View Full Version : MF lens, 135 focal length equivalents?
Could someone post the 135 focal length equivalents to the lenses available for the Mamiya 7?
I hope that makes sense(?).
Divide by 2, more or less.
Or check here: http://www.mamiya.com/
43mm = 21
50mm = 25
65mm = 32
80mm = 39
150mm = 71
210mm = 100
according to manual
You'll have to use an SLR or TLR for that. The lens would be roughly 250mm.
If you've used longer lenses on MF you can probably see why the problem exists- its all about DOF. There isn't any to speak of with such a long lens, and rangefinders exacerbate the problem with their limited ability to focus.
Note that the 210mm lens for the Mamiya 7 series is not rangefinder coupled, and has a close focus distance of nearly a mile. Mamiya recommends the lens only for distant landscape shots. So the longest lens usable for portraiture in the series is 150mm.
