phase one35 m non LS

I do have the phase one 35 mm f3,5 for many (5 or 6) years now, and some heavy trouble with purple fringe which can´t be reduced with the tools in C1.
Now I´ve the new 35 mm LS for rent, which ist the best lens I´ve ever seen.
Most of the time i`m doing editorial , street photography and handheld stuff wide open, at f 3,5, and prints up to 70x100 cm. After walking around for two days i wonder if Phase one will invest in some of my workout hours.
Man, its so heavy, more or less 1 kg heavier than the old one.

So, any chance to get a new 35 mm non LS with better coating, means was there an evolution between the first and the last once or are they more or less the same ?

thanks joerg

Good glass is heavy. :-)
The shutter it self only weighs a fraction of the total lens so making one with out a shutter would unfortunately not make much sense as it would affect the lens marginally.

Hey Ulf,

thanks for the replie.

I mean, do you still sell the non LS 35 mm, and are the actual lenses better than the once you sold 8 years ago?

Yes the old 35mm Phase One lens is still on sales.
While the New Schneider 35mm is one of the best lenses (and also expensive) the old 35mm is one of the cheapest however the quality is also reflecting this.

I think there is no lens in our current offering which have a bigger gap in quality as the new and the old 35mm.
If you are in the market for the old version which is of course much smaller and lighter then try it before buying it.
It is "decent" with for example a 30/40mp sensor which have crop factor.
But I would never recommend it for someone using a full frame sensor.
The new Schneider however is stunning in this regard.
