    Mamiya 75-150 F4.5 Zoom Lens

    I have asked this question on a couple of sites including the Mamiya site without any luck. Has anyone used this lense? How is it for sharpness? How does it handle, i.e. weight and size? I see this lense come up for sale once in a while. The range intrigues me as being very useful for my type of shooting. I have not been able to find any reviews or information about it. I am considering this lense for my PRO tl. Any help would be appreciated.

    I saw your question on other sites, but although the M645 is my primary camera system, I've never used anything but primes with it...

    Are you sure that this is for the 645 series? I have heard good things of the 55-110 and 105-210 but as far as I know these are the only zooms made for the 645 series

    Simon, yes it is for a 645. It is obviously an older C lense, and I guess it was only made for a short period judging by the lack of information. KEH has a few for sale and are asking higher prices than the 55-110 lense. You can see my delima as even Mamiya shooters are not familiar with this lense. http://www.keh.com/OnLineStore/ProductList.aspx

    I found a picture of one for sale on ebay and it looks huge. Takes 77mm filters and looks a much bigger lens than my 210mm prime. I would worry about balance on a tripod for a lens this big without it's own tripod mount. Quality wise I would be a bit cautious of any ancient zoom from any manufacturer.
