Hi all -
Have a trip coming up and decided to bring the Bronica. Started trolling for a second back, something I've been doing off and on for years. They seem to have accelerated in price lately, like most everything on the used market. Not sure who's buying at those prices... Anyway, while searching found a used 120 back from a reputable seller for a fraction of the price they seem to be going for. Took a chance. Seems fine, not beaten up, appears to work. Loaded up now to see how the seals are, but I already confirmed with John Goodman that he can still supply a kit for it. I never changed the seals on my original back a few years ago, so I'm hopeful.Then
, while looking for backs, found a 110/4 macro that I've been trolling for for a few years. Contacted the seller. It's well used so the price was good. Aperture ring is a little stiff, but works. Got it with caps, a bag, and a hood.
The whole kit, as it now stands - SQ-A, 80/2.8 S, 50/3.5 S, 110/4 PS Macro:Bronica Bits

I'm hoping to burn this roll of film today and see how the back and lens fare. Gotta love GAS.
