Description
Rodenstock know that only a first class enlarging lens guarantees developing success. Their German engineers combine the latest in computer design with superior mechanical craftsmanship. No need to look at technical curves - you can see the Rodenstock difference in every picture. They will repay you with higher resolution, colour fidelity, outstanding field flatness, contrast, and uniform illumination.

The lens type Rodagon with brilliant reproduction over the whole scale range of conventional enlargers, has become the universal workhorse of both demanding amateurs and professionals in practical use.

The 6 element design guarantees the resolution of the finest details while maintaining a uniformly high contrast from the picture centre to the edges. As the lens is nearly independent with regard to scale, top quality is ensured from mini-prints right up to high enlargements.

The recommended working aperture is reached by stopping down by only 2 stops.

The Rodagon already meets the high demands of processing photography. A number of photographers use the models with shorter focal lengths in conjunction with suitable adaptors together with reflex camers for high quality photos in extrme close-ups.

All Rodagon lenses are equipped with click-stop diaphragms which can be disabled for focal lengths from 28 mm to 135 mm and all lenses are provided with a pre-set aperture.

Manufacturer’s Description
The lens type Rodagon, with brilliant reproduction over the whole scale range of conventional enlargers, has become the universal workhorse of both demanding amateurs and professionals in practical use. The models with focal lengths up to 135 mm have proven to be excellent macro lenses for SLR cameras and to be high-resolution taking lenses for CCD cameras in combination with the Rodenstock focusing device Modular-Focus. The Rodagon lens is superior to most of the conventional macro lenses in resolution power and contrast.

The 6 element design guarantees the resolution of the finest details while maintaining a uniformly high contrast from the image center to the the edges. As the lens is nearly independent with regard to magnification scale, top quality is ensured from mini-prints right up to high enlargements. The recommended working aperture is reached by stopping down by only 2 stops from open aperture.

All Rodagon lenses are equipped with an illuminated f-stop display, a practical pre-set aperture and a click-stop diaphragm which can be switched to stepless control (expect for the 180 mm lens). As an alternative, the Rodagon 28 mm is available in a smaller barrel with a 32.5 mm thread mount.
