Users comments requested on 400/5.6 APO Tele Xenar HM : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Hi All,

I'm considering getting the new 400/5.6 APO Tele Xenar HM as an alternative to using a long lens & extension tubes on the Ebony 45S. The bellows draw I can use is 270mm standard or 360mm with a back extender. Any comments from users of this lens are appreciated. Would the standard draw be enough to use with the 400mm? Or would I need some extension, tube or back?

Thanks for any and all contributions.

Kind regards

Peter Brown

Hi Peter

Schneider states at infinity 285.1mm so your 270 is a little bit to short. I have no expirience with thad lens but you find the information on the webside of Schneider.
