Any opinions on this lens? It's the version for 645, not 67. I have the opportunity to buy one, but there's very little info available online.

It's a not very common lens for the 645, and quite sought after. That alone suggests it to be useful. I would immediately buy it, even though I've never been using one! Why?

Several normal to tele lenses from the Sekor C and Sekor A series I own are very well corrected, e. g. the Sekor C 4/80mm Macro (no CAs at all visible on 43 MP FF), the Sekor A 4/120mm Macro (no CAs at all visible on 43 MP FF), the Sekor C 4/210mm (better than most vintage 4/200mm lenses and comparable to the AiS Nikkor 2.8/180mm ED), and the Sekor C 5.6/300mm ULD (as good as the very best vintage 300mm lenses such as the Nikkor 4.5/300mm ED "non-IF", the Canon FL 5.6/300mm Fluorite and the Canon FD 2.8/300mm Fluorite).

I would be surprised if the Sekor C 2.8/110mm was an outlier ...

I have one. The positives are great sharpness and pleasing rendering.
The negatives are size and weight compared to a full frame lens but it's not too bad. The focusing ring is not smooth, needs new lube probably. This is worth checking
It was about 150 EUR from Japan.



I made two threads about it:

Thanks for your thoughts. I finally bought it. Mechanically perfect. Backside of front element has light fungus around the edges. Doesn't look alarming to me and I'll probably try to remove it.
