    Anyone know for sure if the Polaroid 600SE (which is clearly a version of the Mamiya Universal) can take all of the Universal lenses? Or can it only take the lenses that it was advertised to go with?

    I believe the 600SE will only take the lenses specific to that body. The mounts are, I'm sure, slightly different.

    If they're only slightly different, it may be worth modifying the lenses and/or mount. I know some people "de-pin" their Mamiya RZ67 lenses for use on an RB67.

    There is no practical way to modify the lenses from one to the other.

    Thanks for your help! Nothing like APUG for good info.
