    645 Bronica

    I have an ETRSi and want to upgrade the system w/either a 50mm f/2.8 or 60mm f/2.8 PE lense.Can anyone tell me how well either of these lenses control light fall off-vignetting-in the corners and at what aperture vignetting is no longer an issue.Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I don't think you will have any problems with vignetting with either lens. A friend has the Etrsi and never had any problems.

    I've got the 40mm and the 60mm PE lenses and theyre both fantastic - vignetting is certainly not a problem if your using the proper lens hoods.

    I use the 50mm extensively and never had any problems with vignetting, not even when full opened. Bronica lenses are top of the line and not utterly expensive secondhand.
    Sure, I could give you a boring explanation who I really am but I rather let the Origami do the talking.

    Vignetting I've not found to be a problem. I do not consider
    my 60 or 75 to be f2.8 but a good 1/2 stop slower. So my
    wide open, f4. I think that normal. Indicated lens speeds
    and actual are often not the same. Dan
