Phase One XT Rodenstock Lens Range
XT – HR Digaron-W 50mm f/4
The XT – Rodenstock HR Digaron-W 50mm f/4 is a balance of a “normal” focal length perspective and wide-angle aesthetic. As a result, it provides a close equivalent to human vision. Moreover, with a large image circle and apochromatic design, the lens is ideal for all scenarios. It is a “do it all” lens solution for the XT camera system.
The 50mm lens offers an 84° angle of view and an aperture range of f/4–22. It also employs an ultrafine manual focus system and a 67mm filter thread.
Furthermore, the lens’s applications include architectural and landscape stitching, due to its 90mm image circle. What’s more, its aprochromatic design makes it an option for high-contrast interior and architecture photography.
