    To Bronica RF 645 users on the 135mm lens

    I just purchased a used Bronica RF645 with both the 45 and 65 lenses and love it! I have recently come across a good deal on the 135mm lens. I know that Bronica had problems with the 135 lens due to focussing, so they discontinued it and instread introduced a 100mm lens. I'm not interested in a 100mm lens. But, is there any way I can purcahase the 135 lens and send my camera somewhere to have it calibrated with the new lens for perfect focussing. I've heard in other forums that this is possible. Has anyone else done this with the 135 lens and where can this be done? Thanks alot!

    If you don't get a response here, you might try rangefinderforum.com or the Bronica group on Yahoo!groups, which both might have a higher concentration of RF645 users.

    If you genuinely can get a good deal, just buy it and re-sell it

    I would like to buy it for myself and use it if at all possible. I want to make this work with my camera. I'm sure there's a way. I just need some help and assistance.

    Brian I have the RF645 with a 135mm lens. Intro 2020 (http://www.intro2020.co.uk/pages/main.htm) were the UK distributers for the Bronica RF equipment and they 'matched' the 135mm to the body for me. This was 2 years ago. Excellent job.
