Schneider Apo-Digitar 80/4.0
The Schneider 80mm f/4 Apo Digitar L Lens is a standard view large format lens specifically designed for use with digital backs, which require extremely resolved, color correct image circles of a smaller size. Digital backs also benefit from use at larger apertures to avoid image degradation from diffraction, and this Digitar can comfortably be used at its maximum aperture at all times. This version of the lens is mounted to a conventional Copal #0 shutter.
The 80mm Digitar is appropriate for use with backs as large as 37x49mm, and upon such backs it will capture an image area similar to that of a 21mm lens upon a 56mm format camera. It is an ideal general purpose lens for both field and studio work, and remains sharp at a broad range of reproduction ratios. Because it has an 80mm image circle at f/4, it can also be used in front of 6x6 format film backs, providing superior image quality versus any medium format SLR lens.
