In the past I’ve had excellent results with all kinds of industrial lenses so I was glad to see this set of lenses arrive.
The line-up of new lenses includes:
Rodenstock Ysaron 1:4 f=25
Rodenstock Rogonar-S 1:8 f=35
Rodenstock Rodagon 1:5.6 f=43
Rodenstock Rogonar-S 1:3.5 f=50
Rodenstock Rogonar-S 1:8 f=57
Rodenstock Rodagon 1:8 f=60
(The APO-Rodagon in the above image is for scale)
Don’t let the conservative apertures of the lenses fool you. In almost all cases these have an aperture disk that is easy to access and remove. Also in my experience the lenses image quality is acceptable wide open, in some cases the image quality can be excellent with the disk removed.
So far with an initial test the Rogonar-S 1:3.5 f=50 image quality looks impressive, I’m working on a full test report now.
