Additional Details
I have two of these phenomenal bodies and finders. Downsizing my kit to one body, you get the benefit. Stunningly reliable and images to die for...selling the less used, less traveled body. The other has cosmetic issues so I'll keep it.
AE pentaprism viewfinder makes this auto exposure camera work very similarly to modern DSLR's. I just use Aperture Priority and set the Ap. where I want it for depth of field and the camera sets the speed to match. Very simple, no exposure meter needed. Viewfinder offers spot metering if you need it.

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

I wish my K10d could pump out images like that!!!

Barring that,.... I wish I could afford the 67II.

Alas, neither is true. The first, never. And the second.... well not now....

Thanks for the comments Frank. Those images on a light table looking at chrome transparencies--well, my heart just skipped a beat even at the thought of it. And if you are kind enough to accept my off-color "I don't know what I'm doing" scans, you should see the 30"X40" Ilfochrome/Cibachrome prints. It's the kind of thing you don't look at on a computer screen, but rather hanging on the walls on display somewhere. Something about that medium format mystique.
By the way, my daily shooter is the K10D as well. Great tool. I like it very much.

Lower Price

Surprised at the low interest. 6x7 lenses are selling dirt cheap currently so building a medium format kit is pretty reasonably priced right now.
Can't go any lower, but price is more than fair...

Am interested. This is the kit that I want. I have the old 6x7 and I want AE. I just don't have enough cash now.

The price is fair and the system is excellent. It may be a cash flow thing for many.

Definitely. If I had the cash I'd be over it like a bear over honey.

I need an AF540FGZ Flash...so that could be a partial trade for someone?...I'll throw in 5 rolls of the previous version of Fuji Velvia 50--now discontinued (stored in a deep freeze). You know, the Velvia that was used by virtually every big name outdoor/landscape photographer for about two decades until they changed the formula a couple years ago...

Ron,

That is a very good price. I debated getting back into the 67 system. I used them for many years when doing product and advertising photography in the very late 70's thru the 80's and just found the ease of working with the camera and their output a joy. The lenses where expensive but they can be picked up for the proverbial song on ebay these days.

I'm tempted to go for it myself but I am currently continuing to expand my already large Pentax 645 system that I use in the studio. I probably loved the 67 as much as my still perfect LX's.

Good luck to you and some lucky buyer.

Stephen

Hi Ron,
Would love this kit but aussie dollar changeover is not good at this stage, fell 30% with the stock market. :-( If things improve and you still have it then I might be able to do something.
You'll sell it anyhow, just a matter of time.
Cheers Neil
