Phase One Announces First

Schneider Kreuznach Blue Ring Zoom Lenses

Prime Lens Quality Featuring Full Frame Sensor Coverage,
Improved Precision, and Advanced Electronics 

 

 

Today Phase One has added two new lenses to their Blue Ring leaf shutter lineup. The Schneider Kreuznach 40-80mm LS f/4.0-5.6 Zoom lens and the Schneider Kreuznach 75-150mm LS f/4.0-5.6 Zoom lens were both popular lenses prior to the Blue Ring upgrade. Now with significant improvements, these lenses can take full advantage of, and be versatile solutions for, the XF camera system.

From: Phase One Press Release, July 18th, 2016:

Phase One, creator of the world’s finest open-platform high-end camera systems and professional imaging software, today added two new Schneider Kreuznach lenses to its comprehensive family of lenses. These two Blue Ring zoom lenses feature impressive front glass elements, with front lens diameters of 63mm and 65mm respectively, delivering edge-to-edge coverage of full frame 645 format. Used on a Phase One XF 100MP system, the lenses are able to take full advantage of the sensor’s resolution; a 100MP capture renders a 100MP image with breathtaking fidelity.

— The Schneider Kreuznach 40-80mm LS f/4.0-5.6 Zoom lens renders ultra sharp resolution on all zoom distances from wide to normal focal length;
— The Schneider Kreuznach 75-150mm LS f/4.0-5.6 Zoom lens delivers great versatility.  It’s preferred for on-location fashion shoots, with a range from normal to telephoto.

Together, these two lenses comprise an effective zoom range from 40mm to 150mm. Each lens is equipped with a zoom lock function on its barrel and is designed to maintain focus position while zooming. They each support flash synchronization up to 1/1600s.  The new built-in electronics permit individual focus calibration when used with the Phase One XF Camera System.

Designed by Schneider Kreuznach and produced by Phase One Japan, Schneider Kreuznach “Blue Ring” zoom lenses are refined with robust, aerial-grade mechanics and manufactured to meet Phase One’s highest quality assurance standards. Their enhanced precision, mechanical build, and look and feel complement the Phase One XF Camera System design.
