Mamiya lens fit

  1. Will Mamiya RZ lenses fit an RB body?
  2. No, they won't. RB lenses can be mounted on the RZ bodies, but not vice versa.
  3. The RZ lenses are electronic (shutter timing). The RB have mechanical shutter controls on the lens. The RZ's do not.
  4. Tnx guys. I'll just do some more digging . I'm hoping to find the 500mm lens for my RB
  5. The 500mm, f:8 lenses are out there for the RB, just make sure you get the support bracket with the lens. There is a suitcase style case for the 500mm, it would be nice to get that, too. The bracket alone can cost almost $200.00 USD.
    Someone with extensive RB experience needs to chime in on whether or not the 500mm can be mounted on the original RB body. It's possible the 500mm may only mount on the Pro SD, and later versions the Pro S model of RB's, (IIRC).
  6. I do have the Pro s model RB. I'll probably get the 250mm & 350mm lenses first before I go after the 500. Down the road though, It will be mine.
