    I had a pair of Super 66's and a handful of lenses that I shot portraits and weddings with into the mid 80's. One of my biggest regrets was parting with them, enjoy yours.

    Thank you people. The 85 came back the other day. It and the 150 will be getting a workout later in the week I hope.

    The 85mm is a gem wide open as well as stopped down. Here is a sample from the super 66 that I had.
    I was very happy with the quality. The finder is quite amazing.

    i sold it because I had a hard time loading it and I like the side focussing of the Bronica S and Mamiya RB67 better.
    However I miss the square format. I will be going back to the Kowa or a 'blad soon.

    Im unsure about the 85mm. Im not sure it focuses to infinity. Ive not yet tempted fate and taken landscape pictures focused at infinity with a large aperture (f2.8 or f4) with low DoF, but I do seem to notice the lens markings are not correct. Compared to the 150mm and other camera/lens combinations it reaches infinity much earlier. The markings are also off at close distances, e.g. 4ft when other lenses say 3ft. Ive measured these cases and found the distance to be 3ft. Stopped down at infinity it would seem to be quite OK. Anybody had similar experiences with their 85mm?

    85mm, f16, focused at infinity:

    Nice.

    Yes, for someone unaccustomed to MF the finders on these SLRs are fantastic. I would suspect the Kowa is not a bad representative for the species.

    Ah well, Ill keep the 85mm as it is. Ive not got the focus wrong on it yet, at anything f5.6 and above. Its pretty sharp, though Ive heard its not the best Kowa MF lens, its good enough for me. A few examples (click the bar to enlarge, youll need it):
