Pentacon 6 lens for Contax 645



Hi there,
I have a Contax 645. Can anyone give me some advice on a lens I've been offered to go with it? It's a CZJ Sonnar 180mm for a Pentacon 6. How would you rate this lens? I know I would need an adaptor - are these widely available/expensive? I usually shoot candids, mostly small kids, and I find the longer lengths much more suitable for my style. I have just one lens for my 645, the 80 planar, do you think it's worth going for this other lens (about $200) or should I just keep saving?
Many thanks for your advice


Olympus is holding one day digital photo classes at several locations. There seems to be a $99 charge but the class lasts all day and could be interesting to those of us who still have lingering questions about choice of resolution, features, etc.

No, I'm not a shill for Olympus but thought it might be interesting.
