Default SCHNEIDER (APO) MACRO VARON f4.5 85mm CAS takes a walk

Now this is a very different beast, made to beat even the most modern sensors,
it is a pure Schneider understatement, that they would not even include "APO"
it its name and oh yeah, it certainly is. Further it has a unique feature, adjustable
aberration control CAS, adjustable for the whole covered range this lens is designed
for, the largest on the market: 0.5 ... 2x. And I took the freedom to use it on a
walk and from infinity to close up I tried it out....

And please DO NOT LOOK UP ITS LIST PRICE, I don't want to be held accountable
for having caused heart attacks or such... it is a mere $4.500, but I was lucky ;-)

All shot at f4.5 with CAS setting to lowest magnification:

A beautiful set!

Please add the sienna hues especially the cone with red seeds of the magnolia tree!

These colors are amongst the most interesting to me as they give me a sense of security, like a solid oak table I bought 50 years ago and served my family and now the grandchildren eating and on weekends cutting newspaper for a paper mache mask.

Sienna is also the color of the earth in and around Florence to Sienna and their sunsets have an especially rich golden hue. Thatís why I asked for these pictures of yours hidden, in plain sight amongst your flowers!

Yes indeed, I know those colors well from Tusany soils and also from the Teide volcano caldera at Tenerife. Beautiful rich colors!

Very nice. Amazing what backlighting can do for flowers and other flora subjects.

This is a most extraordinary lens. Did you mount your Digital on the back of a LF camera?









What image circle does this brilliant lens cover?
