    Default Any users of mamiya 645DF or similar?

    I have taken a huge gulp and am moving from my H2 & P20 & lenses over to the mamiya platform. It's a big step for me, I have agreed to purchase a Mamiya 645DF body, AF 80mm/2.8 D, and AF ULD 105-210mm f4.5. So advise/hints/tips from anyone who has used this gear would be very welcome.

    I'll also be getting a digital back of some type, and have my eye on 50mm, 35mm & a 300mm lenses.
    The reason for this decision is that it is getting far too expensive to upgrade to a better H series camera, and you are limited to one body / one back. So I'll have an H2 body with viewfinder, and HC 50-110 zoom, 150 & 210 mm lenses for sale. I may see if I can trade the P20 on a larger P series back.

    I know it's mostly 35mm here but I think Stan has some mamiya gear and maybe there are other people who have used mamiya MF.

    I used 645 bronica for weddings and portraiture. It sure made you take careful photos, 15 shots per roll.
    I liked the ground glass with the magnifying hood. Live view eats that now. Though usually I used prism viewfinder with metering.

    I think James Yang has mamiya gear unless he's upgraded already.
