Press release:


Schneider-Kreuznach presents newly designed lenses for full-frame single-lens reflex cameras at photokina 2014, the leading trade show for photography. They are the first in a new series of Schneider-Kreuznach DSLR lenses with an electronic connection to the camera.

Three lenses will be presented at the Schneider booth:
The Xenon 1.6/35 mm and Xenon 1.4/50 mm lenses are equipped with an electronic interface to the camera and a mechanical automatic iris for Nikon cameras. The Macro Symmar on display with an 85 mm focal length and a maximum aperture of 2.4 has a motorized iris and an electronic interface for the Canon EOS system. The automatic aperture function is driven exclusively by the camera.

All lenses will be available for Canon EOS and Nikon-F systems.

The lenses have been developed to meet the increasingly stringent requirements in combination with a continuous decrease in pixel size. “The lenses are produced in Bad Kreuznach for sophisticated users. They stand out in particular with their high image quality,” says Frithjof Spangenberg, product manager for photo imaging at Schneider-Kreuznach.

Schneider-Kreuznach lenses for Micro Four Thirds
Schneider Kreuznach is still planning to release their new Micro Four Thirds lenses that were announced two years ago (the lenses were rumored to be released at Photikina). The price will be over 1000 Euros.
