Included lenses.

45 Copal and Electronic Shutter (SES) lenses in all these world-famous
Schneider lens designs are included in the Instant Rebate Program:

Apo-Symmar "L"
120/5.6 Copal #0, 150/5.6 Copal #0, 180/5.6 Copal #1
The well-proven Apo-Symmar lens series has been redesigned to the current state-of-the-art. Virtually all covering power has been expanded and imaging performance optimized. Focal lengths between 120 and 480 mm deliver normal perspective pictures without wide-angle or telephoto effects.

Apo-Tele-Xenar HM
400/5.6 Copal #3, 12/800 Copal #3, 9/600 Copal #3
This 5-element telephoto lens system has a 35-degree view angle for use with a focal length of 400mm for formats up to 13cm X 18cm and with a focal length of 800mm for formats up to 30cm X 40cm.

Fine Art XXL
1100/22 Copal #3, 550/11 Copal #3
For maximum sharpness, detail reproduction and richness of tone, serious photographers often use very large cut-film between 8"x10" and 20"x24." These lenses are designed to meet this need. Both provide low distortion, uniformly high resolution over the entire 900mm image circle, and large adjustment reserves, even with the popular 7"x17" and 8"x20" panorama formats. XXL lenses have filter threads front and back.

Macro-Symmar HM
120/5.6 Copal #0, 180/5.6 Copal #1, 80/5.6 Copal #0
Designed for medium and large formats; excels in close work. Has an 8-element lens computed for 1:1 that can be used for copying flat objects and other material with the highest resolution with reduction or enlargement of 1:2 or 2:1, extendable to 1:4 and 4:1 for normal product and table-top photography and machine vision applications.

Super-Angulon Classic
90/6.8 Copal #0
This is a special purpose, ultra-wide-angle lens for medium and large format photography.

38/5.6 Copal #0, 47/5.6 Copal #0, 58/5.6 Copal #0, 72/5.6 Copal #0, 90/5.6 Copal #0
The latest 8-element, 120-degree wide-angle design for large format photography. Extended angle of view enables maximum camera movements

Super-Symmar XL Aspheric
150/5.6 Copal #1, 210/5.6 Copal #3, 80/4.5 Copal #0
These compact 6-element, 4-component aspheric lenses have a 105-degree angle of view. Ideal for the most demanding studio applications, they enable the extreme camera movements required for architectural and dynamic studio photography and provide a brighter and more uniform screen image.

Apo-Digitar (Wide Angle)
24/5.6 Copal #0, 35/5.6 Copal #0, 47/5.6 Copal #0, 28/2.8 Copal #0
The first genuine wide-angle focal lengths for view cameras with digital backs. With an image circle of 60mm to 110mm they have capacity for adjustment, correction of perspective "converging lines" as well as for depth of field control according to the Scheimpflug law.

Apo-Digitar (Standard Focal Lengths)
100/5.6 Copal #0, 120/5.6 Copal #0, 60/4.0 Copal #0, 72/5.6 Copal #0, 80/4.0 Copal #0,

This large range of closely staggered focal lengths guarantees the most suitable lens for digital cameras and every angle of view and the image circle diameter. Apochromatic correction reduces color fringing.

The meticulous flattening of the field curvature of these lenses enhances the advantage of the perfectly plane digital sensor surfaces. Sharpness is still fine even at higher scales.

Macro Apo-Digitar (Macro-Digitar)
120/5.6 Copal #0, 80/5.6 Copal #0, 120/5.6 SES, 80/5.6 SES
