Mamiya Macro MF 120mm F4 Lens

Mamiya Upgrades the Mamiya Macro MF 120mm F4 Lens

Elmsford NY, January 10, 2008 - Mamiya has introduced the new Mamiya Sekor Macro MF 120mm f/4 D Lens - successor to the popular Mamiya Macro MF 120mm f/4 Lens.

"The Mamiya 120mm f/4 macro lens is one of the sharpest lenses available today," said Jeff Karp, Mamiya Product Marketing Manager, "and it has already been critically corrected for digital imaging. But it needed an upgrade to be fully compatible with the latest cameras, software and digital backs."

The primary upgrade of the new lens is related to digital communication with the camera. Data transfer is now controlled by a 16-bit CPU instead of the previous 4-bit CPU.

The advantages of the new CPU are:

Rewritability: The new 16-bit CPU is rewritable and can be overwritten with firmware upgrades that would be required for compatibility with future cameras and digital backs.

Finer Lens Correction: Thanks to the bigger capacity of the CPU, the new lens has more lens data. It is possible to apply finer lens-characteristic corrections when using Mamiya's Digital Photostudio® software.

Fast, Reliable Communication: The new CPU enables faster and more reliable communication with the camera body.

As its name suggests, the new D-series lens shows its true capabilities when shooting with the Mamiya ZD Digital back and other high-end digital backs. However, it is designed to be equally at home with film backs.

The new Mamiya Sekor Macro MF 120mm f/4 D Lens is compatible with the Mamiya 645AFD ll camera and is available for immediate delivery.

Mamiya 45mm and 80mm For Film and Digital Backs

Cologne, Germany - September 17, 2008 - Mamiya announced the introduction of the Mamiya Sekor 45mm f2.8 D -- the latest lens in the growing series of Mamiya Digital lenses. This wide-angle lens utilizes low-dispersion glass to correct chromatic aberration, producing high resolution and a large image circle coverage for film and digital backs. The use of floating lens elements ensures edge-to-edge sharpness at all focusing distances.

Since wide-angle lenses can cause color shift problems with digital backs (due to the extreme angle at which light rays hit the sensor), the Mamiya 45mm f/2.8 D has been designed to direct light rays so that they are parallel when they hit the sensor - producing maximum sharpness, color accuracy and contrast.

The Mamiya Sekor AF 45mm F2.8 D lens has been designed with a 16bit CPU that allows easy firmware upgrading, fine lens characteristic correction and fast, reliable communication between the lens, camera body and digital back when used in conjunction with the Mamiya 645AFDIII and 645AFDII.

The lens has an angle of view of 76 degrees - equivalent to a 28mm lens in the 35mm format. The Mamiya Sekor AF 45mm F2.8 D is especially suited for architectural photography and other subjects dominated by straight lines. It also features a one touch switching ring for easy changing between manual and auto focus.

Pricing and delivery to be announced later this year.
