    So i got kinda bored with 35mm and I love to print my own 16x20's in fiber paper. Time for an upgrade. The UPS lady brought me a perfect condition Mamiya 645 AF with a 150 f/3.5 lens today. KEH:bowdown:

    what about it is confusing to you? i think the only thing about it that looks different than a 35mm camera is the back. that square thing underneath the viewfinder is the film back...where the film goes. besides that almost everything is the same.

    i got it from KEH...body and film back were EX+ condition and lens was LN-...total of $1300. not bad considering brand new it would be in the $4,500 for the same setup i have. honestly its in the same condition as brand new. there isnt a single scratch, scuff, ding, anything. not even any dust in the view finder.

    so there's your answer
