    Hasselblad 50C sensor with Schneider APO-Digitar XL 24mm f/5.6

    I'm hoping someone may be able to advise on using the SK XL 24mm with the Hassy 50C sensor (on a cambo WRS 1200).
    SK have discontinued production of the lens for some reason.
    Are there resolution issues with this combination? I know the lens hasn't the greatest of images circles but I have an opportunity to get one for a reasonable price.

    I'll appreciate any user experiences.
    Thanks,
    Grant

    Grant,
    This lens has only got a 60mm image circle, and has extreme curvature to cover that. Given that the 44x33 sensor requires a 55mm circle just to cover it and, in addition, appreciates very perpendicular light rays, this would be a bad choice. Just not useable. Originally designed for 24x36 or at most 37x37 sensors.
    Hope this helps.
