    - great build quality. - great, sharp lenses (Zeiss AND Schneider) - superb build-in meter (average,spot, multispot), even without prism - retains value - allows programming of the most special features without MasterWare/MasterControl - focusindication is very usable


    Up to now, I haven't found any.

    I used to own a Mamiya RZII with several lenses which I bought five years ago, because I couldn't afford a 6008 at that time. The RZ is cheaper, because it has no meter and motordrive. The RZ is a great camera, but very bulky and heavy, especially with the metered prism and is sometimes cumbersome to use. The mirror-prerelease was most annoying. After two years of consideration and some loss of money I sold the RZ and bought the 6008AF. And I am very happy, I finally took this step. The 6008 has much better ergonomics and is really handholdable because of it's righthanded grip. I had the L-Grip for the RZ, but wasn't able to hold it with my left hand. The 6008 is very easy to use and has a high level of automation. The meter is very accurate and a joy to use. The mirror is released with the press of a button. No attaching of a cable release to the lens like with the RZ. So far I only own two lenses, the 2.8/80mm Xenotar and the 2.8/180mm Tele-Xenar which both are marvelous. The 180mm is a bit on the heavy side, but the shallow, snap sharpness at 2.8 is worth the pain. To sum it up: I would buy it instantly again, if I ever should drop mine of a mountain.

    I had no breakdown, yet. But I was in contact with the service to clarify some details about used equipment.
