All Schneider Apo-Digitar lenses are characterized by the highest resolution, minimal distortion, and a minimized lateral chromatic aberration. They are optimally suited for current high-end digital camera backs, and have generous adjustment paths on the specialized camera.
This 210mm F-5.6 APO lens offers a relatively longer focal length, suitable for portraits (as compared to a lens designed for a film view camera). It has a Copal #0 shutter, which offers extremely precise, vibration-free exposures.
Lenses for large format digital cameras are slightly smaller in size, and shorter in focal length than lenses designed for 4x5" or 8x10" film. Digital sensor chips are usually smaller than their film format counterparts. Several 35mm Style Digital SLRs are an exception. The format conversion factor for a 4x5" lens for film to a 4x5" Digital Lens is 1.39.
