Mamiya has announced the release of two Mamiya Lens Mount Adapters that allows the use of Hasselblad V-series medium format lenses on Mamiya 645AF series cameras (645AF, 645AFD, and 645AFD II).

"The adapters provide the mechanical interface and precise flange-to-film plane distance required for proper focusing of Hasselblad lenses," said Jeff Karp, Mamiya Product Marketing Manager, "allowing the photographer to use their existing Hasselblad V series lenses on the high-precision Mamiya 645AFD II. We are confident that photographers are looking to make the transition from film to digital as efficiently as possible, and this adapter is definitely a way to do that." To use the lenses, simply focus with the lens wide open (the camera provides focus confirmation assistance), then stop-down for proper exposure meter readings. The 645AF/AFD/AFD II can use shutter priority, aperture priority or manual metering modes. The adapters come in black (#404) or silver (#405) and will be available in January 2008.
