The Rodenstock 45mm f/4.5 Apo-Sironar Digital Lens is a wide angle large format lens specifically designed for use with digital backs, which require a smaller image circle with extreme resolution, color correction, and maximum performance at a large aperture. This lens is recommended for use with backs having a maximum image area of 72 x 96mm, capturing a view similar to that of a 16mm lens upon a 35mm format camera

The included Rollei Electronic #0 Shutter delivers precision exposure control with speeds ranging from 1/500 - 30 sec, plus B, and allows f/stop adjustments in as little as 1/10 increments. Aperture and shutter speed are controlled via a Rollei Lens Control unit (purchased separately.

In many cases, digital photography is superior to conventional photography if the desired end product is a printed image. To achieve this ideal, however, a much higher demand is made upon the image reproduction quality of the lens. This is because of a digital image chip's smaller area, which means finer details in a scene are squeezed into a smaller image recording area, as well as their sensitivity to color fringes.

But Rodenstock's digital-specific lenses such as this Apo-Sironar digital provide image quality which allows the maximum capacity of a digital back to be realized. The lens utilizes every technological possibility to get as close as possible to the absolute limits of diffraction-determined resolution, even accounting for the properties and thickness of a CCD's protective glass. With the Apo-Sironar digital, you can use digital backs with a pixel pitch as small as 5µ.

This lens is recommended for use at apertures of f/8-11; you should primarily use your camera's movements to control the depth of field.

question

what kind of recessed board i need if using this lens on a sinar P3?
Asked by: fabio G.
I contacted Sinar with your inquiry, and they state that the lens has to be mounted correctly to the lens board and it is not only a lens board. They did not list a specific lens board for your stated request. They state that they offer the service in Switzerland, and they recommend you to send your lens to one of the partners in the US and they will send it to Switzerland for conversion. A list of Sinar's resellers in the United States that may assist you with the above inquiry are listed at the link included below.http://sinar.swiss/en-resellers/#!/1

No, that does not come with a lens board. You will need a lens board for a Copal#0 shutter that works with your camera.
