    WTB: ALPA HPF Rings Schneider 35mm & 47mm

    Hi all,

    I have no idea where to find these, hunting online with no luck. If you know or have either/both for sale, please let me know. Would be very appreciative.

    Schneider Apo-Digitar 5.6/35 mm XL = AAS 36
    Schneider Super-Angulon 5.6/47 mm XL = SSA 47

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Sorry I don't have these to sell (although I have them both myself) but since you were asking where you could find them - you can source them from any of the Alpa dealers. In the US that would be Fotocare in NYC, Dodd Camera in Chicago or Bear Images in Palo Alto/Seattle.

    I'm in Australia, so Alpa dealers are limited, also with limitations on what they can supply.

    Do you remember their cost?

    Thanks for the reply Graham :-)

    Very happy with the rings - they just simply work. You can buy either ft or m calibrated rings and then it's dead simple to fit them. They even have videos on how to do it although basically it's just a case of correctly aligning the infinity mark.

    If you are zone focusing and just stacking images then you don't really need HPF rings. If you want greater precision for accurate focus distances (such as when using a distometer) then they can help a lot although primarily at closer distances. IMHO.

    As regards cost, well yes they were expensive and subject to the Swiss Franc conversion rate. Mine cost $320 or so each back in 2011 but maybe less/more now. Factory price is 253 CHF.

    For Oz you could try the Alpa rep:

    AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND
    L&P Digital Photographic
    Bruce Pottinger
    96 Reserve Road
    Artamon NSW 2064
    Australia
    Phone +61 2 9906 2733
    Fax +61 2 9906 1102
    E-Mail: [email protected]
    Web: L&P Complete Imaging Solutions - L & P Digital Photographic

    They do sometimes come up on the used market but only very rarely and typically when someone is selling off their lenses or getting them remounted on an Arca or lens board.

    Good luck with your search!
