[SOLD] 80-160mm Pentax-FA for Pentax 645N etc

Pentax-FA 80-160mm lens with caps, lens shade, lens case, box.

The glass is perfect, focusing and zooming silky smooth.

Very small scratch on the black finish, otherwise near mint.

$450 takes it plus $15 shipping in the CON US from Oklahoma - I accept Paypal and will pay the fees.

Thanks!

Price reduced to $399!

Steal it for $349!

"Pentax has two medium format camera lines, the Pentax 67 and the Pentax 645. Unique among camera makers, Pentax has designed the systems so that the lenses from the 6X7 camera can also be used on the 645 body. They manufacture an adaptor for this that retains autodiaphram and open-aperture metering capability. Put it on a 645 body and you can use all your 67 lenses pretty much as normall" Luminous Landscape

But can a 645 lens be monted on a 67? Or is it the same adapter?
If yes then...I may very well be intersted.
Thanks

I think use a 645 lens on a 67 is more or less like to use a DA lens on 135 film body, some might work, but most probably will cause dark image circles ...

Frank is right, the lens won't cover the 6x7 format, even supposing there is an adapter 645 to 67, which I doubt.

Also, I'm fairly certain the register distances are different.
