fourth lens for the successful Bronica RF-645 Rangefinder camera has just been
announced by Bronica, Japan.
Developed exclusively for the RF-645, the
world's first 6x4.5 format rangefinder camera with interchangeable lenses, the
new Zenzanon RF100mm lens provides excellent image quality by efficiently and
precisely compensating for aberrations.
"Variation Gauss Type"
based on the symmetrical optical configuration has been adopted for the optical
system, which contributes to making the overall dimensions of the lens relatively
smaller by shortening the length and portioning power to the front and back groups.
This type of optical system is widely incorporated in the current Zenzanon P Series
lenses for the 6x6 system.
The RF100mm carries a suggested retail price
of 499.99 and will be available from April 2002.
