while back that showed the lenses basically rivaling 4x5 lenses for overall image sharpness, but the film was holding it back somewhat. Imagine those lenses with one of the new 80 megapixel phase one sensors. That'd be incredible.

Thoughts on the Canon 20mm f/2.8? Looking to to WA/UWA

Considering both this lens, and the Sigma 10-20mm, but I'd definitely prefer a faster lens, as it'll be used indoors quite a bit.

Awful, awful piece of crap. Probably one of the worst, if not the worst lens Canon makes. Soft, purple cast, pricey. 16-35L is what you're looking for if you need speed(ish), 17-40 if you don't.
