I've been taking a Fuji GSW690III for a test spin lately. Have any of you long-time medium format shooters used this camera before? I have a question about the eyepiece. Anyway here are a few with 400TMY loaded, FWIW.

I have a GSW690II. Not sure if the eyepiece is the same or not, but what is your question?

Is the stock eyepiece a -1 diopter?

I think I found the answer. Yes, -1 diopter for "normal" vision. Mine came with 0, apparently. It was blurry but I put a -1 on and all is good. I like the camera so far. It is a bargain condition camera and way more rugged than my Mamiya 7II which is just too delicate for what I want one for. This Fuji I can toss in a backpack and not worry about it too much. I'll be selling the M7II it looks like.

Well, I love my Fuji, the only film camera I have left or probably will ever have again, unless I can find a 6x9 rail that isn't too much....although I would certainly pause before selling a beautiful M7II! I didn't know they were "delicate".

Oh, yeah, really delicate at least from my point of view. It's been to the shop once already and the 43mm add-on view finder frame lines came loose and I sent that in to get fixed too. And I almost lost that thing and of course forget to bring it along because I left it in another backpack kind of thing. It too would be a hard to find item and bring down the value of the 43mm lens if you didn't have it.

And once pulling the camera out of my backpack the rubber around the view finder sheered off. I didn't notice it for a while and when I did I had to back-track my history that day to find it and fortunately I did (it's just rubber glued on). It would be a hard-to-find item and really bring the value of the camera down when selling it if I had lost it.

But the Fuji with its no batteries, fixed lens (no spending more on lenses) and no light meter is right up my alley. I shoot most of my daytime shots without a light meter anyway. Close enough for me.

Thanks for that. I want to try this wide angle lens of the GSW on people too. I've done people with the 55mm on my 6x7 and if you keep the camera level and people near the center it can do okay especially for candid stuff and I think the 65mm should be about the same on this 6x9.
