Schneider 28XL and P45+


Active member
While there's been a lot of talk about the problems of using the new Schneider Super Digitar XL28/5.6 on the IQ180, there's not a whole lot out there about using it on earlier generation DBs.

I was wondering if anyone on the forum was using it on a microlens free digital back, such as the P45+ ? If so, what have you experienced in terms of light fall-off, colour casts and amount of shift achievable? I'm looking at the 28mms from Rodenstock and Schneider, and since I won't be moving from my P45+ anytime soon the Schneider could be an option - especially given the size, IC, weight and price advantage over the Rodenstock.

i hope it works as well... but i won't be the first to spend that amount of cash as a beta user...

There was time when pro gear were properly working out of the box... now, we have to test everything again and again... it's the new meaning of pro product ;-(
