The Schneider 180mm f/5.6 Apo-Symmar L Lens is a slightly-long, 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 4x5 cameras or 5x7 cameras.
The 75° angle of coverage permits generous shifts on the 4x5 format, which is very useful in architecture photography.
The 180mm Apo-Symmar L uses 72mm filters and is an ideal everyday lens for users of 4x5 cameras who prefer a somewhat longer focal length lens as their standard viewer.
