    Help with Cambo lens

    Now that my Phase/Mamiya gear has sold I need to proceed to the next step. I've been shooing with a 35 and 72mm lens on my Cambo RS1000 and want to pick up a longer lens. Cambo shows a 120mm for the RS and after some digging around and checking Schneider's website I see they offer both a 150 and 180 digitar lens.

    Here's my question for those who use a Cambo RS 1000. While I understand that either the 150 or 180 can be fitted for the RS1000 will there be a problem with weight/length hanging off the body? Am I asking for problems or am I just making up potential problems?

    Let me know your thoughts...

    Thanks Don

    Longer than the 72?
    I lust for the 72 myself.
    The 120 looks like it might be best if the double spacer approach is used.

    Hi Bob

    The 72 is a great lens I just want to go a little longer. Everything I've read on Cambo's site leads me to think the 120 is the better/best lens but I want to do a little more snooping before I decide.

    Thanks for the input
