inforamtion about rodenstock lens : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

hi there -

i was wondering if anyone has happened upon a website that lists technical information about older rodenstock lenses - like their 7 element plasmat type lens. i went to the company website, thinking that it might have that sort of stuff on it, but struck-out.

thanks in advance!! - john

There's lots of information on this site regarding various lenses, including Rodenstocks. See the home page under lenses. There is no Rodenstock webpage like the one that Schneider has provided. Amazing, but true.

A plasmat is a six element lens. To what lens were you referring? Do you know the name?

i have searched the pages here and not really come up with the information i was looking for - oh well - ... i gotta hand it to schneider, their web page is great!

i've been looking for mtf's, rel. illumination, distortion charts - the kind of info rodenstock has on its current lines. all i've found are image circles and filter sizes.
