Hi, I am new here. A couple of months ago I swopped some lighting material for a Mamiya 645 AFD II with a ZD back (the single buffer one) with a 80mm 2.8 and 210mm 4.0
I did testing and comparing with other cameras such as 5D MKII, D800, OMD

And I was very surprised that a 10 year old gear was still able to give some fighting to recent dslr
So my question is.... knowing that this gear is becoming obsolete by minute, and I really love the feel of taking photography with it....
1- Keep it as is
2- Sell the ZD Back and get a better back, I do not want to ruin myself, is the Aptus II 22Mb such a difference
3- To finance the price difference I would sell a Hasselblad 500c with 50 and 150mm grip, several backs etc..... maybe I am too optimistic.
4- Sell everything so I avoid price drop and come back in a couple of years time to get more money and go for someting really better.
I would use it mainly for portrait, so even if I kept what I have, I may swap the 210mm for a 150mm as the 210mm is really long for my taste.
