This is an excellent/excellent + condition Mamiya 645 80mm f4.0 N Macro lens, including both caps and the original box.
This lens in is perfect mechanical and optical condition and of course works perfectly – except that the iris is very slightly slow to reopen after exposure. Unless you were looking for this fault you would never notice it. Otherwise, no problems at all, with turning to closest focus very smooth an easy. This lens has super clean glass with no problems. Cosmetically it is in great condition with the usual slight paint wear on the mount/lens rear ring. There is also a scuff on the filter ring (see photo 4), but this is only cosmetic and does not affect anything. That is about it – a very nice lens.
