NOTE: An available Tamron Adaptall-2 adapter allows the use of Tamron SP lenses (and perhaps others) with MSX-DSX cameras. Hard to find, the adapter makes the lenses compatible with the MSX-DSX open aperture meter system.

Additional Accessories Available for Mamiya MSX-DSX Cameras
The following are the original Mamiya accessories available for these cameras:

Filters: A series of five high-quality filters, designed to maintain the high performance of the Mamiya/Sekor SX lenses. They come in the following types: Y2, O2, UV, YG and SL (skylight).
Lens Hoods: A lens hood is, in most cases, a necessary accessory to keep unwanted light from striking the lens and causing a flare. Always use the lens hood recommended for a specific lens.
Diopter Correction
Many near- and far-sighted persons have difficulty looking through a viewfinder wearing glasses, but cannot focus accurately with them. Diopter Correction lenses, available in six different strengths, adjust for this deficiency.
Rubber Eye Cup: The Rubber Eye Cup, mounted on the rear viewfinder, helps prevent unwanted light from the back and sides.
Magnifier: Useful aid for critical focusing required in close-up photography. Mounts to rear viewfinder. Image size is doubled, and the Magnifier provides for diopter adjustment.
Angle Finder: Useful for low angles, the Angle Finder has click stops every 90º and freely rotates 360º. Has built-in diopter adjustment.
Extension Tubes:
A set of three tubes of different lengths, which mount singly or in combination between the camera body and lens, directly coupling with the MSX-DSX metering system and automatic diaphragm.
Auto Bellows: A versatile bellows unit for photomacrography. Rack and pinion control allows precise adjustment. Additional features include a double cable release for diaphragm automation and provision for mounting the lens reversed, for large magnifications.
Slide Copier: Used with the bellows unit, the slide copying attachment is mounted in front of the lens to allow copying of slides and filmstrips. It has a slide stage that makes it easy to crop mounted slides, and a removeable film tray to facilitate copying long rolls of 35mm film.
Bellows Stand: Actually a small stage for photographing small objects. The platform rotates to allow for best positioning, and has clips to hold objects in place. The surface has a reflectance of approximately 18%, ideal for exposure measurements. A clear glass stage is provided for backlighting and incident light measurement.
