Pentax 645 55mm F2.8 shots?

Hi everyone,

I'm re-considering a 55mm F2.8 lens for the 645 systems (the film ones), so I'm wondering if people can post up shots taken with this lens? I'm having a hard time finding any!

The 75mm F2.8 lens great but sometimes I wish I had it a bit wider for the more documentary-type shots. Would like to see if the 55mm F2.8 fits the bill! Thanks!

I have some posted here on my flickr site.

I find this my least used lens mostly because when I got the 645 45mm, it's just so much better at wide angel than the 55. Mine is the A version.

Hello

For me the combination 55/2,8 & 150/3,5 is the perfect setup - most of the cases 45, 75 & 200 mm stay at home (like the bulky 6x7 lenses).

Currently (during holiday) I have no access to any pictures for upload - sorry

Best regards
Klaus

Oops! Didn't update this thread - I have since bought the 55mm F2.8 and like it quite a lot. Not super wide, but I kind of use it as a wide normal.
