The TLS Mamiya 645 lenses gift the cinephile with Mamiya’s iconic medium format magic, offering so much more than cine functionality in ergonomic rehousing.

For a start, the out-of-focus rendering is clearly not from any modern lens, and their asymmetrical front to back bokeh provides character and texture yet remains smooth so as not to be distracting.

Another quality showing the excellence of TLS is the optical re-engineering that’s created better image consistency between focal lengths. There’s also a focal length reducer included, allowing the full medium format image to be rendered onto a FF cinema camera sensor. This work has naturally altered each lens’s focal length and speed, though they’re surprisingly easy to work with.

These lenses have a very high resolution, albeit with lowered contrast, and a gentle approach to the rendering of fine details. Although the off-axis fall-off draws the eye inwards, their soft, multi-coloured flares of purple, blue, lime, pink and gold (as well as the odd rainbow) mean they sit in the sweet spot of being modern whilst having just enough of a vintage look.

Two of the lenses have become famous: the fast 57mm T1.6 (f1.3) and the 80mm f1.9 that Wally Pfister used extensively to shoot The Dark Knight, which was shot on IMAX using these modified medium format lenses.

The Mamiya 645s are Ideal for those used to shooting with modern glass but are also looking for vintage aberrations.
