Few months ago Schneider-Kreuznach announced that they will start producing lenses for mirrorless cameras. Today the company revealed three new lenses for Micro Four Thirds system cameras:
- Super-Angulon 14 mm/2.0 wide-angle lens (10 lens elements with 4 aspherical surfaces, focusing range from 1:10 to ∞)
- Xenon 30 mm/1.4 universal lens (7 lens elements with 1 aspherical surface, focusing range from 1:10 to ∞)
- Makro-Symmar 60 mm/2.4 wide-aperture macro lens (8 lens elements, focusing range from 1:2 to ∞).
Photokina 2012: For the first time Schneider-Kreuznach presents lenses for Micro Four Thirds system cameras
BAD KREUZNACH, 17 September 2012
Schneider-Kreuznach presents its new range of lenses for mirrorless system cameras of the Micro Four Thirds standard at this year’s photokina in Cologne. The first lens in the series, a 14 mm wide-angle lens, will be available on the market by the third quarter of 2013.
In the fourth quarter of 2013, it will be followed by a 30 mm universal lens and a 60 mm macro version. “We are delighted at the high level of interest in our involvement in MFT,” said Harald Barth, head of the Photo Imaging division at Schneider-Kreuznach.
The new series offers ambitious users of mirrorless system cameras a choice of high-precision and powerful high-end lenses “Made in Germany”. The lenses feature a high luminous intensity and a very high resolution across the entire image. Using aspheres promises perfect image results without any image correction by the camera. The compact lenses meet the same technical standards as lenses for full frame cameras manufactured in Bad Kreuznach.
The electronic interface between lens and camera provides aperture control, precise autofocus and image optimization. The high-quality aluminum housing, robust mechanics and hydrophobic coating of the outer lenses strongly protects against dust and water splashes. The new optical design with special high-refractive lens
elements is fully optimized for the specific requirements of mirrorless system cameras.
