    I'm not sure what the designations mean. However, the "best" depends on your intended use of course. For me, sharpest is always the cirterion. The sharpest I ever tried is the 110mm for the RZ. I used it 95% of the time. For interiors and some landscapes, the 50mm ULD (not the Z version) was very good as well. I never owned any of the APO lenses so can't comment about them. It's a fine system camera.

    thisn is from memory so bare with me

    w=wide aperture cllck stops (easier to get ½stops on aperture ring)
    MLA= designates a close focusing floating element design

    N= i beleive means the newest iteration of that particular lens design

    They are all good, even the non-ULD, non-M/L-A versions. Really, no bad lenses in the system, in general.

    Steve,
    The 110mm f/2.8 is a great lens but will give you roughly a normal angle of view on 6x7 so if you want a moderately wide look for the 50mm or 65 mm

    Many years ago I owned an RB67 Pro-S with 37 fish, 50, 65, 90, 127, 140 macro, 180 and 250... nearly a full kit. These were all the single coated versions and most were superb performers. My 250 wasn't quite as sharp or high-contrast as I'd hoped but wasn't really bad. Maybe the 250 was a lemon. I've never used any other RB lenses. I often miss that big ol' machine. I never used that particular camera for landscapes but had I done so I would have carried the 50, 65, 90, 127 and 180... quite a heavy kit to haul. As I understand it, Mamiya RB/RZ lenses only got better over the years.

    Sorry Bruce - the RZ stuff isn't my strength.

    Got any RB or 645 questions?
