The Mamiya 645E offers a level of professional quality in an affordable medium format system that's perfect for taking the step up to the 6 x 4.5cm format. It has the basic tools that make medium format ideal for going beyond simple 35mm snapshots, packaged into a camera that's easy to use, yet, capable of growing with you as you sharpen your photographic capabilities and creative sense.
The Mamiya 645E accepts the same interchangeable lenses available for the entire 645 series (except for the 645 Auto Focus lenses). This means that the photographer on a budget doesn't have to compromise optical performance, and will also be able to use the same fine lenses when upgrading to the more advanced Mamiya 645 Pro TL body.
