Rodenstock Rodagon enlarging lenses, with brilliant reproduction over the whole scale
range of conventional enlargers, has become the universal workhorse of
both demanding amateurs and professionals in practical use. The models
with focal lengths up to 135 mm have proven to be excellent macro
lenses for SLR cameras and to be high-resolution taking lenses for CCD
cameras in combination with the Rodenstock focusing device
Modular-Focus. The Rodagon lens is superior to most of the conventional
macro lenses in resolution power and contrast.
The 6 element design guarantees the resolution of the finest details
while maintaining a uniformly high contrast from the image center to
the the edges. As the lens is nearly independent with regard to
magnification scale, top quality is ensured from mini-prints right up
to high enlargements. The recommended working aperture is reached by
stopping down by only 2 stops from open aperture.
All Rodagon lenses (50mm - 135mm) are equipped with an illuminated f-stop display, a
practical pre-set aperture and a click-stop diaphragm which can be
switched to stepless control.
Use 135mm lens for enlarging 4x5 inch negatives.
