View Full Version : RF645 discontinued?
I just saw a news item to this effect at another site - http://www.ephotozine.com/news/fullnews.cfm?NewsID=2295
If true, then how sad to see another much loved name disappearing.
Tamron has shut down its whole medium format division.
this is depressing news now that I have one (645RF).
btw: I have a +.2 and -.5 diopter for this camera that I am trying to sell if anyone is interested.
(or trade with a "0")
How do I know which diopter I would need? I wear reading glasses. I take them off to look through the viewfinder and put them on to adjust the camera settings. Would a diopter allow me to leave my glasses on while looking through the VF?
I went to my optomitrist to find out. that should give you an idea where to start, but it's best to try them first to find the right one. Some of my cameras have it built in and you can just dial in the best setting. If you have a camera that does this AND lets you know the level of adjustment, you can decide from there. If not, try them at your local camera store to narrow it down. If you carefully lift the rubber eye piece up at the bottom and slide it up, you will be able to remove your diopter to see what is installed. Probably -0.1 (standard). I bought mine used and had a hell of a time focusing. That was because I had a -0.5 installed. I removed it and can see just great now. The +0.2 doesn't work either. So I don't have any in it now, but even w/o my glasses I can focus better than before.
