Schneider 72mm F5. 6 Angulon XL With (Rare) Centre Filter And Polariser
Item History and Pricing
|Focal Length: 72mm||Maximum Aperture: f/5|
|Series: Schneider Super-Angulon XL|
Widest lens for 5x7” and 6x17cm formats.
Down to just the 7x17” format, so my smaller format lenses must go.
This was my favourite lens for 6x17cm.
One of the last new LF lenses released, and the image quality shows. Amazing.
It’s in excellent condition (see photos). Glass is beyond fault to my eyes. Late model Copal shutter is fine. Includes lens wrap.
...Also included is the rare-ish dedicated Schneider centre filter. Also in excellent condition.
Make no mistake: this filter is needed for this lens. You can’t beat physics and, being such a wide angled lens, the Cosine Law kicks in!!
Under loupe, there is a microscopically thin mark, about 3mm long, way off centre. So fine that I can’t even get it to appear in a photo, but, full disclosure. It comes with front cap and the OEM case.
Finally, there’s also a Polarising filter. This is the 95c Tiffen Professional model. A high quality filter fit for a high quality lens. No scrimping here.
Of course, tracked/signed shipping is mandatory.
Thanks for looking.
