Leaf aptus 22 afd mount on a newer 645DF body?

Postby AndreR » Mon Aug 04, 2014 6:26 pm

I love my afd with my Leaf aptus 22 back and I want to buy the new 645df and take advantage of the new LS lenses. Can I still use my leaf aptus 22 on the newer bodies? :mrgreen:

The Leaf Aptus 22 should work well with a 645DF. I think the maximum sync speed with that back is 1/800.

I use my first generation leaf aptus 22 on a mamiya 645df+ body and am able to sync at 1/800 with an 80mm LS lens. It doesn't seem to have any problems that are out of the ordinary from what other folks have with more modern backs. It will occasionally misfire (as a seemingly prolonged exposure) requiring that I pull out the battery briefly. And then it reliably works again. It doesn't really slow me down at this point. I have read other folks who have similar issues with newer backs. I don't recall having this issue with my afdII body. But then again I could only sync at 1/125 with that body. The images are outstanding with both setups. Definitely faster focus with the DF+.
