    Mamiya 7 users lens shade question

    Re--Mamiya 7II RF ---Being I'm going on vac in a few days and just receiving a 65mm f4 to complement my 80 as the 65 is such a sought after lens and the moderately wider persp.I wanted --the lens looks unused BUT is missing the lens shade (the seller told me so no surprise) and being I have the 80 mm shade and it does fit the 65's bayonet--my question is can I use the 80 mm shade on the 65 mm OR will it vignette or just go to my local camera store and pick up a generic 58 mm thread w/a shade and avoid the risk---Just curious as to whether anyone has actually tried the 80 mm shade on the 65 mm lens ? BTW--B&H is out of stock and thats why I haven't ordered it in anticipation of the lens arrival.

    Even if you get no vignetting with a generic shade, you might have an obstructed view through the finder. That may or may not bother you.

    I would expect that there may be some vignetting. I have the 65mm lens, but not the 80mm lens. The hood is listed at Adorama, and not listed as out of stock. You may wish to call them to confirm. Adorama's price is $34.95 and here is the link:

    KEH usually has a good supply of these hoods.

    Get the correct hood. I own both these lenses. You want the correct hood.

    I hate the lens shades that came with my camera. Masybe I'm putting them on wrong. This was my solution to the problem, and it works very well.

    The flare-buster may be a great idea but it won't work with a rangefinder.

    Well,seems it does, since I use it. I actually attach it to the tripod when I do most my shooting. It also has an attachment that goes into the hot shoe. So I guess that is another way to do it.

    I have used many shades like that on various cameras. In a studio environment this kind of shade is often referred to as a "French Fly".

    Not too sure about the history of the name, but I think it's from the motion picture industry.

    I use a very similar home made shade like that. It is attached to the tripod and is nothing more than cardboard and a modified wire coat hanger.

    Primitive, but effective!

    Yes, I know them as 'French flags'.

    Best,
