ALPA Schneider APO-DIGITAR  5.6/35 mm XL, LB -
nice AA / ++

Very nice original ALPA Schneider 35XL of which the complete history is known. This lens was occasionally used on a Seitz Roundshot D3 panorama camera. This camera was equipped with an electronic shutter so the Copal shutter on the lens itself was never used. Also, the lens was always set to infinity. Both Copal and Helical mount were never used. The lens was checked in January 2019, re-tuned and found to be in order by our ALPA colleague and also official Schneider service point Christoph Greiner. The lens shows very slight traces of use. Glass is of course clear, clean and dust-free. Shutter is as new and therefore free of grease etc. The 35XL (equivalent to Switar 36) is one of the most sold ALPA lenses. The offer as a second hand is reasonable but in most cases the Copal shutters are in need of replacement and that is a very expensive intervention.

The 35XL offered by us is rare in this condition. We rate this lens with AA/+++ because of small traces of use at the edges, technically the lens is AAA/++++ with nice running Helical mount and perfect Copal shutter! The lens has been tested on Phase One IQ3 Trichromatic* and IQ150 backs. Lens may be tested here with us.
*) at 100MP in zero position (no shift). The 35mm XL is a symmetrical lens which limits the use with shift adjustment on digital backs with CMOS sensor of 80-100MP due to the surface structure of these sensors. We always advise to make a LCC image prior to the final image. If you have such a digital back, please come and test it first. But ... This lens is again suitable for the new Phase One IQ4 150MP back. This has a different surface structure so that linited shift is possible again and the 35mm XL is therefore a cheap Wide angle lens.
The lens can be fitted with an HPF ring as desired.

The lens is supplied inclusive:
  • original packaging 
  • 2 lens lids
  • Optech lens protector
  • ALPA lens cloth
