- M39-Mount Enlarging Lens
- Maximum Film Format: 24 x 36mm
- Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/16
- Apochromatically Corrected
An ideal enlarging lens for film formats up to 24 x 36mm, the Apo-Rodagon-N 50mm f/2.8 from Rodenstock is well-suited to general black & white and color enlarging applications, and can also be used as a high-resolution macro taking lens for film and digital cameras. Using an eight-element optical design, this apochromatically corrected lens fully eliminates color fringing and spherical aberrations to benefit both color and monochrome reproductions. Its recommended working aperture is f/4-5.6, and its recommended scale range of 2x to 20x benefits making mini enlargements up to mural-sized prints. Additionally, for ease of use, the lens is fitted with an illuminated f/stop scale, a convenient preset aperture setting, and a click-stop diaphragm that can be de-clicked depending on preference.
