H1 lens is 35mm similar to 38mm Biogon


New Member
I want to know if the new 35mm lens for H1 camera will give the same kind of picture of the 38mm Biogon lens of 905SWC camera? The 35mm of the H1 covers the 4.5X6 format and the Biogon covers the 6X6 of the 905SWC camera. Is it roughly the same?...Thanks.
I hope its not too late to respond.
Angle of view wise, both lenses may be near to each other(diagonal angle of veiw of 90úú degrees +/-1). But, lens design wise, brand/make wise, covering power, correctness of distortion & abberations wise, optical performance wise, etc, both lenses are not simillar in any way.
