    Phase One 75-150LS

    Did anyone ever hear when this might actually become available?

    Re: Phase One 75-150LS

    I am curious about this lens and how it might be different from the current Phase 75-150.
    For many subjects the 75-150is a lovely very sharp lens with little falloff.
    I am really not sure if I need a leaf shutter for most all of my uses.

    I happened to see a photo of it on a DF+ at Photokina but I don't recall hearing anything specifically about it's availability though. It looked pretty much the same as the current lens unsurprisingly except with the SK silver banding etc.

    Here it is:

    It is one of my favorite swiss-army-knife lenses and would be surprised if they improved it optically.

    I suppose if you want the faster flash sync ... for me until they can change the camera so the focal plane shutter gets out of the way when you mirror lockup, the Leaf shutter doesn't seem to offer any advantage.

    Lets hope the rumored "new" body has that capability, since they couldn't put it in the recent upgraded DF.

    Re: Phase One 75-150LS

    We were told it would be available "soon".

    Actually there was a rough time frame mentioned, but I purposely chose not to hear it, because of the previously mentioned time frames.

    I think the 75-150 D Lens is a fine optic. Is there room for improvement? Certainly, IMO. So - the anticipation would be that, for the price, the 75-150 SK LS does increase the resolution/performance, and it does also offer Leaf Shutter use for those who would take advantage of it.

    I will say the unit they had in Germany felt very well made.

    Re: Phase One 75-150LS

    I see this lens now listed as available - has anyone bought one?


    And how are the images at the different focal lengths?


    Any report would be nice to hear.

    Mal,
    I don't really see it listed as available.

    https://captureintegration.com/produ...one-db/page/2/

    shows the heading LS 75-150mm, but with a picture instead of the 75mm LS (notice it has no zoom ring.) Maybe they're just available to order, because if you click on it, it says out of stock.

    Re: Phase One 75-150LS

    Yes the Phase One 75-150LS is available (we have them in stock).
    We just received our first shipment of them late last week.
    There is one sitting on Dougs to test out and get some sample images posted.

    Re: Phase One 75-150LS

    Can't wait to see sample images and hear some thoughts on the differences to the previous one. I will probably get one before the fall if everything looks good.

    Steve

    Looks like they are just arriving - I had only seen a one line under lens compatibility.

    Specular: Phase One 645DF+ camera system

    Well I guess we can all look forward to seeing the test results.


    Regards

    Re: Phase One 75-150LS

    congratulations - I for one look forward to seeing what you think of this lens -

    Do you have either the SK 110 LS or the SK 150 LS (or both for that matter) that you can compare the lens against?

    Re: Phase One 75-150LS

    I was surprised to see the new version is bigger and heavier. 1800 grams / 3.96 pounds (compared to 1114 g. / 2.5 lbs)is going to make the camera with lens and digital back heavy. And nearly seven inches long 4.2” x 6.8" shows this is not the same design as the old lens. With 95mm filter diameter it seems they made a large front element, so I expect this lens will be sharp wide open. The main trade-off of the zoom compared to primes will be the slower maximum f-stop, and the weight. Hopefully, Aeaemd will fill us in.

    Re: Phase One 75-150LS

    One of my friend bought this lens month ago. The lens is really chunky although the balance is quite okay. No issue with AF speed as other LS lens. Re optical quality, looked very sharp wide open ! Only too expensive and huge to me

    Re: Phase One 75-150LS

    Ok, so it appears the Phase SK 75-150 LS is out, albeit maybe in limited quantities. Looks like a different magic lens formula than the Phase 75-150D---95mm filter thread vs. 77mm filter thread, and nearly four pounds vs 2.5 pounds in weight.

    Anyone with this lens? Feedback and impressions?

    Re: Phase One 75-150LS

    I had the chance to shoot it at the Acadia workshop and found it to be an excellent lens, although having not shot the 75-150 D I don't have anything to compare it to.

    It is a large lens and a bit heavy if you are going to shoot for a while without a monopod or tripod, but from the 3 hours or so that I shot with it, I found the focus to be sharp and fairly quick (coming from a longtime Nikon user), and the images had a nice overall appearance to them.
