Mamiya Press 75mm Lens - Any Good?

I have a flat top Mamiya Press Standard and have been Considering the 75mm lens. I believe this was designed for the 600SE.

Will it fit my camera?
Is it any good?
Does it cover 6x9 without vignetting?



Cheers
Peter

It is a fine lens. They all are, the only one that is not just superb is the 65mm, it was never updated to black and that series of better coatings. Now if it will fit on your Press Standard, depends on the mount. I am told the 600SE mount is slightly different from the Mamiya press mount.

It should cover 6x9 because it was designed to cover polaroid on the Mamyia Universal.

The 75mm Mamiya lens for the Polaroid 600SE will not fit on the Mamiya Press, the mounts are different. I assume the 75mm lens for the Mamiya Press is in fact the same lens as the 600SE lens. I have the 600SE lens and I think it's quite good considering it's age.

Have you used one (65mm f/6.3)? I find mine is excellent. And with the rangefinder it is easy easy to focus.

This is the first shot I took with mine; wide open:
