    SOLD: Mamiya/Phase AF APO 300mm f/4.5 IF LNIB!

    Up for sale is a Mamiya 645AF AF APO 300mm f/4.5 IF lens for Mamiya/Phase 645AF/DF. Lens is in like-new condition, glass clean and clear on both front and rear elements. In the box. Asking US$1,500 and includes shipping CONUS.

    I like this lens, but I simply don't use this lens in my work. It literally probably has not been used more than a handful of times.
    PM me here.

    Yup! This does fall into our rule: "You touch it, you buy it!" Although to be fair, this Mamiya 300mm really is a great lens.

    Don, you're in trouble when my IQ180 comes in....

    First - I'll be wearing gloves

    Second - I don't want to hear "I wish I hadn't sold that 300" sob sob sob

    This is one of the first lens I'd buy if I ever give up shooting a tech camera,

    we should start a separate category in FS or WTB known only as:

    'Funding the 180...'

    says it all really.

    Yup---and it'd still fit aptly under the credo, "Buy Now Explain Later!"

    Check with Jack or Guy. In Jack's secured facility, they probably have a DF body or two or three or four.....

    It's amazing how many helpful suggestions I've received re acquiring a 645 or DF body.....what a great group this is!

    I keep hoping someone will buy this lens, thereby eliminating the temptation. As we all know, first it's one lens and a body, then another lens, then a Phase One MFDB.....before you know it, we're talking serious $$$! Oh yeah, I've been down this road before.....

    Gary,

    As many others on this site will attest, a truly great way in is the ZD back with AFD/AFDII/AFDIII or P1 AF or DF bodies...

    I remember a couple of years ago pulling out the mamiya/phase kit one evening at Bryce canyon.. people came over to have a feel and a play.... When and if Ken, Don, Jack and Guy turn up with 180's... there will be a queue all the way to Zion I suspect..
