    hi Tim, keep you eye out for a 55mm for her (assuming she uses what you've already bought her)... for the right price it's IMO a great addition and the 58mm filter thread matches the 80 & 150. I have both the 80/1.9 and 150/2.8's but leave them at home and take 55/2.8 80/2.8 & 150/4 (along with the 45/2.8). I like the 45 but none of my filters fit it which is a tad annoying at times!

    Also, get a spare battery so you have one handy before you need it... you won't buy one at a corner store!

    Different filter sizes can be a PITB but these just happen to be 77mm, same as the standard rb67 lens. I only carry two filters at any one time anyway, the red and the yellow for black and white work. Could possibly get away with just the yellow.

    Nice thing about the M645 is not having to carry a meter. Thanks for the advice on the battery.

    I'm fortunate to own every lens from 35 to 300 in the 645 mamiya lineup. The one I use the least is probably the 80 mm. If I had to pair it down to just one lens I'd go with the 55mm. If you can allow for 2 lenses then maybe the 55mm.2.8 and the 150mm. 3.5 would be a great value.Why? Because they are extremely inexpensive but they compare favourably to any other glass made. I hope that helps.

    Any 80mm that give a natural effect.

    I have the 35mm, 55mm, 80mm f/1.9, 110mm, and 145mm SF. The 35mm, 55mm, and the 110mm make a great set. The next lens on my list to get is the 210mm.

    I've been thinking about the 300mm f/2.8 APO. How do you like it? Is it worth the $$?

    I have a 300mm f/4 Pentacon that I use and it is quite good but more speed and auto diapham are attractive. KEH has a nice one for $1450, a BGN one for $1250.

    Thanks!

    Curious about your experience with the 35mm?

    I have the 80mm lens, and am thinking about the 35mm as my next, mostly for landscape.

    Thanks

    Steve,

    The 35mm is why I bought (another) M645. I'm a Hasselblad user and I could not justify the $$$ for a 40mm 'Blad lens or the SW/M with the 38mm. So I bought the 35mm and a 1000s body. It's my 3rd Mamiay 645. I really like the 35mm lens!!! Not very heavy and is tack sharp. I bought it for travel shots.

    With the 80 a lot of folks get the 45mm.

    You might find the 35 too wide - think a 21mm on a 35mm camera. But with the 55mm it's a great set up.
