    Rodenstock 75mm f4.5 Grandagon-N vs Grandagon MC

    Hi All,

    I have an opportunity to buy a used Rodenstock 75mm f4.5 Grandagon MC for less than half the price of a new Grandagon-N. What's the difference? I'm probably most concerned with image circle, since this lens will be used for architecture, with possible significant tilts, shifts, etc.

    Thanks,
    David

    According to the comparison chart on the LF Home Page, the Rodenstock f4.5 75 Grandagon-N has an image circle of 195mm and takes 67mm screw-in filters.

    MC stands for Multi Coated.

    If it's not labeled "N", it's probably an older version of the Grandagon.

    I don't have documentation at hand, but I believe the image circle specification was not changed when Rodenstock added the "-N" to the Grandagons. Bob Salomon will know for sure.
