    Looking for an optically clean specimen of the 75mm shift lens for the Mamiya RB67. Thanks!

    I have a superb one for the RZ67 if you could use that instead? Also have a bunch of the other tilt-shift stuff for RZ if anyone needs it. (75 SB lens, 180 SB lens, spacer, etc.)

    Hi Ed, thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, the RB lenses fit RZ cameras, but not the other way around. I have considered getting an RZ kit just to use this more widely available lens. If it comes to that I'll let you know! Do you just have the SB one, or do you also have the stand-alone 75mm shift RZ lens?

    hi -

    I have both - the 75 shift, and the 75SB. I would have to agree the RZ would be a nice upgrade in all ways, if you go that route.

    re: 75s, - be aware that some of these (most?) had issues with cement going bad in a cemented doublet in the rear group of the lens. It manifests itself as a haze that can't be removed. I had to go through 4 of these lenses before I found ones without the haze. (both mine are clean in that way).

    That's the impression I've received, based on some of the sad ebay specimens I've seen advertised. Thanks for confirming it! If going with an RZ for this lens looks like my route I'll let you know, in case yours is still available.

    Hi Ed, Just out of curiosity what are you asking for your RZ shiftables?
