    Buy the less expensive one. As a long time user with the 105 I can attest to its excellence. But, if the 90mm were available and affordable I'd have chosen it instead.

    The 80 is standard on 6x6 so I would guess that the 90 is standard on 6x7.

    If they are the same f stop, It probably doesn't matter which one you buy. I doubt that you'd see too much difference coverage wise.

    As far as what is 'considered' standard, based on film size, it would be the 90mm, the 105 was an option that was chose on several of these cameras when purchased new, the difference is very close to what Minolta offered several years ago, when they were including a 45mm as standard and the rest of the industry was doing 50mm, as far as quality and field of view, the noticable difference in real world shooting is really not going to be that noticable, the 90 and the 105 are both very good quality shooters and you should be happy with either of them, as was said, use it to your advantage and buy the least expensive of them.

    On my 6x7, I have the 105. That's what it came with. I'd say that's the standard as it equates to about a 52mm on a 35mm camera.

    I purchased the 200mm lens (for my 6x7) about two years ago since I do more 'in your face' shots and use it more as my primary lens of the two.

    Hi Dorothy,

    Actually the 6x7 Pentax was available as a new purchase with either one of the lenses, so it is difficult to say which one is normal based on how they were equipped from the factory.

    Original purchasers that bought an "outfit" or "kit" that included a lens and perhaps the metering prism got a 105mm. That was the standard lens from pentax and it's excellent. Great cameras BTW. I just finally sold my outfit. I had a 45mm 90mm 165mm and 300mm. Great range. But all I was using it for was photographing the grandbabies and ultimately it was replaced with a $65 Minolta Autocord that works as well or better for that task and is like a feather around my neck.

    Oh, and get a wide-angle instead.
