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.
