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

Bad Kreuznach, (PresseBox) - 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.
