Why is the Mamiya 7ii so expensive?

You can probably find a Mamiya 7II with an 80mm lens for around $3000 or more.

What is a Mamiya 7ii?

Does the Mamiya 7 shoot 220 or 120 roll film?

While this is true, the Mamiya 7 is also capable of handling 220 roll film with just a twist of the pressure plate. I tend to prefer 120 after having standardized on 220 Tri-X for a while, since the shorter roll usually means unexposed film sits in the camera for shorter periods of time until I can finish it off.

Is the 65mm really better than the 80mm?

So no, the 65mm is not “better” than the 80. In terms of sharpness it is actually the other way around MTF 3.9 verus MTF 3.8 (close enough that you probably wont see a difference without a loupe, if that). I have not seen any differences in contrast, color balance/saturation etc in the 7’s lenses. Uniformly great lenses in the lineup.
