One of the main problems with shooting a 645AFD DB mounted on a RZ67 proIID seems to be the big crop factor (1.5 that if I understand right would convert a 50mm RZ67 lens into the 35mm equivelent of about a 35mm lens, correct?). It would be great if this could be overcome by revolving the back and moving the adapter plate to stitch two "portrait" images together to make a panorama (6x9cm?). Is this doable?

Main obstacle as far as I can see could be the design of the Mamiya hx701 RZ67 to 645DB adapter plate? Is it moveable or are you stuck with the image fixed squarely (or oblong-ly) in the center of the frame? Looks like not possible due to placement of the electronic connections (if nothing else). What about using a more primitive plate on an older RZ67 camera with cables?

If not then I guess no way stitching would be possible by moving the back.

Could  a panorama adapter (expensive?) or some other fiddling around with the front end (ie lens and mount) be an alternative to enable stitching?

Or perhaps better just to buy a cheap 645AFD body...

Currently there are no RZ sliding back adapters that I am aware of.  I shoot with an RZ Pro II and hope one day that one day the sensors will be up to the 6x7 size.  In the mean time a 645 AFD body w/ lens is only about $800-$900.

If 645 AFD is so cheap why do you shoot with an RZ Pro II?

What adapter plate do you use with the Pro II? Is it the Mamiya HX701 that I thought only works on the Pro IID or is there an alternative (more affordable) adapter plate option for mounting a 645MFDB on an RZ Pro II (or any other 67 system)

How does shooting with a MFDB on the RZ Pro II compare with the Pro IID?

Hope not too many questions!
