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.
