    Lens suggestions

    So my Mamiya 645 DF 28DM 80mm LS kit is supposed to be here tomorrow 12/06 I've been looking at different lens's and need some advise as to something that is going to be good quality without breaking the bank.

    I mainly shoot Glamour & Nudes along with some landscape.

    Landscape isn't on top of my list right now but something wide angle would be great.

    I have been pretty pleased with a three lens kit consisting of the 55LS, 80LS, and 110LS
    The 110 is by far the most often used lens for figure work. The 80 and 55 do most of the landscape heavy lifting. Recently I have ben using a tech camera and a rodie 40mmHR-W for wide.

    Thanks for the suggestions Bob but those are out of my budget for right now.

    I have been looking at some of the older model zooms and a couple of the primes for now.

    Primes are good, and the newer D series generally better.

    Bit pricey, but the most flexible lens, is probably the new 75-150 D. Great flexibility for landscapes, good for portraiture as well. Wide angle is the weak point for the DF.
