    I am looking for the Mamiya-Sekor 50mm f6.3 lens for the Mamiya Press/Super 23/Universal System. Cosmetics are not important, but must function.

    I do have one, with the finder, but it's rather nice. Perhaps I could grind some paint off it?

    No, that would be a shame! :smile: If you would like to sell it, please send me a PM. If you do not wish to sell it, then you are just showing off, and that's cool. I would too, if I had that lens:smile:

    Better yet, show off amazing pictures made with the lens.

    My friend Sam Wang built a camera that uses 5X7 film to make circular negatives with the 50mm Mamiya Press lens and he did some beautiful work with it. His book that has just been published in China contains many circular images made with the 50m Mamiya lens and his home made camera. He has a show opening in a few days in Shanghai in conjunction with the publication of the book.

    The 50mm Mamiya lens is a great lens, almost distortion free and sharp. But use a lens hood with it as flare can be a problem.
