    Exclamation SOLD: Mamiya 150/2.8 AF D lens

    I love this lens. It is probably the best lens I've ever owned for any camera ever, period -- yes it really is that good. But I hardly ever use it, so it mostly just sits in my camera cabinet... Anyway, it is in like-new condition, complete with box and all the original 'stuff.'

    Asking $1995 shipped US and Paypald, and hoping it finds a good home soon.

    PM me if interested.

    You're gonna hate yourself later, Jack, for kicking this one out of your bed....

    The 150mm f/2.8 D is the best lens in the Mamiya/Phase lineup. Not frequently mentioned is this is the fastest focusing lens too. Fast on the Phase 645AF; faster yet on the Phase 645DF. Rare to find on the used market for good reason, and at a discounted price as well. Should go quick...

    Hope she stays in the GetDPI family (so with seller's remorse, you might get visitation rights!)

    It is a phenomenal lens, and why I have kept it. But the reality is I don't shoot subjects where I need the fast aperture performance (like portraits) very often and end up using my 75-150 zoom at smaller apertures most of the time instead.

    And as fairly as I think I have priced it, nobody is breaking down my door to get it, so it is just as likely to remain in my camera cabinet for another year before I try selling it again

    I'll tag this thread, so that if/when I actually get the money to go MF I'll actually be able to find this again.

    Hey Jack, you probably don't remember but a few years back you bought a beat-up B1 from me :-)

    Hi Bill, and welcome to GetDPI! I probably wouldn't have remembered you specifically, but I certainly remember the beat-up B1!!! It worked great and I used it for several more years before finally selling it just a short while back.

    Because the GetDPI family is protecting you from selling it...
