    Does anyone have an instruction booklet for this M645 lens? I've tried the familiar sources such as Craig's List w/o success. Mamiya has a number of manuals on their web site but only for cameras. Instructions for the RB67 series soft focus lenses do not apply as the design principles of the lenses are completely different (this one does not use the 'tea-strainer').
    Many thanks to the APUG community,
    Russ

    Thanks ever so much! Your googling skills far exceed mine.
    Just exactly what was required.
