I Bought a Pentax 67 II in June 2000 because I wanted the most compact and lightweight 6x7 slr I could find for landscape and travel photography. Although I am a regular tripod user I find it very useful to be able to hand hold the camera down to 1/30 sec with wide angle lenses and down to 1/60 sec with the 105mm standard lens. With the mirror locked up this camera is capable of producing sharp images with the camera on a very light tripod and using the often suspect shutter speeds of 1/2sec to 1/15sec.
Build quality is up to professional standards and while it is not the most versatile camera around with only a 1/30sec flash sync speed and no interchangeable back for me its ease of use wins through.
