Is there anyone out there using the (relatively new) Schneider 60mm f5.6 Apo Digitar lens on film and / or with a digital back? What's it like with movements on film and is the image circle restrictive for moderate rise / fall? On digital, is it up to snuff with 60mp? And with rise / fall movements?
I've recently bought a Linhof Techno – although not received it yet – and originally ordered a Rodenstock 55mm f4,5 Apo-Grandagon because it has a far larger image circle that would be ideal for 6x7cm film, although less than ideal for 40mp+ digital. Due to a delay in Rodenstock delivery to the dealer, I have the option on the 60mm Schneider (for more money) for a Rodenstock Apo-Sironar Dig. 4.5/55mm. Does anyone have opinions on any of these lenses on film and digital? I don't need MASSIVE movements, just moderate. I guess I'd prefer to buy once and not have to worry about upgrading my glass when I do finally go to a fully digital workflow.
I guess it'd be informative to say that I'm used to Mamiya 7 lenses, which I always found near on perfect. I shoot mainly at f11 and (obviously with the Techno) on a tripod. Do the cheaper Rodenstock 55mm lenses stack up to the Mamiya 7 50mm?
Thanks for your help!
