    I'm not sure I understand the question, but I can't really get it into focus any closer to the subject than about three or three and a half feet with the 80mm lens.

    I am not sure, but for some reason, the distance of 43mm comes to mind, you might check the message system at Mamiya USA and do a quick search over there.

    The registration distance is the distance between the lens mount and the film. I checked Markerink's list, and it's not there.

    Also called the flange focal distance.

    If you want the official number, a phone call or email to Mamiya should get it. If you want a measured number, I could stick a depth gauge into my 7 later today.

    Best,

    I quite like the hair too. I measured 60.00 mm from the front of the flange to the film plane. The throat is 49 mm diameter. "For information only"
