    Mamiya 645 AFDlll and leaf shutter?

    I am in the process of converting my P45+ from V-mount to Mamiya 645 to use with a 645 AFDlll.
    Was planing to keep my RZ67llD to be able to use my leaf shutter lenses in the studio to be able to play more flexible with the light. And to be able to use the bellow for easy macro photo.
    But I read some where that it is possible to use the new leaf shutter lenses with the 645 AFDlll camera if it has the last firmware.

    Maybe some one here can confirm or negate this?

    Regards
    Ray

    I believe only the Mamiya DF or the Phase 645DF are the only current bodies able to use the new Schneider leaf shutter lenses. The latest DF body is a worthwhile upgrade over the previous AFDIII/Phase 645AF body.

    Thank`s for the answer Ken.
    Positive thinking is nice, but does not always deliver what I hope for

    Um, how about "you can still use a filmback with the AFDIII/PhaseAF?"
    Or, "that V-grip for the DF really isn't as nice as we all had hoped it would be?"

    Just keeping positive...

    Yes, your first positive sentence is why I stay for now with the 645 AFDlll.
    I don't want to lose the possibility to also shoot film with my camera.
    Not better, but different
