    Thanks, but I'd prefer to deal with a member of the forum.

    Found my 55mm. Anyone got a 65mm?

    I do have a 65mm I'd sell or trade, but it has some problems. I have never minded using it, but the problems do reduce the value. It has all sorts of cleaning marks front and back, for one. They might lower contrast and sharpness, but I have always wanted nothing from the pix this lens provided. (I do not have a clean version to compare it to, so I am not sure what it is supposed to look like.) Second, the lens board looks a little bowed to me. It never caused an issue with focus or leaks. Finally, when you press the shutter release, the shutter delays for a split second before opening. The speeds work, though.

    I have a 55mm and an 80mm I never found the 65mm necessary because it's too close to both focal lengths, and never missed not having the 65mm in the last twenty three years I've owned Mamiya TLRs.

    Thanks for the offer, Keith. I think I'll look for a lens with a few less issues, since it would be one of my primary lenses.

    Ben-- Only 23 years? You could still change your mind. I'm thinking of selling the 80 and getting the 100mm, so the 65mm seems like it would be a good match. Also, at this point, I'd just like to try some different focal lengths and see what works for me.

    Yes Barry 23 years, I've always believed that my best cameras are the ones that I'm most used to, that I can use without thinking.
