Does anyone have any experience/examples of these lenses?

There seems to be very little information with regards to these, which I suppose is to be expected given their price.

I don't have experience myself with this lens, but I own three Schneider lenses for my large format cameras. Schneider is en par with Zeiss as one of the most outstanding lensmakers in the world -- they're just better known in the large format and medium format worlds. I've heard nothing but outstanding things about this PC lens.

I was able to mess around with a 28mm f/2.8 Angulon a little bit today, and it seemed to be built very nicely. Definitely on par with every Zeiss lens I've ever held. I really loved the little knob for adjusting the shift, as it's sprung the same way that one of those old door stoppers is. Basically you can bend it, and upon release it will snap back to it's original orientation. It also comes with a really nice case.

There's a comparison between several TS lenses including the Schneider 28/2.8 PC on Lloyd Chambers' DAP site. The lenses were tested on a D2X (that's a 2/3 frame because the test predates ff cameras.) Even on a crop-frame, It doesn't seem to be particularly sharp, but it's better - or at least "less worse"- than the Nikkors.


Several cameras and more glass than I will admit to.

I tried to find the article but you need a username / password to access it...


i'd really like to try out tilt shift and wonder how the schneider PC-super-angular 28mm compares to the Canon 24mm TS-e II ... anyone have any experience with either or both?
