If you get the adapter I recommend looking for the brass and steel one - Adorama seems to have it (but on backorder) 04P645HB Adorama Brass Hasselblad Lens to Pentax 645 Body Mount Adapter - this is the same one they sell in Japan. I believe the fotodiox are aluminum which I doubt is as sturdy.
This adapter from Adorama looks IDENTICAL to the Fotodiox adapter I purchased from Amazon.

Amazon.com: Fotodiox Pro Adapter, Hasselblad Lens to Pentax 645 Adapter -- fits Pentax 645N, Pentax 645, Pentax 645D, D645: Camera & Photo

Gary,

Thanks - is it all aluminum or brass ? How do you find yours in terms of fit and infinity focus ?

Brett,

I can't tell if it is aluminum or brass.....but it is very well made, is part of their "Pro" series of adapters and looks virtually identical to the one sold by Adorama.....right down to the model ID (PT645-HB) and the design of the lens release lever. I've only used it a couple of times thus far, but have had no difficult achieving infinity focus with my 80mm CFi lens on the 645NII.

Gary,

Thanks - I'll order one then, might as well as the other is on backorder for an unspecified time. I'm starting to suspect a lot of these come from the same manufacturer - if so perhaps the fotodiox is brass.

I just noticed that the actual model number listed on the Adorama site is identical to that on the Fotodiox site...so they are most likely from the same mfg, as you said.

Steven,

Yeah me too! The T/S 120 Makro just makes me drool - hope it lives up to Zeiss standards.

Have a look at the Hartblei Cam also: B3K Digital - Hartblei Cam

I got fed up with the AF on my PhaseOne/Mamiya kit and dumped the system to get the 645D, at the same time with eyes on the Hartblei Cam as it fits the new Zeiss line-up + EOS/F mount and provides a mobile platform for my Phase back.

Oops I better be careful - don't wanna get banned for blasphemy. Did I mention I think the 67 lenses have a lot of potential?
