    What lens did you use for these macro shots? These are very nice!

    The next thing I want to buy is a macro lens for my Mamiya 645 Pro TL. Any reason I should pick this 120 f4 over the 80mm f4? Any personal insight would be appreciated :-)

    My husband bought this lens in 2005 and now it is sharing with me.
    When he bought, he had only two lens for Mamiya M645 : 80mm f1.9 and 55mm f2.8. He wanted slight long focal lens. And he thought it would be much easier to take macro photos than 80mm f4. Because 120mm is not needed auto macro spacer.
    I can take macro photos easily with this lens.

    Thanks for the info! I checked again and there is a 80mm macro lens, that doesn't need the macro auto tube. It will either be the 80mm macro or the 120mm macro like yours. Looking at this shot, it might be the 120mm :-). Do you have a pic that shows me the closest you can go?

    Also, how close did you go to the flower to make this shot, approximately?
