Now I really want to get a 645Z and have it as a second body to my GFX 100. And the 80-160mm lens. I never thought I'd say this: but I finally love the output from a zoom lens, and that too is an eleven year old one.

Hi.

The picture is just lovely.

I’m glad that you are enjoying the 645Z and the FA 80-160 F4.5.

Regarding the lens, there are 2 versions of the 80-160 F4.5:

- A manual version from 1984

- FA autofocus version from 1997

Both versions have the same optical formula. So you took that photograph with a lens that goes back to 1984, 36 years ago.

I find my A 80-160 F4.5 incredibly sharp with my 645D. I made a big print (1,3m x 1,7m) that I have in my house and the level of detail is fantastic.
