Auto Mamiya-Sekor CS 28mm f/2.8 Lens
This is the standard wide angle lens for the NC series. I can readily imagine that most people who bought the camera added a 28mm wide-angle and/or a 135mm telephoto lens to their system, which is why these lenses are readily available on the used market.

The performance of this lens is pretty standard for a 28mm lens from a reputable manufacturer such as Mamiya. Sharpness in the center and contrast are very good. Corner sharpness could be a little bit better when stopped down. Nothing really damaging -- or very exciting, but very useable.

However, while relatively good overall, it doesn't seem to perform quite as well as the 21mm CS lens.
