MAMIYA SEKOR 5.6/85 for LF ? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

MAMIYA SEKOR 5.6/85 mounted on a copal press, anybody know this lens ? image circle, sharpness...? i've seen one to sell at a very low cost, is it a good lens for 6x7 with some movements, or even without ? thanks

Go back and check your numbers. I've never heard of a 5.6/ 85mm. If it's the 5.6 75mm it is one of the sharpest optics you'll ever find anywhere and will cover 3X4 with small movements. They were made to cover Polaroid pack film format albeit on a camera that didn't have to worry about movements. Terrific 6X9 lense.
