The result is the possibility of ideal lens designs, which Mamiya's computer-aided optical R&D department crafts with the utmost pride and unsurpassed precision of any medium format system. The extreme accuracy of rangefinder focusing and lack of shutter or mirror vibration also contributes to razor sharp results not obtainable with SLR lenses.
The Mamiya 65mm f/4.0 is a true wide angle design with distortion-free performance that produces results virtually indistinguishable from standard focal length lenses, yet allows the unique perspective and spatial relationships possible with a wide angle view.
Applications include reportage, landscape, group portraits and general purpose wide angle photography. Equivalent to 32mm in 35mm format.
