It’s unlikely that Sony shooters are going to go out and buy Mamiya 645 lenses, but it’s not outside of the realm of possibility for Mamiya 645 shooters to pick up a Sony for when they want to carry something a little lighter. Occasionally, though, they may want to use their 645 lenses on that little Sony body, so Kipon has answered the call.
They’ve announced two new adapters which offer full electronic aperture control via your Sony body. The M645-S/E E adapter is for Mamiya brand 645 lenses and M645-S/E ES adapter is for Phase One/Schneider brand 645 lenses to let you mount them to Sony E mount bodies.
Both adapters offer an aluminium and brass construction, infinity focus and electronic aperture control through the camera. The latter of those three features is something that Kipon’s previous Mamiya 645 to E Mount adapter does not have.
The M645-S/E E for Mamiya brand lenses is available to buy now for $289 and the M645-S/E ES for Phase One/Schneider brand lenses is also available to buy now for $389. Exactly when it will ship depends on your geographical location.
