Latest Review Posted Pentax 6x7
Brought this in 2013 at ~US$330 equivalent, with a yellowed standard 105mm f/2.4 lens, and a non-metered prism. No MLU. No wooden handle. Slightly infected with mold. I love this camera a lot; this may be the only choice of 6x7 format that looks like a 135-format SLR.
