I've started similar topic at Strobist.com group, wonder what are Your thoughts about my idea:
Just wonder about the image quality. What about image optical resolution (MTF)? Will it be better than with normal APS-C type lens? What about chromatic aberration and other distortions? I'm considering getting some Mamiya 645 sekor C lenses. Which ones? I would be pretty interested now in 80mm f4 macro and 210 f4 prime.
But... is it worth it? What about the image quality of Mamiya/Hasselblad prime lenses connected to aps-c body? My first thoughts when hearing 'mamiya' were allways associated with 'quality'. But how about connection canon-mamiya?
Or maybe the advantage of medium format photography is only in its sensor/film size, and the lenses does not need to be opticaly better than the ones dedicated to 35mm cameras?
I googled the topic, but it is very hard to find any samples Does anyone from here tried it? Can You post any samples? Did You performed any optical tests in similar setup?
