Mamiya M645 system

Mamiya 645 series features fast and convenient 35mm handling, with a medium format negative size 2.7 times larger than 35mm. These cameras can take on virtually any assignment from fashion and beauty to travel and nature, from sports and photojournalism to architecture and advertising illustration, with superior results and convenient operation.

The arsenal of Mamiya 645 series high performance lenses rivals the assortment of the most impressive 35mm SLR lines and can be divided into four series:

  • The C series - manual focus lenses designed for Mamiya M645, M645 1000S, M645J, M645 Super, 645 PRO, 645 PRO TL, 645E cameras. These lenses were available in two types: designs for focal plane shutter systems, and a selection of N/L series leaf shutter lenses providing full flash synch capability up to 1/500 sec. Special application lenses for PC shift, flat field macro, versatile zooms, and a set of high speed APO lenses were also available;
  • The Mamiya 645 AF series - autofocus lenses designed for the Mamiya 645AF camera;
  • The Mamiya SEKOR D AF series - autofocus lenses designed for Mamiya 645AFD, 645AFD II, 645AFD III cameras that supported digital backs. Like the C series, these are also available in two types: designs for focal plane shutter systems, and a selection of leaf shutter (LS) lenses providing full flash synch capability up to 1/800 or 1/1600 sec. (depending on digital back in use)
  • The Schneider-KREUZNACH AF LS series - the latest leaf shutter autofocus lenses designed for Mamiya 645DF, 645DF+ and Phase One XF cameras.

Mamiya 645 AF-mount cameras are backward compatible with the older C series lenses but the exposure metering can only be performed in the stop-down mode. At the same time, the AF lenses cannot be used on Mamiya M645, 645 PRO, 645E series manual focus cameras.
