Looking for information, opinions or recommendations for a digital back for the Mamiya RB 67 Pro-S. Thanks.

I have an RZ67 and a Lightphase back. There is no problem with quality but there are other problems you should know about.
Firstly, you will need wide-angle lenses to avoid the 'telephoto effect' which may be a problem, depending on your type of photography, and secondly critical focus can become a problem (again because the sensor is so much smaller than the film) and you may find that you need to stop down just to ensure that you can get away with focussing errors.

Garry's right. Get a flip magnifier to check critical focus when working wide open.
