Rodenstock / ALPA HR Alpagon 6.5/138 mm float

A product type describes one or several products sharing the same primary base product. Like all HR ALPAGON 32 mm lenses: The same elemental lens but various lens mounts and with different shutter types or aperture mounts. Such a product type may also be the versions of an ALPA camera or a 3rd party product.
HR ALPAGON 138 mm - todays pinnacle of medium/large format lens design

This lens offers almost unlimited resolution and, thanks to the automatically adjusted floating element, can convince with its consistently high imaging performance and uniformity.
Scope of delivery: The multifunctional adapter SB 51 and a sun shade are included.

The Rodenstock / ALPA HR ALPAGON 6.5/138 mm Float is an exceptional sharp long focal length lens for adjustable technical cameras intended for a wide distance range from infinity up to an image scale 1:5 (β' = -0,2).The optical design with eleven lens elements in ten groups is very complex fora prime lens. It has the highest possible resolving power extremely close to the diffraction limit. This is not only achieved across the entire field of the largest digital sensors – but also to the edge of the large 110mm image circle to allow for lens shifts and tilts. The rotation of the focusing ring automatically controls the floating elements group and all aberrations are therefore minimized throughout the whole focusing range. Even with extreme camera movements (shift and tilt) this lens provides an unprecedented sharpness to the corners as proven by the MTF curves given up to 80 lp/mm. It provides negligible distortion (almost always below 1‰)and a total suppression of the chromatic aberration for perfect freedom from color fringing.

The image circle of the HR ALPAGON 138 mm has a constant diameter of 110 mm throughout its entire image scale range. For professional technical cameras, even with the largest sensor formats, this gives ample clearance for parallel shifts for perspective corrections (avoiding or reducing converging vertical lines). This also allows swing and tilt for extended depth of field without excessive stopping down of the aperture according to the Scheimpflug rule.

The broad focusing ring of the helical mount allows sensitive and precise focusing and automatically controls the adjustment of the  floating elements group mentioned above.
