    Will 50mm lens fit.

    Can anyone tell me if the Mamiya Sekor CS 1:1.4 50mm Auto lens will fit the Mamiya RB67 Pro-S Camera? I am looking to add a 50mm to my outfit for wide angle landscape shots. Any help on a wide angle for this camera would be a help Thanks, Photocyan.

    That appears to describe a lens for a 35mm (135 format) camera, so no, it will not work.

    The "CS" probably means it is a Mamiya C lens, with a field of view of a "Standard" lens.

    Is your question in reference to this eBay listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/MAMIYA-SEKOR...-/170801288101?

    That listing is clearly for a lens for the 135 format.

    Yes it is. Thanks for the info. I had thought the same but the price was worth checking out. I am new to the Mamiya want a wide angle lens to round out the other three. Thanks, again.

    Welcome to the club. The RB67 is a fantastic shooter. My go-to camera. Heck. I just used it yesterday at a burned down house.

    Great piece of gear.

    Good luck with yours.

    The 50mm C lens for RB67 is not very likely to come that cheap. But who knows? You may get lucky. I got mine in a lot with a bunch of other stuff, so it was a bit cheaper than it normally goes for.

    Also, let me add/suggest:

    A lot of people consider the 50 too wide on the RB. There are a lot of people who actually prefer the 65mm C which is also less expensive.

    I've never used the 65 and the 50 just happened to fall into my lap last year, so I can't really say which I'd prefer, but you may be able to do okay with just the 65.

    I had 50mm vs 65mm issues, I got around them by getting both (65mm second hand and in a bad way but very cheap, got it repaired) and the 50mm brand new at a stupidly low clearance price. I found that if on a 35mm system you really liked a 24mm lens, then go for the 50mm for a real wide effect. If you liked a 35mm lens on 35mm format, then go for the 65mm. Personally I use the 50mm and a 90mm as a good combination, the 65mm is a bit close to the 90, though if I was only taking one lens out, it would be the 65mm. Guess that doesn't help much does it?

    Of course it helps. That's great advice. More info and opinions make it easier for someone to figure it out.
