Schneider Apo Symmar 100mm for 6X12? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread


I have just bought a Schneider Apo Symmar 100mm f/5,6 for using with 6X9 roll film holder.

I also have a 6X12 roll film holder: anybody has experience on this combination? The circle of coverage says that the lens covers 6X12, but what are the facts in real use?

Thank you very much.

The specs that Schneider gives for their lenses tends to err on the side of caution and the coverage is actually slightly greater than the figures. With 6x9 there is plenty of movement and I would imagine that you should not have any real trouble with 6x12.
