Schneider-Kreuznach announced newly designed lenses for full-frame DSLR cameras at photokina 2014.
They are the first in a new series of Schneider-Kreuznach DSLR lenses with an electronic connection to the camera.
Three lenses will be presented.
The Xenon 1.6/35 mm and Xenon 1.4/50 mm lenses are equipped with an electronic interface to the camera and a mechanical automatic iris for Nikon cameras. The Macro Symmar on display with an 85 mm focal length and a maximum aperture of 2.4 has a motorized iris and an electronic interface for the Canon EOS system. The automatic aperture function is driven exclusively by the camera.
All lenses will be available for Canon EOS and Nikon-F systems.
The lenses have been developed to meet the increasingly stringent requirements in combination with a continuous decrease in pixel size. “The lenses are produced in Bad Kreuznach for sophisticated users.
They stand out in particular with their high image quality,” says Frithjof Spangenberg, product manager for photo imaging at Schneider-Kreuznach.
