    Comments about Mamiya RZ67 Professional Pro II "D" Value Pack Medium Format SLR Camera Kit:

    I photographed hundreds of wedding with my Rz 67 with AE Prismfinder, motor drive, grip and Quantum Q Flash. My primary lens was the 90 mm and for portaiture, the 180 mm lens. I always used the 220 backs. Yes, this combination is heavy but I always had my heavy tripod with a quick release on it.I didn't shoot mounted on the tripod but had it near me to rest the camera on. Bottom line is, outstanding all around performance. Tack sharp lenses, fantastic viewfinder and the rotating back combine for great results.

    Comments about Mamiya RZ67 Professional Pro II "D" Value Pack Medium Format SLR Camera Kit:

    For the more than a year I have been using the Mamiya RZ ProIID camera and its lenses. I have been more than satisfied with its use. Some of its strong points include:
    -very good build quality of the camera and lenses. The lenses use metal barrels and Seiko shutters.
    -the bellows allow for close focusing. (remember the Rollei SL66?)
    -the rotating back alleviates the need for "L" brackets and turning the camera when going from vertical to horizontal images,
    -a single and readily available 6v battery supplies power to the camera and AE prism finder (which I use). Handy when you're out in the field.
    -all lenses from 50mm to 350mm except the 75mm use the same 77mm filter diameter.
    -the lenses are very sharp, and the APO lenses are great. The 2 wide angles and the macro use floating correction settings for near focus.
    -I assume you know the advantages of film since you're reading this, so interchangeable backs work well
    -Down sides? probably weight and cost. The lenses aren't cheap, and there's a nice line up.

    In summary, I really love this system.
