Trigger pulled! Now to find a clean, stain free copy of the 105mm. I can't thank you all enough for your guidance through this!

Also, I'm sure it's all a matter of preference, but this body I bought doesn't come with the wood handle. I would venture that 80% of my time with this camera will be for portraits. Is there a consensus on the handle being essential with this camera? I have humongous hands if that is a factor...
While i haven't tried the left handed grip yet, they make right hand grips now that are pretty nice. The grip feels nice and solid, much better than what i expected from a 20$ 3d printed fleabay purchase. It really does make it easier to do portrait orientation, my large hand struggles to find grip without it.
Only put one roll through the camera before i sent it off for repair so no photos of the grip.

I got my set up from Japan, an ebay seller with great reviews. I am more than happy with it aswell. I enjoy the wooden handle and its handier then most would think.

Congrats! I haven't had a chance to really put mine through a shoot yet to know what grips I may or may not need, but I'm pleased with it so far!

There's an enormous number of them on e-bay. They must have sold well in its time....
