Coming for review:
- Schneider PC-TS Super-Angulon 28mm f/4.5 HM Aspheric (to be tested on Nikon D810, available for Nikon, Canon, Sony A, Pentax K).
- Sony Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS (to be tested on Sony A7R).
The 28/4.5 PC-TS Super-Angulon HM Aspheric
Order your Schneider 28mm f/4.5 at B&H photo, which is providing a sample for testing.
The Schneider PC-TS Super-Angulon 28mm f/4.5 HM Aspheric Lens is very much a specialty lens, with a 28mm focal length not available from Canon and Nikon. It supplants its predecessor on bulk and price, the 28mm f/2.8 PC-Super-Angulon, which was shift only (no tilt), and was also sold by Leica for the R system.
Performance of the Schneider PC-TS Super-Angulon 28mm f/4.5 HM remains to be seen in field use, but generally speaking, the “HM” designation bodes well (“High Modulation”), and the aspheric designation adds to that expectation.
