Schneider Super Angulon/Center Filtergreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
I am thinking of buying a Schneider Super Angulon for my newly acquired 8X10. The lens is single coated I don't think that will be a problem. However it does not come with a center filter. My concern is that with this lens it may have a less than suttle impact on the quality of my images. Can a person with some personal experience with this lens share some insight on this topic.

Excuse the subtle spelling error above. Oh yes the lens in question is the 165mm f8 hope thats more helpful.

I use several of Schneider ND center filters on their lenses, and although they cost as much as most lenses, they perform wonderfully, be sure to buy the right one, and I find that the recommended stops offered by the directions have been right on.. 1.33 stops to 2.0 for the 90mm. In 8x10, the ND filters I consider mandatory... in 4x5, if I use movements, they are a must!

The SA 165mm is a mighty fine lens.
You didn't mention concern for weight and size. If they are importantyou might want to consider the Schneider 150mm XL.
