I remember some tests were conducted back then and the original P645 were so well designed MLU was not a practical concern (unlike the P67). I have no 1st hand experience though.

i see that the 67 has lock up in all of them?

There is a 67 at my local shop, unbelievably good condition, A$950... but the 645 still looks good for the future digital upgrade.

hmmm, decisions, decisions!

When I looked for a 645 system camera for wide-angle remotes, the criteria was that it had to offer the best ROI. The Pentax 645N won out over Bronica system because of all the features that come standard on the body (built in winder, metering, gorgeous viewfinder). Too the 35mm f/3.5 SMC-A is a stellar piece of glass that I found for cheap a few years ago. Only thing I'd change is it'd be nice to have leaf shutter capability with that lens. (But not at the expense of the 1' minimum focusing distance. Also Pentax has no TTL with it's leaf shutter lens implementation.)
Couldn't be happier with the results on Fujicolor Pro160S or Ektar 100 or Astia 100F.
