These characteristics give the Super-Angulon XL an outstanding position in ultra-wide-angle photography, and it is the most successful addition to a range of already high-quality lenses.
The second series of the Super-Angulon f/5.6 has a more complex optical system than the f/8 series. Its 8-element, 4-component, almost symmetrical design provides a high-speed version of the Super-Angulon that will surpass the requirements of the most demanding professional. Along with an angle of view of 105 degrees at f/22 this lens offers a full stop extra which may be decisive for photographing under critical lighting conditions.
The Super-Angulon f/8 series is an almost symmetrical, 6-element, 4-component design. In conjunction with the use of carefully selected optical glass and the latest design techniques, this series guarantees outstanding performance that will fully satisfy the demanding requirements of modern photography.
Excellent contrast and resolving power are proven characteristics of these lenses. Another feature of the Super-Angulon is its unusually wide angle of view of 100 degrees when stopped down.
For each Super-Angulon, special Center-Filters are available, partial compensation for the natural brightness decrease of the wide-angle lenses towards the edge.
