Full Frame 28mm Tilt-Shift Lens from Schneider-Kreuznach
See it at PhotoPlus Expo Booth #241
Schneider Optics introduces a new tilt-shift prime made especially to cover the full-frame of DSLR cameras. With a wide 28mm focal length, the Schneider-Kreuznach PC-TS Super-Angulon 4.5 / 28 HM Aspheric provides an image circle of 72mm making it ideal for landscape, architectural and industrial photography.
Allowing 12mm of lateral shift, 8 degrees of tilt angle and 360 degrees rotation, this new optic provides outstanding perspective correction without compromise. Advanced mechanics allows the movements to operate independently, without distortion or degradation of image quality and resolution. This accommodates even extreme displacement, up to the very edge of the coverage.
Designed to work in combination with the latest camera models, the lens comes in Nikon or Canon mount or may be special ordered for Sony Alpha or Pentax. It comes complete with an integrated lens hood to block stray light and reflections and offers compatibility with standard filters. The brand also offers PC-TS lenses in 50mm f/2.8 and 90mm f/4.5 for DSLRs and and 120mm f/5.6 for the Mamiya 645.
The Schneider-Kreuznach PC-TS Super-Angulon 4.5 / 28 HM Aspheric has an MSRP of $8,288 and is available now from Schneider Optics or from Schneider-Kreuznach dealers worldwide.
