I'm planning to get a wide angle lens for my view camera sooner or later and am contemplating on getting one of the lenses below. I will be using it in combination with my Aptus 22. Of course I plan to upgrade my back in the more distant future but would like to invest in a lens that might aswell work on a sensor with higher pixel density like a P45+.
Maybe you can help me out by giving a brief review of these three lenses:
Perhabs someone has used them and knows their limits.
-Schneider Kreuznach Apo-Digitar XL 35mm f/5,6
-Schneider Kreuznach Super Angulon XL 38mm f/5,6
-Rodenstock/Sironar Apo-Grandagon 35mm f/4,5
The large image circle (139mm!) of the SA 38mm does appeal to me but so does the opening of the Grandagon since I'm using a ground glass to focus.
I've read that people consider the 35mm Apo-Digitar to be less ideally suited for higher megapixel backs but I would still rank it better than the Super Angulon and the Grandagon.
So where to start? I know it's as always: Test for yourself.
Anyway, I would like to hear your opinions first just to point me in some direction. Thanks.
