Hi,

Am new to medium format, i borrowed a Mamiya AF 45mm F 2.8 lens and whenever i try to click any photo the mirror goes up and remains there until i switch of body and back...

The Mamiya AF 45mm focuses ok but am not able to click any photo and whenever i connect the lens and start body and back there is some sound coming from either body or lens

while the body and back works perfectly with my schneider kreuznach 80 mm lens.. am i missing something ?

Power issue? Firmware perhaps? Do you have a dealer who can walk you through all options?

I get same issue with the P1 DF+ and Leaf Aptus 22. I use the 45mm, 80mm and 150mm but haven't noticed if the problem is just with the 45mm. I am pretty sure it happens with my 80mm as well.

Would love to hear of any rectifications.
