Hi Everyone,

I'm a new member shooting primarily 35mm film (Canon F-1N with three primes). I typically develop my own film at home, and, go to rental labs to print. I'm interested in getting into medium format, specifically exploring the Pentax 67 camera for tripod-mounted landscape and architectural work (combination of the two).



P.S. did the digital thing ... still do family snaps with a Lumix, but prefer film.

Hi and welcome - the 67 system is ridiculously cheap nowadays for the quality of the lenses if you can find them - just seems nobody wants them - but a bargain if you do.

Welcome to the forums Andrew! The 67 makes a great camera for landscape, there are plenty of great lenses for very modest prices out there. I really enjoy my 45mm and 165mm LS (these are the ones I use primarily on the 67) and would recommend those, as far as architectural, there is a 75mm Shift available but will cost a little bit more than the rest but may be worth your while given your plans.
