Ok Ed, you start to go down this road of shooting and developing medium or large format, and you will be hooked! I have some wonderful digital cameras H3DII, D3s, D3, Gs10, and I haven't touched one of them in over a year. Nothing but my medium and large format film cameras.

Congrats! And, have fun!!

Yes, Mamiya offers a great line up of lenses too. They make their own glass from which the make their own lenses. I own an RZ and find I am shooting it more often for landscape then my 4x5. {robably because i am getting old and cranky and the RZ is so much less hassle and the quality of lens is excellent.

nice looking camera, i think the 645j was my first medium format camera, they are great cameras and very reasonably priced, the "N" series of lenses are top notch. i still have a 645 body someplace around here but no lens,

Looks very much like the first MF outfit I bought in the distant past. I later "advanced" to the Mamiya 645 1000S, which I still use. These are tough cameras, much more robust than the later modells with changeable backs.

You will probably find, that the hardest part in MF photography is, to get the film into the developping reels. When I tried first time, I got it all messed up and then sacrificed a roll to practice in broad light and then in the darkroom, before I gave a freshly exposed roll another try.
