Rodenstock / ALPA AAA Apo-Alpar 4.5/35 mmm

The AAA Alpar 35 used to be the widest medium/large format lens from Rodenstock covering the ALPA 6x9 with shift reserve. It was available in long-barrel and was custom made for ALPA by Rodenstock. Original lenses feature the silver color lens ring on the front tube.

ALPA Product History -  Lenses

With the advent of digital photography, Schneider Kreuznach, Rodenstock, and, earlier, Nikon and Fujifilm have reduced or altogether discontinued the production of lenses for analog/film photography. Fujifilm, Nikon, and Schneider Kreuznach have now wholly exited this product segment.

Lenses that have been wholly or temporarily discontinued can often still be serviced and repaired. However, this depends on the status of the spare parts at the optics manufacturer.

You are welcome to contact us by e-mail or form and ask if a repair or conversion to ALPA-Mount is possible. Please note that ALPA only includes lens types in ALPA-Mount if this lens type was ever part of the ALPA product range. Please also note that the central shutters of type Copal 0 have been discontinued and are no longer freely available. Provided Copal shutters are measured and checked for general suitability and plan-parallelism at the optical manufacturer for a fee.
