This is my first venture into medium format after having used a multitude of 35mm cameras and digital slr's for over 35 years. I always wanted to try medium format. The digital cameras that I have are terrific in many respects and I have printed many beautiful photos. I was a bit worried about this purchase mainly because of the bad publicity that many seem to post on the web about this camera. Got my first color negatives back and I am extremely happy with the results. Framing is evenly spaced out, and colors are very saturated, pictures are very sharp, and the TTL light meter is spot on. I had read so many threads on how these cameras were not very good. The normal lens on this camera is very sharp. You must however keep your hand over the depth of field button for anything focused any closer than one meter. Light seems to penetrate on the sides of the button. This is not really a problem as long as you know. Flocking the interior as many have mentioned was not an issue. Mine had the minimal amount of flocking included. I painted some parts of the mirror box with Kodak dull black just to make sure. I think that these cameras are underated. Has anyone else use a Kiev 60?
