Schneider 120mm f/5.6 overview

  • 1Description

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.

Compact, extremely sharp slightly wide lens for the 6x9 and 4x5 formats
Increased coverage (to 75°) for the classic 6-element, 4-group optical design
Bright ideal working aperture range of f/11-22 for shorter exposures and sharper outdoor images
Weighs just 7.4 oz (210g) and small enough to fit within many field cameras
Maximum image circle of 189mm allows ±13mm of rise/fall/shift (in both vertical/horizontal composition) for 4x5 format and ±43mm for 6x9
Accepts 52mm filters
Standard-style Copal #0 shutter with calibrated aperture scale and maximum 1/500th speed
