    Schneider Apo-Digitar 5.6/60 mm (ALPA Apo-Helvetar 5.6/60 mm)?

    Does someone own or has someone used this lens? The huge image circle looks pretty attractive ...

    Doug from Capture integration tested it (I will find link). So far everything thing points to this being an excellent performer. I had it on order for months before changing around my lens lineup. Very slow to come to market and I don't think there are a lot out there.

    Thanks for the hint, Terry! I had forgotten that Doug also tested the 60mm ...

    It should be great, but the sample tested certainly wasn't.... Or it was tilted I don't know, but I expect a lot more from this lens.

    It is IMO a very good lens, huge IC (120mm), not as fast as its Rodenstock HR counterpart.
