Actual Lens Range ALPA
Currently, all our medium format lenses are manufactured by Qioptiq/Rodenstock. Historically, ALPA lenses have also been manufactured by Schneider Kreuznach and Carl Zeiss. The current lens series carries the brand names ALPAGON, ALPAR, and Macro SWITAR. Together with the typical "gold ring", they guarantee the ALPA quality. Lenses manufactured by Schneider Kreuznach were mainly branded HELVETAR. The ALPA Apo-SWITAR 5.6/36 mm was a Schneider lens, too. As a reminiscence to the famous Macro Switar lenses from Kern Aarau for 35mm cameras, we now carry a Macro SWITAR (Rodenstock) and the Cine SWITARE for moving image.
