Leaf Shutter Lenses

The XF camera system is built using full-frame medium format sensors 2.5 times larger than the ones found in high-end DSLRs. Sensors this large deliver a powerful combination of the highest possible resolution together with large, high dynamic range pixels and exceptional wide angular response. The XF camera system is quite literally the best of all worlds when it comes to digital image quality.

The Leaf Shutter lenses are designed together with world-renowned medium format manufacturer, PhaseOne. Building on decades of experience in high-resolution optics and precision manufacturing, the Leaf Shutter lenses are some of the sharpest lenses in the world, built for todays systems as well as the future. With an integrated Leaf Shutter, the range of Schneider-Kreuznach lenses delivers industry leading flash synchronization speed of up to 1/1600 th of a second.

Schneider-Kreuznach lenses are designed to resolve well beyond the high-resolution medium format sensors of the PhaseOne XF camera system. Using large sensors, large pixels and optics prepared to scale, the Schneider Kreuznach leaf shutter range is already capable of going beyond 100 MP resolution.  

In addition to our range of fixed-focal length prime lenses, the XF camera system is compatible with both focal plane and Schneider-Kreuznach Leaf Shutter zoom lenses, delivering optical performance that rivals equivalent focal length primes. For those photographers that require tilt or shift lens movement, the Schneider-Kreuznach TS is a go-to choice. 



Where to buy?

The lenses for the PhaseOne XF camera system are sold exclusively through the company PhaseOne.
