    Schneider 35LS Blue Ring

    First off thank you to Steve @ Capture Integration for taking my $$ for my new Schneider 35LS. Received it this morning and have had a few moments to play with it and WOW...Very nice piece of glass! This ALMOST completes my lens wish list, the 240LS is all thats left. Capture integration made this purchase a great experience, they worked with me with a time issue I had, and Brad made sure the lens was pristine before shipping out.
    I look forward to creating some great images with this lens!!

    Do you have the 40-80mm? Just wondering how much smaller it is

    I am pretty sure the 40-80mm is even a bigger beast. I have it and chose it over the new 35mm for versatility and less lens changing. It's very good though. Using the WL finder now exclusively, it lightens the load a bit

    Any chance to do a comparison against the contax 645 35mm?

    Dough, I've got both and the 40-80 is heavier and slightly larger but well worth it. Actually both lenses are well worth it....

    I turned down a good deal on the 40-80 from my dealer because I have the 35, an outstanding version of the 55 and a perfect 80. I figured I didn't need both the 35 and the zoom.

    I don't need them both.

    @ drevil

    Maybe I should contact Christopher Hauser in Munich. I think he has a P1 XF 35f3.5 blue ring / XF / IQ 3100 combo and we could do a little comparison vs. my Contax 645 35f3.5 / Contax 645 cam / IQ 180 combo :-)

    (or also other primes ...)

    I can't compare but once had the Contax 645 35mm. It wasn't that huge. 95mm filter thread though

    We always can do that. Even throw in the 32 Rodenstock.

    The Blue Ring 35 is about 2/3 the length of the Blue Ring 40-80 and the same diameter - both use 105mm threads. You can see the exact dimensions on the Phase One web site. Weight of the 40-80 is about 50% more than the 35.
