  • Summary: I must admit, I was dubious when reading the reviews of this lens. Surely no lens could be that good. Have just sold my Leica M7 body, and used the Mamiya 7II with this lens for a new boarders' party at the headmaster's house. Despite being off film photography (dust, hassle), I just developed the film (over-developed actually, as I forgot to start the clock!), the pictures staggered me by their presence and quality.
  • Pros: quality, definitiojn and presence.
  • Cons: F4 only. I live with it, and with the larger format it's OK.

  • Summary: Got this lens together with the mamiya 7 body. this lens do not need B/W filters to get the kind of contrast I like!!so that means I can get extra shutterspeeds. Yeah! colours rendition is very good when I'm shooting slides. highly recommened for streets shooters who want to blow up huge prints.
  • Pros: Lens very sharp, nice contrast with B/W films

  • Summary: The best lens I ever owned. An absolute beautiful lens. The sharpness of this lens is unbelievable. The color and contrast is simply amazing. I have no complaints about this lens what so ever. I chose this lens over the 80mm and the 43 because it suited my type of photography. I do a lot of outdoor shots and street photography. For group portraits this is a must. I also use it in the house a lot with a tripod and the images are just a dream come true.
  • Pros: Unbelievable sharpness, Well Built, Light, Small, amazing cantrast and sharpness.
  • Cons: They say that at f4 it is a bit slow. However I can still shoot handheld @ 1/30 and get great sharpness and detail.

  • Summary: Possibly the most versatile single lens for the Mamiya 7. I have taken a Mamiya 7 trekking with just this one lens and obtained marvellously sharp B&W negs which still look crisp when enlarged to 700x900 mm.
  • Pros: Compact, light for medium format., Excellent mechanical and optical performance., Sharp at all apertures but extremely good at f8 and f11., No detectable distortion ., Excellent resistance to flare., No need for separate viewfinder
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: I found this lens to be the perfect companion for a Mamiya 7 user. Its great for travel and street photography. If i could only have one lens on my Mamiya 7, this will be it. The pictures taken with the lens were well saturated and tack sharp.
  • Pros: * Extremely sharp, * Good saturation, * Good color, * Edge to edge sharpness, * Almost zero distortion
  • Cons: None
