    my 80mm Mamiya lens (for 645) has a gummy diaphragm and it apparently is going to cost as much as the lens is worth to get the diaphragm cleaned.

    Has anyone got a clean 80mm manual focus lens for a Mamiya 645 with a snappy diaphragm and clean glass?

    Please PM me

    f2.8 is OK. Would prefer the "N" version, but the non "N" is ok.

    I was just asking since others would need that info...in the mean time, what do you plan to do with the sticky one? If you plan to toss it or sell it super cheap send a PM my way!

    In my case, my 110mm f/2.8 and my 55mm f/2.8 serve together as my "standard" kit.

    So the 80mm f/4 macro gives me 80mm, and adds excellent close focus capability. Don't discount the 80mm f/4 macro as a possible choice.
