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.
    Yes, the 45mm would a lot cheaper, also. Good idea. I will try the 45mm.
    thanks.
    Steve.

    For flexibility and fun with MF, start with an 80/2.8--sharp, cheap, and plentiful.

    I concur. The 80 2.8 is a great performer at a cheap price. It was my first lens for this camera. I also have the 150/4.0--great for portraits, scenics, whenever you want a longer than normal view. My current favorite is the 45/2.8. A heavy piece of glass but gives a fresh new perspective. You can't go wrong with any of the above.

    I use the 45/2.8 N and the camera came with the C version. The N version of the 45 has superior coatings and flare control, having compared both.

    My advice is to use lens hoods as well.
