The Mamiya 180mm f/4 Soft Focus Lens is a special lens designed for use in portraiture and product photography.
Mamiya lenses are quality controlled at all stages. They are engineered for professional use. Mamiya manufactures its own glass and coats the lens elements using Mamiya's proprietary multi-coating process, increasing light transmission, dramatically reducing flare, and ensuring crisp, clean whites and vibrant natural colors.
Note: When using the Softness Control Discs, you must set the lens at full aperture (f/4). With Disc No. 1 the effective aperture is approx. f/5; with Disc No. 2 the effective aperture is approx. f/5.6; and for Disc No. 3 the effective aperture is approx. f/6.3
- Variable softness lens for portraiture capable of sharp results when stopped down
- A special spherical aberration has been purposely designed into this lens to produce images that are sharp yet which have an alluring softness
- The soft effect is eliminated when this lens is stopped down to f/8 or more so the same sharp images obtained with standard lenses are available when desired
- The soft focus effect can be varied using the three different Softness Control Discs provided with the lens
