    Were there any 3rd party lenses made for the 645 1000s? Nikkor, Russian, etc.? I know Bronica had Nikkor lenses

    I'm really interested in anything with some ludicrous reach.

    I've had a M645 since 1985 and have never come across any third party lenses, and I don't believe any were made. However one or two third parties definitely did make a x2 teleconverter, but I can't remember who they were.

    I think there's a Ukranian company who adapt Russian and possibly CZJ lenses for Mamiya 645 cameras, and I believe they sell an adapter for Kiev 88 & 60 lenses.

    A quick search and there's quite a few adapters on Ebay to fit Pentacon Six as well as Kiev lenses to Mamiya 645's and they are inexpensice £20 ($31). These are cheaper than the Easter European ones as well. You have to stop the lenses down manually.
