Zeiss Softar 1 Filter Equivaants for Schneider lenses

Postby support-peartreephoto.com » Tue Dec 17, 2013 2:05 pm

Hi all,

We have a client who is currently shooting with a Leaf back on a Hasselblad V. He also uses the Zeiss Softar 1 filter, which is no longer available. He is anxious to move over to the DF platform but wants the same effect available on the Schneider lenses. He insists that it is a screw-in glass filter rather than a gel/holder solution.

Fortunately all the lenses he is proposing to order have the same 72mm screw filter mount. Can anyone recommend a filter that will offer him the same or similar, bearing in mind the difference in quality and coatings between the two lens manufacturers ? As a Leaf user he obviously expects the very highest quality.

Thanks in advance for any help or recommendations

With the Phase One Camera and the HB Adaptor he could simply mount the same V lenses with the same filter.
Beyond that there is likely step ring to go from one size to the other.

Hi Drew,

The reason we are trying to convert this customer is because he has decided he is of an age where auto focus would be very useful, so this option is not really appealing to him, if he has to use his current lens/filter, why move platform?
I have ordered a Hoya pro version and will test with that as soon as I receive.

Cheers
