Schneider / ALPA Apo Helvetar 5.6/120 mm

What a lens! It exceeded in some application the already gorgeous Apo-Digitar 120 mm. An initial batch was manufactured with the ALPA / Linhof helical mount but the rest featured the new helical mount with 25 mm of throw and the unique ALPA HPF type of distance scale for meter AND feet side by side.
