    Does anyone have experience using the Arsat 30mm lens on a Mamiya 645 AF series camera?
    I know it is a manual lens and just wonder if it works without any accessories on an auto-focus 645 Mamiya.

    well, obviously you'll loose AF feature and you'll have to use it in stop-down metering mode, just like any MF M645 lens.

    Why should the 30mm ARSAT Fisheye not working on Mamiya 645 AF camera? I am using my 30mm ARSAT Fisheye lens successfully for many years on my Contax 645 AF and 6x6/4,5x6cm WIESE-PENTASIX 636 camera.

    Cheers
