The lenses have their own styles, especially those made in Germany are very popular. The classic Voigtländer lens has stunning bokeh and is especially suitable for portraits. Zeiss lenses have strong and natural colors. Leica lenses capture elegant tones in low light. Schneider’s strong color, artistic sense under dark corners. Rodenstock has a very high resolution and is suitable for detailed descriptions. The slightly warm tone is also unique.
Rodenstock is a well-known German manufacturer of large format lenses. Rodenstock lenses have high resolution, clear colors, and good at portraying details. They are very popular in the field of commercial advertising. From the 1950s to the early 1960s, they also produced some camera lenses for 35mm SLR cameras and Leica rangefinder cameras.
Rodenstock produced 2 million lenses from 1954 to 1961, but most of the lenses were fixed to the body, such as Kodak Redina cameras. The number of interchangeable lenses produced is relatively small. The Leica L39 mount lens has only one Rodenstock-Heligon 35mm f / 2.8, and the number is not large.
At that time, the German economy was recovering, and Leica cameras were in short supply. At that time, Leica had customized a number of lenses with some third-party manufacturers, including Schneider and Rohde Star. At that time, Rodenstock expanded its production sites in Munich and Reagan.
This 35mm lens has 6 elements in 4 groups, copper chrome plating, single coating, 10 aperture blades, f / 2.8 aperture.
Heligon series appeared on 120 and 135 format cameras, including Heligon 90 / 3.2 of Linhof 69, etc., Rodenstock Retina Heligon 1.9 / 50mm of DKL mount, are the top level in its class. It’s a pity that which camera systems are too unpopular today, the shape is too Mars, and the lens style is also strange. Only this Rodenstock-Heligon 35mm f / 2.8 has a beautiful appearance and superior imaging quality.
The Rodenstock lens is particularly good at portraying details. This Rodenstock-Heligon 35mm f / 2.8 inherits the Rodenstock lens style. It is clear and delicate, with bright and gaudy colors, large dynamic range, and slightly warm.
It is said that the lenses with the red A engraved on the Luo Dunsi lenses are high-end lenses, which have stable control of highlights and more vivid colors.
Because the depth of field of this lens is very shallow, blind shooting with full aperture is quite challenging. But because it is a progressive focus, even if it is out of focus, it has a three-dimensional effect.
Rodens’ f / 2.8 aperture is equivalent to out-of-focus at Leica f / 2 aperture. Out-of-focus is soft, smooth and natural. This also makes its price not cheap.
