Mamiya announced the first in a new series of high-resolution medium format lenses designed for use in the digital world... the Mamiya Sekor AF 75-150mm f/4.5 D Lens This is the first entry in the Sekor D Lens series, and has been designed specifically to direct light onto the digital sensor at an angle that is ideal for digital photography. The resolving power of the lens also corresponds perfectly with a high megapixel sensor. “Mamiya Sekor lenses have been admired by both medium format and 35mm film camera users for their superior quality,” says Jeff Karp, Mamiya Product Marketing Manager, “and now this legacy will continue as Mamiya meets and exceeds current optical standards for modern photographic lenses.” Features The Mamiya Sekor Zoom AF 75-150mm f/4.5 D Lens is a medium telephoto zoom lens, with an angle of view of 50 to 26 degrees. The equivalent focal length for a 35mm format is 47~ 93mm. Its minimum focusing distance is just 3.3 feet, 1.7 feet closer than existing Mamiya AF zoom lenses. This allows for use in a diverse range of photographic scenes, from portraits to landscapes to candids. This versatility makes it indispensable in portrait studios since it lets you “crop” in the camera without changing camera position. Autofocus and manual focus functions are easily selected with one-touch action. Simply move the focusing ring backwards or forwards. The lens comes with a floral-shaped lens hood that provides a shield against flare over the entire zooming range.
