Thanks very much for your help guys. I'll have to check the Ebay for some of your suggestions.
Just out of interest, is there any significant differences between the various AFD models? I did find a link to Mamiya PDF with a comparison but since Mamiya have updated their website, most links to anything AFD have disappeared entirely including that comparison PDF.
Hi Alastair -
There are quite a few differences from AFD > AFD-II, including:
- Mirror up button moved from side of camera to user button by exposure mode dial
- Self Timer moved from User Button to Shutter Release Mode Selector
- Many Custom Functions introduced with the AFD-II
I'm sure there are some other changes as well... I don't see any issue regarding use with digital backs between AFD or AFD-II, III, DF, etc. It is the AF without the D you have to be aware of. Schneider Leaf Shutter lenses and the V Grip Air are not compatible with any AFD bodies pre-DF (AFD, AFD-II, AFD-III).
I have the original PDF manuals for each camera if you like Alastair, just let me know.
