With the advent of the CMOS digital backs like the Phase One IQ150/250, Credo 50 and Hasselblad CFV-50C the need for a small and compact universal wide angle lens revived. Therefore ALPA introduces the Rodenstock ALPA HR Alpar 4.0/35 mm. On a 33x44 mm sensor this focal length is comparable to the popular 28 mm focal length in 24x36 and allows some 8 - 10 mm of shift. With a sensor of 40x54 mm it transforms into a wide 22 mm in 35 mm terms with still a tad of movements. Especially with the beautifully soft release of the all new ALPA Sync Release Mk II this makes a great reportage lens on the ALPA 12 TC/STC.A dedicated lens shade is available seperately. This optimized lens shade is a result of innovative additive manufacturing.The lens is available with immediate effect.Product Page: [/en/article/hr-alpar-4-035-mm-lb|Rodenstock HR Alpar 4.0/35 mm, LB]Related products: [/en/article/sync-release-mk-ii|ALPA Sync Release Mk II]
