Product Description

With an angle of view of 64 degrees, this lens is equivalent to a 34mm lens in 35mm format. With minimal perspective change, it produces the most natural image of all the wide-angle lenses. A floating mechanism improves resolution at the periphery in close-ups, for image sharpness all the way out to infinity. This lens is suitable for a wide range of situations, from general photography to scenics. It is designed to provide the feel of a standard lens with a slight wide-angle effect.

Great Lens. Performs like a normal lens...very little distortion. Excellent macro capapbility...the most of any of the Mamiya AF lenses except the 120 macro. It's wonderful for weddings and portraits. Small, light, looks and feels good.
