    Same applies to the P645N. The autofocus 75mm lens which is the standard lens is still reasonably priced despite the arrival of the P654D but almost every other FA lens and most A lenses have soared in price.

    Pity

    Sorry, no RZ on RB

    I've got an RB body. Sure would be nice to get it spiffy and working.
    Sorry, you can't use an RZ lens on an RB body. The RZ lenses require electronics, and the shutter speed control is on a knob on the RZ body.
    You can use RB lenses on an RZ body though. Mamiya recommends an adapter of some kind, but I've mounted them straight on with no adapter. I think the adapter "ensures a tighter fit" or something like that, but I've never had any problems.

    From what I know, RZ lenses won't work on RB bodies because the shutter is electronic in these lenses. RB lenses will work on RZ bodies. I have a 65mm RB lens and it works fine. RZ bodies are pretty cheap. I got a used RZ body in good shape with a WL finder for about $260. Maybe you can snag on on Ebay for cheap.

    Tempting, maybe i should buy this 90mm, but i am confusing if 90mm or 110 is a better choice for me to use on my RZ.

    The 110 is better than the 90 in every measurable way.

    Newer design, faster, sharper, smaller, lighter, gorgeous OOF.

    Of course, none of this matters if you prefer the 90's angle of view.
