Schneider Aero Xenar 500mm F4.5 ULF
is a very massive lens made by the most known german company Schneider Kreuznach. This specimen features a focal lenght of 500mm (or 19 3/4") which
is impressive on its own, but the most interesting spec is that it also
offers a max. aperture of
This is the largest Xenar lens i had in the shop so far. With its 500mm focal lenght it will work nicely for ULF portraits, the F4.5 open aperture will give you fantastic DOF on your groundglass!
I would reocmmend this lens for 11x14 and up to 14x17 portrait. Maybe even larger, but i didnt test that.
The condition of the lens is really really good. The metall comes in a nice shape, showing no obvious damage and only minor wear. The glass is in a great condition also, i cant spot any major faoults here. The lens features a working iris aperture which is moving from F4.5 up to F32.
The lens comes with a fitting flange and even the original leather lenscap!
