Summary: Great camera! High product quality, reliability, ergonomics as a 35 mm SLR, ideal location of the film inside the camera, has all the necessary features, high quality images. Minus: there can be problems with sharpness when shooting handheld for a bounce mirror. When using a tripod - no problem! No hot shoe for flash and sync only 1/30 sec.
For it's use,it's unmatched-and looks to be that way for the near future.

Summary: I purchased this a awhile ago,and I have to say it has lived up to my expectations.The matrix metering is spot on even in demanding scenes-ok nothing is perfect,but this has surprised me.The metering works with the mirror locked up too.There is a metering lock button which works like push it once and it locks the value,and push it again it releases it.Not like normal cameras where you have to hold it in,thank god.Very rugged,and anatomical correct.It's heavy,there's no...
The prized and highly respected, Pentax 67II is now legendary
12 June 2011
Summary: The Pentax 67II is the updated version of the long highly regarded 6x7 model. The revisions have improved the handling ability greatly. The AE finder with the aperture priority setting works beautifully. It has everything you want on it and nothing you don't. It is the alpha dog of the Pentax system. Much sought after, with many people holding on to these cameras, it's easy to see why.
Summary: I loved my Pentax 67. The inexpensive lenses created beautiful large negatives and huge lush slide. The ability to shoot such a large format with a camera that felt and handled like the 35mm SLRs that I had shot on my whole life was great, and it was built like a tank, seemingly able to handle anything I put it through and then some. All of this for a relatively small investment.
Summary: This is a tank and ardennerhorse in the world of cameras, but with all the fine image qualitys You can ask for.The ¨new¨ii model is a great improvement from the older one, with a very good light metering including automatic shutter speed and exposure compensation. The new lock for opening the back also saves your nail, especially in winter.
Pentax 67II Professional Medium Format Film Camera
20 January 2009
Summary: This Medium Format Film Camera, that is still used in many professional shoots, provides a 6X7cm (2.25X 3.25") image. Scanning this piece of film with a highest resolution provides a file that is many times larger than all but a few digital cameras that cost tens of thousands of dollars. Easy to use as it feels like a 35mm camera it has features that are valuable.
Summary: The original 67 was a good and reliable workhorse, good lenses for the format at a fraction of the price of a Zeiss/Hassie, you got much more than a fraction of, admittedly, the standard of medium format optics. The 67II was a great leap ahead, better focusing, easier film loading, exposuer meter complete reading in the AE viewfinder reading, automatic exposure, ttl flash even if the synchronization maximum shutter speed makes it of little use.
Summary: Note that the two prior reviews do not discuss the listed model, but deal with prior models of the Pentax 67 system. The first review indicates problems with the leaf shutter lenses in use; there should be no problem if the lenses are working properly, however they are limited in practical use. Also, contrary to statement of the reviewer, there is no interchangeable film back for any model of this camera, no matter how hard you look.
