Nearly four years on from the last post of this thread, what is the verdict on the Rodenstock 70mm vs. Schneider 72mm? I thought I saw a thread started on this recently, but can't seem to find it.
I have just finalised a deal on a Leaf Credo 60 to use on my Linhof Techno. I have been using the Techno for three years with film, using a Rodenstock 55mm APO–Sironar Digital and 90mm HR-W (blue band.) I've been scanning with my Imacon 949. I will use these two lenses with the Credo initially, but ideally I'd want to replicate the angle of view of each of these lenses on 6x7cm film with the 60mpx Dalsa sensor. So... My ideal setup would be the Rodie 40HR and the Rodie 70 or SK72.
My question can really be broken down into three parts:
1: If pushing to the edge of the image circle, does either fall off in sharpness in an objectionable way?
2: If making use of a good portion of the image circle with movements, is either better in terms of colour cast and falloff if using C1 8 and performing LCC shots? This in terms of the Dalsa 60mpx sensor.
3: Does the SK require a centre filter for best performance, or could I get away without one?
While both are reasonably priced lenses when mounted in a Technika board, the SK is a bit cheaper.
Looking forward to contributing some digital discussions soon!
