Well, I picked up a Pentax 645 (old one) with a 75mm F2.8 lens (A lens), 120 back and 220 back. This thing is like a ROCK!

I currently have it attached via R-strap and the R-strap actually makes it quite comfortable to go street shooting with it!

Just shoot a test roll and it was really expired film... so it came out all grainy and such. But, I've been able to look past the real graininess and I can see the tonality just 'pop' in shots. It's fantastic!!

Looking forward to using it more! I have to say though... it's one heavy beast O_O.
