645N or...

I like take a 645N + 75mm f/2,8 (for 750 euros, approximately 1020 USD): I have 67II with 55mm f/2,8, Hassy with Distagon 50mm and Planar 80mm, D3, M6.
Is best buy 645N+75mm or another lenses for 67II (or Hassy)?
My interest are landascape and buildings.
Thank's

If you have a 67II, buy as much 67 lenses as you can.
This is the ONLY solution... or do you want to trade your 67II ?

Hello,

I would rather consolidate the 67 system with a couple more lenses. This will give you two systems for tripod photography - 67 and 66.
If you are looking at a light MF body for traveling and street shooting, I would consider:
1) TLR >66
2) Fuji GA645 RF645 "pocket MF" AF and all the other stuff
3) Fuji Folder
4) Fuji GSW690 or GW690

Don't get me wrong I have a full blown P645 system and I like it for travel but I am not sure you want to carry three systems P465 with 3/4 lenses, 67 with 3/4 lenses and Hassy with 3 lenses.

Edit: If I was starting from scratch again - I would simply get a 67II with 3 lenses for tripod work, a TLR (Autocord or Rollei 2.8 because the lens is so damn good), a Medalist (because the lens is so damn good) and a Fuji GSW690/GW690 because they are rugged, simple, easy to handhold and perfect for travel.
Thinking about it I find having both the P645 and Hasselblad systems somewhat redundant but I do not have the patience to consolidate to only one system.


Cheers,

Luc

If you want to shoot 6x4.5, get a an A16 back for the Hasseblad and another lens.

Thank', thank's, thank's for your very good suggestions!
My idea of buyng a 645N was destroyed.
I am persuaded for another lens for 67II, like 165mm f/2,8 (fs999 and Ibenac) and get an A16 back for Hassy (wow, tuco, amazing idea!).

Cheers,

roberto

For me, the SMC-A 35mm f/3.5 lens for P645 was an amazing value and reason enough to consider the format. The 645N or NII are the best film cameras for that lens. Turned out to be one of my favorite camera/lens combinations ever.

Problem now is the used prices of 645 lenses seem to be skyrocketing, now that the 645D is out.

Why would the P645 not be as good with that lens then the 645N/NII?
