Schneider Super-Symmar XL

This series of lenses not only sets new technological standards, but it offers the photographer quite sub­stantial practical advantages. An aspherical lens sur­face makes possible, at high maximum aperture, a compact structure, which is surprising given the large angle of view (at a working aperture of up to 105°) and very low weight. That is primarily an advantage for the photographer outside the studio, but it is also in many cases advantageous in connection with the longer wide-angle focal lengths necessary for large picture sizes. A further strength of this lens is the low dependence on scale. It is unusual for a wide-angle lens, that it can be used at a reproduction ratio of up to 1:3 without a loss of image quality. In the truest sense of the word, that opens new perspec­tives, e.g., for a “dynamic” still-life photography and for model (architectural) pictures which look realis­tic. Because of its use in architectural, industrial, and still-life photography, the distortion was corrected with special care.


Because of the “natural” light loss which as a matter of physics results from the Cos4-law, even at working apertures, a centerfilter must be used, just as with the Super-Angu­lon, when, with a large picture size and/or strong adjustment, not merely the central area of the giant image circle is used.
