The Mamiya 43mm is almost a perfect lens, if you have a straight line going across your image, that line is perfectly straight all the way through, the 35mm equivalent is roughly 21mm. It's an amazing lens, the most sharp 120 lens ever made, there are posts out there I've read on how to LESSEN the sharpness because it's so sharp. It's beautiful, and I love mine, many of my grand canyon shots are used with it, and that one of the cross on the hill (it's only square for reasons of some headlight fog I got from a passing car on a 10 minute exposure).

EDIT: I love all 3 lenses I have, the 43mm, 65mm, and 150mm, but if you want an "all purpose" lens, go with the 65mm, I tend to use that one a lot.
