ALPA Rodenstock 70mm f/5.6 HR Alpagon, SB17 in Aperture Unit
Rodenstock / ALPA HR Alpagon 5.6/70mm, SB17, in Aperture Unit, custom made for ALPA by Rodenstock.
Given its compactness, one could easily underestimate the HR ALPAGON 70mm, but this impression is entirely deceptive: With its vast 100mm image circle it offers extreme reserves for the perspective and sharpness compensation (tilt and shift) and also the optical performance is entirely convincing. Since its focal length almost matches the image diagonal of the large medium format (40x54mm sensor), it corresponds to the usual definition of a standard lens and is characterized by an image that corresponds particularly well to human perception. Thus, the ALPAGON 70mm HR is ideally suited as an introduction to the ALPA system, especially since it makes an excellent figure on analog film: It also covers 6×9 film and then corresponds approximately to a classic 35mm in 35mm format.
Its favorable price-performance ratio makes the HR ALPAGON 70mm a real insider tip in our portfolio!
Scope of delivery: The product images are sample images and often show the lens with an ALPA HPF ring (High Precision Focusing). This HPF ring is not included in the scope of delivery of the lens. However, ALPA recommends the use of an HPF ring for optimum handling.
Lens tube: This is the standard version in Short Barrel. Versions in Long Barrel or Short Barrel FPS available on special order.
Digital backs with electronic shutter (currently Rolling Shutter for Phase One IQ 3/4) are becoming increasingly available. The new Rodenstock aperture unit – with its almost round, 9-piece aperture pattern – optimally supports this shutter type. Besides, lens versions in short barrel can also be used on the ALPA 12 FPS with its built-in focal-plane shutter.
