    Mamiya ZD perfect kit w AF 80/2.8, IR cut filter, FD301 Viewfinder, $2200

    Selling an exclusive medium format kit.

    This is the Mamiya ZD camera, which is different than the ZD back in that it is a full camera(body, viewfinder), ready to shoot. It is actually the lightest (only 1.5kg) medium format system. Unlike digital backs, this is a fully integrated and complete camera and sensor kit, ready to go.

    - Bigger sensor than the Pentax 645z
    - Better IQ at ISO 100-320 than most digital backs, usable at ISO 400 with very pleasing film grain. Very, very
    - Faster shutter burst than every digital back.
    - Modern customizable controls, very "Nikon or Canon like" ergonomics, feels great in hand.
    - "Small" size, looks and feels pretty much as any Canon 5dxxx, only a bit bigger.

    Mamiya released both a digital back and a fully integrated basically full frame digital camera that was technically so advanced for the time- it was never sol in the US and there were limited quantities in Asia and EU. Unlike a digital back, the body is built like an SLR, is only the size of a pro SLR, and is fully integrated (versus a separate camera and back that you have to turn on and manage batteries for). This is the fully integrated camera, very rare.

    The image quality is stunning, there is a cult following and many pro photographers still swear by it. It has a large 48x36 sensor (larger than the Pentax 645z and 645d as well as the Phase One 44x33 sensors). It's faster bursting than the medium format backs, which are less than 1fps. This camera has always kept up with what I need. The tones from this camera are the best and it has dual card slots (one CF and one SD, which was so advanced for the time), custom control menus, and pretty fast AF by medium format standards. Feels even better in hand, rock solid, and allows shooting at 1/20 without tripods

    Anyway, it comes with caps, 2 batteries, charger, etc and 2 very important extras - IR cut filter and Mamiya FD301 viewfinder magnifier (works perfect with any manual lenses)

    Selling the entire kit for $2200, which includes worldwide shipping and paypal fees.
    Located in Europe (traveling with me), except for the boxes and papers that will be shipped to you later.

    Besides, I have a few very good MF lenses for Mamiya if you like
    - Zodiac 8 30/3.5 fisheye - $220
    - Mamiya 645M 45/2.8 - $130
    - Mamiya 645m 120/4 macro - $400
    - Meyer Optik Gorlitz 300/4 (19 blades diaphragm!!) - $200

    I changed the lens for AF 55/2.8. Still for the same price!
