I want a Lensbaby for my 645D

Don't laugh, but I am serious (or that I am running out of ideas). I thought there was one for 67 mount long time ago, no??

I have. Therefore I need one. This is a sure sign of maturity.

Yes. There sure was one for 6x7 mount.

I saw a copy in Wellington Photographic Supplies in Wellington, New Zealand.

They did want a few hundred dollars for it though.

They made a Lensbaby 3G in a Pentax 6x7 mount. I have one. I don't know if they made one for the 645 but obviously you can adapt the 6x7 one. To change aperture you have to insert one of several different inner diameter "aperture disks" ( look like washers) over the front element.

Edit The focal length is approximately 100mm with apertures disks for f4, 5.6, 8, 11, 22, 32 and f45.

Well, I have. 67 to 645 adapter.

Also, I have a lensbaby composer for k mount, with few optics, aperture disc and all.

You want to sell it? LoL

Hmm, I'm certainly not using it. I'll give it some thought.

I got my some years ago for use with APS-C camera and picked up the 3G in 67 mount just in case I wanted to also use it on my 67. But I haven't to date used it on my 67 and no longer have a Pentax DSLR.

Fontan,

I've just rung the store in Wellington - Wellington Photographic Supplies - and they still have the Lensbaby for Pentax 6x7 in stock.

This is a new item that they ordered for a customer who did not complete the purchase. New price is NZ$899 (US$750) but they are willing to sell it for no margin at NZ$650 (US$540). Plus shipping.

If you are interested in the lens you can email George (aka Big G) on big.g@wps.net.nz , and he should be able to fix you up.

Regards

Chris

Hello

I have what you are looking for - but I use it mainly on my 67
Startseite / Dies & Das / Lensbaby-Fotos | Klaus-macht-Bilder.de

Sorry - If you find one and use it on a 645d think about the crop factor - the LB is 100mm!

The creator of lensbaby, Craig Strong, adapted a Mamiya 645 3G with a Pentax 645 mount for me. It has a a wider view than the P67 version. Unfortunately both the P67 and M645 3G were discontinued a few years ago but pop up occasionally on the auction site. And how you would adapt it to the P645 is another issue. I attached a few photos from my P645NII/lensbaby 3G/no aperture created at the Dia de los Muertos (Oaxaca, MX). Good luck!
