Get a grip!

The boys with their newly installed grips: 67II, 67, 6x7:

Egad, three 6x7s! Reinforce that table!
Seriously: Phil, if you've had a lot of opportunity to use these, do you find the 67 materially different/better than the 6x7 in use? I've had 6x7/67 GAS forever and continue to ponder which model I'd get if I ever pull the trigger. (I know the 67 II is an entirely different, electronic creature--simply far better in terms of modern technical conveniences--but kind of out of my price range.)

A 6x7 with MLU and a 67 are the same camera operation wise. The 67 has a few internal mechanical improvements that were added to the 6x7 over the years. The last 6x7’s and the 67 are supposed to be identical.

As you mentioned the 67II/AE prism are an entirely a different & more expensive camera.

If you are choosing between the 6x7 and 67 I would recommend the 67, as it will most likely be in better shape.

To be truthful when I got my first P6x7 body a couple years ago, I saw no use for the wooden grips. I have changed my mind and they are actually pretty handy.

Very lovely. This isn't helping my 6x7 GAS at all though

Thanks Phil. I'm trying to convince myself that I already don't sufficiently use the Bronica, the Rolleiflex, and the Super Ikonta enough as it is, so why do I need a 6x7/67? But everyone says they're so awesome...and they're Pentaxes,,,and the glass can be adaptered onto my K-mount Pentax SLRs/DSLR...and no other of my medium format gear is 6x7 format...and ... and ...

It definitely doesn't compare to some of the beautiful stuff posted in here, but here is my inherited LX/50mm 1.2 sitting on my desk at night.

The LX and Pentax's ulitmate "Fast Fifty" are definitely a wonderful combo!

I just love this old minty black Pentax Spotmatic! I got it with the 55/1.8 and original leather case.

Nice camera! Had such a nice one long ago but it was so untouched I was afraid to use it. Essentially traded it for an LX (money for money).

Joe Cocker's You Are So Beautiful comes to mind.

I hope it works as good as it looks!

Thanks!
I really hope so too!! Shutter seem to be correct at all speeds, self-timer works fine and light meter seems to be accurate. I only have to test it with film to be sure.

After much hunting, managed to add a waist level finder to the profile with magnification and diopter info.

In that case I am still short an FA-1W which is the wider diopter range version of the FA-1.
