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 80mm f/4.0 is a standard lens using a symmetrical design for exceptional performance. For the fast and spontaneous shooting style associated with rangefinder camera designs, the 80mm focal length is a logical choice as a wide-normal lens.
Applications include general purpose, fashion, portraiture and landscape photography. Equivalent to 39mm in 35mm format.
