Has anybody tried the 75/2.8 AL? I know there is the FA and A version but the AL is really special. Super close focusing and truley special on the 67s. I imagine it would be DOPE on the 645z for portraits. I am holding onto mine with my 67II kit just in case I somehow become successful enough to buy a Z. :-)

I have one of the SMC 67 75 f2.8 AL, and I agree it's an excellent lens; of course, much larger and heavier than the 645 75mm, but I do prefer the AL. Hold on to it... it's good for portraits as well as a general purpose "walking around" lens. But perhaps I do have too much fondness for the 67 series lenses... they're just so old school but robust and for the select models, very nice rendering.

The 75AL may be old school but in the history of lens design, it is pretty modern. It was one of the last 67 lenses to be designed. It is most likely a Distagon variant like the latest 55mm.

Anyone tried the 105mm F2.4 on a 645Z? I'm intrigued by having such a bokeh monster in my arsenal but I'm skeptical that it is sharp enough for the Z.

I'm testing one of those now too. It can be a challenge to focus wide open, and it's a little long for the way I like to use it. It retains it's beautiful optical signature, but it's more like using an 85mm in the 35mm world. Great for portraits when well handled. Where as on the 67II it's just an all around dream.

fwiw, a couple of test shots of the 67 SMC105/2.4 on the 645D. Sorry for the subject matter, it was Christmas. Both wide open. For closer focus, i use a short extension tube and have shots to share if anyone is interested.

Thanks very much for posting these, they really show off the bokeh well and it still looks pretty damn sharp wide open. I'll have to keep my eye out for one.

the 67 105/2.4 I have does not have a very close minimum focus distance so I add my shortest extension tube for small objects that are close. Here are are examples using the extension tube, also wide open aperture as before
