The Schneider 120mm f/5.6 Apo-Symmar L Lens is a standard, all-purpose large format lens which gives the highest image reproduction quality possible in a broad range of applications. This lens is for use with 6x9 cameras as well as more limited use upon 4x5 cameras.
The 75° angle of coverage permits generous shifts on the 6x9 format, and even allows a bit of shift with 4x5. Despite the broad coverage, it is still small enough to permit its use upon smaller field cameras. In many cases, this lens will fit inside a field camera when the camera is folded away.
The 120mm Apo-Symmar L uses 52mm filters and weighs just 7.4 ounces. It is an ideal everyday lens for users of large format cameras designed around roll film.
