Schneider Kreuznach Launches Three New Lenses - Schneider Kreuznach is launching three new micro four thirds lenses.
Schneider Kreuznach has announced three new micro four thirds lenses.
Schneider-Kreuznach opens up new perspectives for discerning photographers with high-precision, high-performance, highend optics for mirrorless system cameras. The bright fixed focal lengths provide very high resolution across the entire image area.
Using aspheres promises perfect image results. Professional technology from Schneider-Kreuznach means state of the art for Micro-Four-Thirds (MFT): designed and made in Germany.
The new lenses – a 14 mm Super-Angulon wide-angle, a 30 mm Xenon universal and a 60 mm Makro-Symmar lens – utilize all the possibilities of the MFT system. The electronic interface for all MFT camera types provides aperture control, precise autofocus and image optimization.
