    I have 180 and it is a great one, i never feel i want another lens, if i have to then i will go with 210, i mean longer than 180, but i can't force you with my choice, am very happy and satisfied with 180.

    Note: my next lens for RZ when i will have budget will be 110 no doubt, i hope.

    My #1 favorite lens is the 140 Macro lens

    This is my 2nd favorite lens, but it tends to be a little long.
    I use this lens for tight head shots.

    My #1 favorite lens is the 140 Macro lens, great for 3/4 shots.

    My 3rd favorite lens is the 90 mm lens, for full lengths.

    Add a 1.4 Extender for the 210 APO, they work great together.

    I really dig the 250. I've done some nice portraits outside with it and you get a lot of compression. You can easily shoot at small apertures and still get a nice bokeh.

ID:	54215 renders fine details very well without being too harsh fro the face.


    These are three 3 awesome lenses.

ID:	54216is a must have classic soft focus for the RB. While it can be mated with the RZ, I read somewhere that C lenses shutter trip mechanism is too stiff for the RZ body to safely accomodate.


    BTW, I have the 210 APO preliminary found it *may* be too sharp/contrasty for adult skin. I think its a landscape lens?

    Inspect all purchased lenses carefully. There are alot of new old stock Mamiya lenses stored in boxes which is not ideal for fungus prevention. I have rejection rate of about 15% on these new old stock lenses.

    On a positive note, the Mamiya RZ offer awesome optics despite their large, clunky appearance.

    I may post photos i've taken by 180 on my RZ, but my next RZ lens will be definitely 110mm, not just because or for portraits only, but to be a general lens as well.

    110 wide open. I've gotten some dreamy interior shots.

    There is a real nice 180mm soft focus lens for the RZ on ebay right now for $199.99 with free shipping and no bids yet. You can shoot it as sharp as a regular 180 or as soft as you want!
