If the conversation comes to the HR ALPAGON 40mm, then the term “workhorse” usually comes up very soon – and quite rightly so, because for many professional photographers, the 40mm is the standard solution for their ALPA. If you wanted to mark it as a “bread and butter” lens, you would be wrong, however: With its brilliant performance and its image circle of 90mm, it plays in the same league as the legendary HR ALPAGON 32mm, but possesses a slightly narrower angle, same light intensity, and is significantly smaller/lighter.
The focal length equivalent (to 35mm format cameras) is 26mm (for 54mm x 40mm sensors ) and 32mm (for 44mm x 33mm sensors).
The HR ALPAGON 40mm can be found particularly often together with an HR ALPAGON 70mm in a photo backpack, bag or case. It is not for nothing that many newcomers to the ALPA system opt for this combination, not only for the focal length range but also for the optical characteristics of the two optics perfectly harmonized.
Digital backs with electronic shutter (currently Rolling Shutter for Phase One IQ 3/4, Hasselblad CFV/907) are becoming increasingly available. The new Rodenstock aperture unit – with its almost round, 9-piece aperture pattern – optimally supports this shutter type. Additionally, aperture mount lens versions in short barrel can also be used on the ALPA 12 FPS with its built-in focal-plane shutter.
