    Mamiya Sekor 105/f3.5 D/DS (Heliar) TLR

    Is this lens magical? I've heard many great things about the Heliar bokeh on the Bessa RF/II and also on the Kodak Medalist. The Mamiya Sekor 105/f3.5 D/DS lensis supposed to be a Heliar design but I don't hear much about it.

    1) Is the bokeh distinctive? in comparison to the 80mm f/2.8
    2) Does this lens render the image similarly to other Heliar designs?

    Is this lens for the RB/RZ or the 645?

    Sorry, I just edited the Header but I'm talking about the TLR.

    Ok, thanks...
    I have this lens. I will get back to you once I get home. It has delicious cream instead of bokeh.

    The bokeh is creamy but with a nougat center and a tart aftertaste.

    I'm quite impressed with this lens. It has a nice way of collecting light.
    I'm not sure if this earlier version is actually a heliar-type lens though.

    I have the 105 D. It's a good lens, but a fairly recent purchase, without a huge number of photos yet.

    As I take it from the above example, it could be a bit more picky about the stray-light, though...
