The Linhof Technorama Apo-Symmar L 180mm f/5.6 Lens Unit is a normal-length lens, providing a 50.6° angle of view, which is specifically designed for use with the Linhof 617s III Panoramic Camera. The lens is housed within a dedicated lens unit that allows for simple attachment to the 617s III camera body and also incorporates a range of functional elements that pair well with the handheld design of the system. A helical focusing mount is integrated into the lens unit to allow for one-handed, bellows-free, focusing as close as 7.2'. The lens is set in a standard Copal #1 shutter for shutter speeds between 1/400 to 1 sec, as well as B and T settings, and has an attached cable release with soft pressure shutter release. The shutter is uncoupled from the film winding mechanism and must be cocked prior to each exposure.

When in use, a corresponding accessory viewfinder can be used for precise image composition and the lens' distance scales are demarcated in imperial and metric measurements for focusing control.

    Comments about Linhof Technorama Apo-Symmar L 180mm f/5.6 Lens Unit:

    I use this 180mm to replace the 72mm I broke. The 180mm is the most stable of the five lenses they make, and, I purchased this time with the five year separate warranty. (The 180mm viewfinder was on top of all that.) There is nothing not great about this lens, I am sure, if it is anything like the 72mm. And if it isn't who cares? Finally, this lens is much less susceptible to distortion up close on the ends than the 180-mm and the 180 mm needs no special neutral density filter as a matter of course. My mistake, what is not great about the lens is that the fastest shutter speed is 1/400 sec, as for the other lenses itis 1/500 of a second. I wanted very much the 250mm lens, but that kind of bread was over the top for me. "Give me the whole set!" I already owned a body, the one I bought with the 72mm lens in 1998.
