Summary: Image quality is quite good, very sharp (9/10) Bokeh is creamy at f4 and other apertures (9/10) Low aberrations and distortion (9/10) Very well built with some slight play for the front (9/10) Hard to manually focus, even harder for sports and moving subjects. Overall a great lens.
Summary: An excellent piece if glass. I'm going to use it for deep space wide filed astrophotography (a very tough filed for any lens) with cooled CCD, and my tests so far showed excellent color correction and super flat filed all over my (small) FOV, even wide opened. As expected from a 645 quality lens.
Summary: This lens was in perfect condition. I returned it only because I did not research it sufficiently to learn that the lens, by design, does not couple with the rangefinder. I wanted to make portraits with it and found that, it did not focus close enough for my needs and I did not have the means to accurately focus this lens at its closest range. Had I purchased it primarily for landscape work I would have kept it and used the depth of field scale to easily focus the lens.
Summary: If you have a Mamiya 645 medium format camera and need a bit more "reach" in a lens this one is great. It is surprisingly light and compact for a longer telephoto and the built-in lens hood helps keep your camera bag uncluttered. Optically it is very sharp and with the hood pulled out is flare free. Quality of construction and finish is very good and comparable to other Mamiya lenses.
Summary: Das Objektiv ist bekannt für seine Leistungsfähigkeit und auch seine Robustheit - diese hat natürlich ihre Grenzen, wenn man / frau keine Vorsicht beim Handhaben des Objektivs walten lässt, Das Objektiv ist zwar nicht übermäßig Lichtstark, dafür ist es sehr scharf und zeichnet sehr klar und ist für meine Begriffe über jeden Farbstich erhaben.
