Rodenstock / ALPA HR Alpagon 5.6/70 mm

Kind of a "normal" lens but definitively not ordinary. Use it single-shot as a rock-solid standard angle lens with plenty of image circle for shifting. Or use this image circle for stitching and get new perspectives.

HR ALPAGON 70 mm - the entry into the ALPA system

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 6x9 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!
