Go to the Medium Format Pictures thread and find any photo by mikeSF or mattb123 and click on it. This will bring you to their Flickr site where they post their pictures and then keep arrowing through their pictures until you find what you're looking for. Mattb123 in particular has posted a lot using this particular lens.

It performs really well from 80mm up to about 120-140mm stopped down.

I don't use it below f11, but that's for landscape use.

PM me and I can send you some 100% crops when I have a chance.

I use my 645D system for portraits mostly, not much landscapes. But here are a few with my 80-160 FA.

I have the older A80-160 version but it performs great for landscapes:

Painted Ladies

Lady Washington

Between Peaks

Road To Hobbiton

those were all shot with the 645D.

Love that Hobbiton shot Mike. Did you have to focus stack for that image?

thanks! i used f/14 and no stacking, but it is a 5-exposure HDR because the dynamic range was pretty huge. As a result, the compression gives it a surreal look.

that spot is very unique in that there aren't any trees like that out on the Pt. Reyes penninsula; these were planted to line the driveway to the RCA/Marconi ship to shore radio relay station. I can only image, they did not think the tree tunnel would ever become this beautiful, but it is stunning!

Just a quick question about this lens. I just discovered that the retail price of the FA645 80-160mm is around 2000$, but all reviews in the review section write they bought it for around 1/4 of that price. Ebay confirm that used prices are that low. Why is it so low?
