Schneider 58mm f/5.6 overview

  • 1Description

The Schneider 58mm f/5.6 Super-Angulon XL Lens is a long-time professional's favorite for use as a super wide angle lens for the 4x5 format. It provides an angle of view on 4x5 which is similar to a 16mm lens in the 35mm format, and is primarily used to capture expansive interiors or buildings which are tightly surrounded with other structures. The Super-Angulon XL lenses have extremely high correction of distortion, which is critical in architectural photography. Beyond the coverage, the lens' large f/5.6 maximum aperture helps to ease the difficulty of focusing the camera in poor light.

The 58mm Super-Angulon XL's 110° angle of coverage permits some shifting on the 4x5 format, which is particularly beneficial when capturing a building from ground level. It uses 67mm EW filters, and for critical work with transparency film it is strongly recommended to use their dedicated #3b center filter.
