I would like to buy a Schneider Super Digitar 28mm 5.6 XL with center filter, mounted in Arca r-mount. Preferably within the EU.

Edit: The lens I was pointing out on ebay wasn't the right one. It was the WA digitar, not super digitar.

I know Cambo has one in stock....because I returned mine. Doesn't work with the Phase One IQ4 150. Perhaps they can put it in an Alpa mount? Contact Rene at Cambo. It was a brand new lens.

I shot with it on the IQ4-150 last year and it was every bit as stunning as I remember from when I shot with it on the IQ260 previously. The lens was - and still is - a technical tour de force IMHO, and one of the greatest tech camera lenses ever made. But I wasn't doing large shifts, or shooting into a setting sun etc etc - which is why a statement like 'it doesn't work' is pretty much meaningless without context.

I, and Capture Integration had completely different results from you. I bought it new from Cambo and tested it for one week in all lighting conditions and night images too. I agree with you about it was the best lens made previously, but now, it doesn't hold up. Tech cameras do have large shifts, thats why we buy them and I tested at every shift combination, and it was only on the XT. My Cambo WRS 5000 has much more movement so it would have failed even worse with that body. Marjor fall off and you had to make an LCC because of major color cast, which on the IQ4 150 with the BSI sensors, LCC's are basically a thing of the past. If we are going to use a $55K IQ4, $8K tech camera body and $7-$12K lenses, every option better be spot on in my opinion or I just won't use it. Corners were soft as well at F/8 and F/11. Just doesn't work with the new micron pixel size and 150 megapixels unfortunately. Call Dave or Brad at Capture Integration and ask them about it.
