Schneider Kreuznach Rolls Out 4 New SLR Lenses

Schneider Kreuznach has announced four new SLR lenses, including two Xenons, a Makro-Symmar and a Super-Angulon tilt-shift lens. The Xenon 35mm f/1.4 and Xenon 50mm f/1.4 are the fastest lenses in the line-up, while the Makro-Symmar 85mm f/2.4 provides outstanding resolving power to match the resolution of 30+ megapixel image sensors. The Super-Angulon 28mm f/4.5 Aspheric tilt-shift lens (pictured) offers 12mm of shift and 8 degrees of tilt, and an oversized image circle with a diameter of 72mm. According to the company, “[t]he advanced technology of the mechanics allows for movements independent of each other without degrading the image quality in resolution or in distortion which makes extreme displacements possible up to the edge of the coverage.”  All lenses are available with bayonet mounts for Canon EOS, Nikon F, Sony Alpha and Pentax K series SLR cameras.

Two Xenons, a Makro-Symmar and a Super-Angulon: SCHNEIDER KREUZNACH unveils four new lenses at photokina

17.09.12, 12 Uhr

Schneider-Kreuznach introduces not just one but several completely new lenses for full frame single-lens reflex cameras at photokina 2012. A Makro-Symmar and a new Super-Angulon as well as two new Xenon lenses are among the highlights at the photo industry’s most important trade fair.

A newly recalculated Makro-Symmar with a focal length of 85 millimeters and an aperture of 2.4 will be presented. The range of DSLR lenses has been expanded to include two fixed focal lengths of 35 and 50 millimeters and a fast 1.4 aperture. A new tilt-shift lens is also among the new products: The 28/4.5 Super-Angulon Aspheric is a wide-angle lens especially designed for architectural photography.

With these four newly recalculated lenses Schneider-Kreuznach meets ever increasing demands resulting from a continuous decrease in pixel size. They have been optimized for maximum performance for the latest sensor sizes and feature outstanding imaging performance. The high optical quality of the lenses was achieved by using high-quality material. “All lenses are calculated in Bad Kreuznach, where they are manufactured with the highest precision. We are particularly proud of the high image quality and the modern design of these new lenses,” says Frithjof Spangenberg, product manager for Photo Imaging at Schneider-Kreuznach. All lenses are available with bayonet mounts for Canon EOS, Nikon-F, Sony Alpha and Pentax-K.

The new products at a glance: 85 mm/2.4 Makro-Symmar, 28 mm/4.5 Super-Angulon Aspheric, 35 mm/1.4 Xenon and 50 mm/1.4 Xenon.

For more information on all new Schneider-Kreuznach products, visit us at photokina 2012 from 18 September in hall 4.2, booth D.021.

  1. That lens just looks cool. The blue ring is awesome.

  2. Cant wait to try them out. I had the chance to rent and try out their Schneider 28mm f/2.8 PC lens. And all I can say is wow! Its build like a swiss watch, but tough as a tank. I just wish I could have afforded to buy it :(

  3. I wonder how the 85mm Schneider compares with a Pentax-A 85mm f/1,4

  4. I am aware of the benefits of lens tilt for DOF, but I wonder whether there's a significant advantage to the shift feature, when images can easily be corrected for convergence in PS. I know the latter requires cropping and thus degradation, but does it merit the much greater cost (and lack of autofocus & auto-aperture functionality) of such a lens design? I would like to see a comparison of shift vs. post-correction for the equivalent focal length. With the more affordable Pentax MF digital cameras, image size and quality are high enough to write off any degradation due to cropping. I'm thinking maybe it's better to put the money toward acquiring a MF camera instead.
