Mamiya 7 II Medium Format Rangefinder Manual Focus Camera Body - Black

B&H # MA72B Mfr # 215-020
No Longer Available

Mamiya's unique 6x7 format rangefinder camera, the Mamiya 7 II, is now even more versatile. This camera is the only 6x7cm rangefinder system which features either interchangeable lenses or a light meter.

With the increased demand from pros and advanced 35mm shooters, the Mamiya 7 II features an improved rangefinder, simplified exposure compensation, improved ergonomics and the option of a professional all black finish.

The Mamiya 7 II has high visibility frame lines in the focusing system so that the bright frame appears clearly in the rangefinder, even in the case of intense ambient light. Three strap lugs now make the camera easy to carry in either vertical and horizontal positions. The location of the cable release socket has been moved to the more accessible bottom-right side of the body. Like its predecessor, it is a "quick on the draw" camera that handles with 35mm ease.

            This is the second one I've got. It is the best camera that I worked with. The 6x7 format is one of the few great formats out there.

                Comments about Mamiya 7 II Camera Body:

                I use my Mamiya 7ii for social landscape documentary. I use it with the 65mm lens exclusively. It is true what many critics say: the 'feel' of the camera and lens is not what you get from Leica, Hasselblad and even analogue Nikon gear. It feels lighter and, less solid. But it use it will not let you down and it is much much sturdier than you may think. I've taken mine all over the world in the last four years and shot hundreds off rolls with it. It never let me down.The results are very, very consistent. The sharpness the best I've encountered in MF. In use, the camera is a sheer joy. Reduced to the max: key functions only. Expensive but worth every penny.

                  Comments about Mamiya 7 II Camera Body:

                  I've been a user of the Mamiya 7 camera since 1999. At that time, I figured it would be the camera I used forever. I continue to think it will be. I'm primarily a street, cityscape/landscape shooter.

                  I needed the Mamiya 7II as a alternate primary camera to the eleven year old Mamiya 7 that I use, but has not had a CLA in years. I continue to be amazed at the image quality that is achievable with 2 1/4 even though I've been shooting for quite some time.

                  Hand-holding of exposures at 1/15 is truly a wonder so low-light photography is workable with minimal action/movement

                  Obtaining beautiful results with enlargements of 20 inches and higher.

                  I found that there will probably never be a camera that is "perfect" for me. The Mamiya 7 cameras have come the closest to that end. I've learned to work with the limits that are inherent with it and build on the foundation of what it does best.

                  A wonderful medium format rangefinder that is simple to use. However, If you're coming from 35m you'll wish it had faster shutter speeds and faster lenses.
