I'd be very interested to know if there is a bellows for the Mamiya 645
that contracts far enough to permit infinity focusing of a suitable
Leica M 90/135/200mm lens head affixed to it. *IF* that were possible,
I'd need a Leica-screw-(whatever size it is for that lens head)-to-
Mamiya-645-bayonet adaptor. And it would work- maybe, if I was lucky,
with more than one lens head. Any 645 users know about bellows?
