SONNAR CF F/4 150MM

A FOCAL LENGTH approximately twice as long as a standard lens is a good choice as a general tele lens on any camera. The 150mm Sonnar meets this requirement admirably and produces pictures of excellent sharpness and brilliance. The compact design which is characteristic of all Sonnar lenses offers excellent corner-to-corner illumination of the image format. Before the appearance of the Sonnar 180mm F4, this is a clear favourite for head and shoulder portrait lens. Stunning image quality assured. Look at the optical construction below and you will probably understand why.

Specifications:  

Max. Aperture 4 Focal Length 151.2 mm Diaphragm 4-32 Angle of View, Diag./Horizontal 30°/21° No. of Elements 5 T* Focusing Range 4 ft 6 in-infinity (1.4m) Weight 1 lb 11 1/4 oz (785g) Length 4 in (101mm) Filter Æ 60



SONNAR CF F/4 180MM  

THIS LENS IS CHARACTERISED by having one of the highest optical ratios in the entire system. It is ideally positioned in between the Sonnar 150mm and 250mm lenses. From infinity to 1.55m it offers a superior image reproduction quality. Combining this lens with the Hasselblad Converter 2XE produces a very handy 360 mm lens of very high reproduction quality. I bought this lens from Shriro when this was available. And it never disappoint with my first corporate assignment with some shots for some directors, even the art directors were impressed with the images. I has to holding back on an personal investment for a telephoto like the the 150mm, just becoz' it doesn't make sense to me to invest into, which I has the Makro-Planar 120mm as the core lens. In addition to that, it provides an extra stop in speed, why not ? though I thought 200mm would be even better (those who has a tighier studio space will curse...ha!).


Specifications:


Max. Aperture 4 Focal Length 179.4mm Diaphragm 4-32 Angle of View, Diag./Horizontal 24°/17° No. of Elements 5 T* Focusing Range 5 ft-infinity (1.55m) Weight 2 lbs 5 3/4 oz (1075g) Length 5 1/16 in (128mm) Filter Æ 60



SONNAR CF F/5.6 250MM

THE PHYSICAL LENGTH of this optically-true telephoto lens is considerably shorter than its focal length. 250 mm is an excellent focal length for outdoor work, and the compactness of this model means that it can be used without a tripod. Even at full aperture the image quality of this lens is excellent and cannot be improved any further by stopping down. Before my investment on the 180mm Planar, this is the bridging lens with the 120mm Makro Planar for closer access. Somehow, the compromised lens speed restricted greater flexibilities and those who works in studio complaint on effective working distance. At least, Hasselblad listens.


Specifications:

Max. Aperture 5.6 Focal Length 248.4mm Diaphragm 5.6-45 Angle of View, Diag./Horizontal 17°/12° No. of Elements 4 T* Focusing Range 8 ft 6 in-infinity (2.5m) Weight 2 lbs 3 1/4 oz (1000g) Length 6 3/16 in (164mm) Filter Æ 60




TELE-TESSAR CF F/5.6 350MM 

WITH A LENGTH of only 22.5 cm and a front diameter of only 9 cm, this tele lens is compact and handy in spite of its long focal length. Even at full aperture the image quality is excellent for a lens of so long a focal length. Impressive sharpness and contrast rendition make it an outstanding lens for all types of long-distance photography. I don't owned a lens like this, nothing more to discuss. But, look at the size and dimension of this lens, if the 250mm was to gave another stop faster, hell, what are going to do outdoor ?


Specifications:


Max. Aperture 5.6 Focal Length 341.2mm Diaphragm 5.6-45 Angle of View Diag./Horizontal 13°/9° No. of Elements 4 T* Focusing Range 15 ft-infinity (4.5m) Weight 2 lbs 15 1/2 oz (1350g) Length 8 15/16 in (227mm) Filter Æ 93




TELE-APOTESSAR CF F/8 500MM

AN OPTICALLY-TRUE telephoto lens with a physical length approximately 180mm or 7 inches shorter than its focal length. Special type of optical glass with exceptional properties have been used in the design of the Tele-Apotessar lens. The successful outcome has been a dramatic reduction in chromatic aberrations. Lateral colour has been decreased, with the result that high-contrast subjects do not exhibit any colour fringes on bright/dark edges. Another special feature of the Tele-Apotessar lens is its internal focusing. The lens is focused by moving the rear element group whilst the front group remains stationary. One of my friend owns this lens, I seldom see him carry with it...good for sports and wild life I guess, but the speed sucks. After all, it's not hand holdable anymore, ya ?


Specifications:


Max. Aperture 8 Focal Length 499.3mm Diaphragm 8-64 Angle of View, Diag./Horizontal 9.0°/6.4° No. of Elements 5 T* Focusing Range 16 ft 5 in-infinity (5m) Weight 3 lbs 15 3/4 oz (1810g) Length 12 15/16 in (329mm) Filter Æ 93
