Good deal?

Pentax 645 Camera with SMC-A 75mm f2.8 Lens - eBay (item 250791123218 end time Mar-26-11 13:57:45 PDT)

i think its not a bad price - ive seen the body go for more by itself so i am happy to get the lens too. does a medium format 75mm lens equate to roughly a 50mm lens on 'regular' cameras? is this considered the 'kit' lens?

been shooting 120 film in a yashica mat that i love but pentax is my brand of choice - happily stepping back in time to FILM!

thoughts on the 645? worth 255 with this lens??

thanks all-

Yes, it corresponds to a 50mm on film and a 37.5mm on digital.

This price is fairly common, but definitely a good deal nevertheless. I remember getting mind for around that if not less.
