Standard lens for Mamiya 645 was a 80 f/2.8. They also did a f/1.9 version, and the following lenses
35, 45, 55, 110, 150, 210, 300 and a couple of zooms, 55-110 and 105-210.

There were others, some specialised, but those above are the ones you could usually get.

Of which the 110mm was magic and fairly rare. My 150mm is the sharpest of the ones I have.

No.....enter an item in the search bar, and when it brings up a page of the item you've entered, look down the left hand side of the page and tick the "completed listings" box under the heading "Show only". This will bring up a list of sold items with the price they went for.

Just seen this thread.... From the OP question...

Pentax LX, Pentax 67 and Nikon F5.

Loved my 'LX's' and '67'when I was a Freelance back in the '80's - the '67' was used for air-to-ground work and the 'LX's' predominately for Press stuff.

Then... along came the F5. Beautiful, beautiful camera. Now used very little (mores-the-pity)...

Thanks for that, there`s a huge difference between buy now and auction prices.

Previously I`ve only seen nlack ones going for 400, but there pretty rare.

Was one of the best 3.99 deals I`ve ever had Smile

Thanks Nick, I sold my old pro gear when I retired and the digital age was coming in and couldn't quite remember which lenses I had. What I do remember was my fondness for the Mamiya 6x4.5 kit and its excellent quality. Spare backs made them ideal for weddings as you never had to reload a film - just change the back, always remembering the thin slide which had to be inserted first.

My original Rollie 6X6 2.8 and my EOS 3 with eye focus. Think I might just stick a roll of film through now that you have rekinled my interest.

Always also wanted a Mamiya C33 but never got one.

You'll see some high priced Buy it Now stuff re-listed again and again.

My one travelled the world with me, -20C to +40C and apart from one battery failure, never once let me down.

Absolutly brilliant Smile

Yes, that with the 180mm or Hasselblad 500C with 150mm Sonnar. Or Canon V rangefinder with 35mm f2 Canon lens and the trigger wind on the bottom plate.

The Nikon F4 too. And the lovely old Canon Sureshot from the 80s, every pressman's 'little black dress' of a camera.

John Downing had one of those in his pocket when drinking in the hotel in Brighton when the IRA bomb went off. That was the one that took the famous picture of a shocked Thatcher being driven away from the scene.
