Synchro-Comput shutter on 47mm/5.6 Super Angulon : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Is a synchro-compur shutter (mounted through a Schneider 47/5.6 SA (non-XL)) the same size as a copal 0? If I do not need the lens to cover 4x5 (just 6x9) is there any optical or quality difference between the non XL and XL version of this lens?

Schneider says shutter size 00 for this lens. They also say the optical construction is different; I don't know whether you will see the difference.

The two lenses have a different constuction which is tpical of the newer XL lenses , they cover a larger area regards
