Does anyone had the opportunity to compare the 'old' mamiya 55mm AF 2,8 against the newer Schneider 55mm LS ? (center and corner sharpness, contrast, clarity)
I like that focal and wants to use it with my IQ 180. With such back there should be no compromise to make with lenses. On the one hand I will use that lens for casual shots / street shots. Nice clean super sharp shots will be made with my Cambo set.
And on the other hand, I know that I will waste my money if the 55mm Mamiya central and corner sharpness really aren't on par with the Schneider LS lenses.
On paper only leaf shutter, ergonomics and probably the AF are different (same lens construction/groups, closest focus distance etc).
Considering those points and the 1 to 5 price factor in favor of the Mam, do you think it makes sense to use that 55mm Mam with an IQ 180 ??
