Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The Schneider Optics 38mm f/5.6 Super-Angulon XL Lens is a long-time professional's favorite for use as a super wide angle lens for the 6x9 and 6x12 formats. It provides an angle of view on 6x9 which is similar to a 16mm lens in the 35mm format, and is primarily used to capture the most expansive, tight interior scenes as well as buildings tightly surrounded by other structures. The Super-Angulon XL lenses have extremely high correction of distortion, which is critical in architectural photography. Beyond the coverage, the lens' large f/5.6 maximum aperture helps to ease the difficulty of focusing the camera in poor light.
The 38mm Super-Angulon XL's 120° angle of coverage permits some shifting on the 6x9 format, which is particularly beneficial when capturing a building from ground level. It uses 72mm EW filters, and for critical work with transparency film it is strongly recommended to use their dedicated #2a center filter.
