March 2010 More Mamiya Reviews
It has six elements in four groups.
It is 1.7" (43mm) long by 2.5" (64mm) around and weighs 8.8 oz. (250g).
It focusses to three feet or 1m.
It has a 58mm filter thread.
The special lens hood (not shown) is included, so don't buy a used lens without the hood.
It's almost flawless. It's sharp at every aperture and has no visible light falloff, even at f/3.5.
It handles four to five (!) 58mm screw in filters without vignetting.
It also handles five (!) 67mm screw-in filters when used with a 58m -> 67mm step-up ring.
There is no distortion at any distance.
This is a really, really good lens. If you are used to slumming with Leica, Canon and Nikon you will be astounded.
Just buy one. See the Photodo.com test here.
