    I have the N and the C but honestly haven't don't a thorough testing of the two. I probably should now that I have the appropriate adapter and could do it on my NEX5, although that wouldn't be of much help in comparing the extreme edges. I've kept the C because it is a bit unique. It's marked "sample". 45/2.8C

    You mentioned the holy trinity but personally I've been more intrigued by the 35/3.5 It gives a rather unique view. example shot at 35mm

    The term holy trinity is a term thrown about on the d*****l Canon forums denoting the 28, 50 and 85 EOS mount lenses and their respective 1.8 / 1.4 / 1.8 apertures. That 35 does look nice but I want the 2.8 of the 45 especially now that I will be shooting some Techpan soon

    I'm sure you will enjoy the 45mm!
    I like the 80/1.9 a lot too!

    I must say I'd be very interested in seeing a comparison of the old and new 45's as they are a significantly different design. Shooting them on a crop camera would probably not show much difference.

    I have the 45 N and find it quite nice (on a 5d2, not film or M645) but all the Mamiya 645 lenses (except maybe the A lenses) seem to suffer a little from CA wide open.

    I have recently bought 45mm C lens and it has 67mm filter size. To your attention.

    I have 45/2.8 (can't remember which.. I've hardly used it. I think is's the 67mm one), 55/2.8, 2x 80/2.8's (1 C, 1 N... you get them with cameras!!!), a 80/1.9, 150/2.8 & 150/4.

    My 'travel' kit comprises 55, 80/2.8 & 150/4 as they all use the same filter, and fit my bag (the 45 fits too but I don't carry that on holidays).

    I generally only use the big guns (80/1.9 & 150/2.8) at home and in fact used them yesterday taking portraits of my sons.

    I have the C model and I'm happy with it. I didn't try any other versions. Some of my favorite photos come from that lens. Can't go wrong with any medium format OEM Bronica, Mamiya, Pentax, Contax, etc lens.
