I'm thinking about upgrading my Rodenstock 35mm f/4.5 Apo-Sironar digital to a Schneider 35mm f/5.6 Apo-Digitar XL. The Rodenstock is "ok" but does not really have the corner sharpness I'd like for my 33 megapixel 36x48mm Aptus 75 at f/11 shifted 10mm.
It would be sad though to upgrade to Schneider 35XL just to find out that the corner performance is about the same. I know the Rodenstock Digaron-W 40mm is a safer bet, but it is a bit narrow FOV and more expensive. If the Schneider don't perform at f/11, I will have no choice though. (LCC is no problem with the Aptus 75 by the way, so I don't need retrofocus.)
Ideally I'd like to have sharpness similar to my Schneider 47XL. Trying to interpret MTF charts it seems like it could be the case, but a couple of pixel peep corner crops would be nice to look at to know what to expect, especially when shifted a bit.
Is there any 35XL user out there that could tell/show what to expect from this lens?
