Schneider Kreuznach Xenar 180mm F3.5
History: The Jos. Schneider Xenar is very well known for its absolute corrected field all over the image area. Still this is not the boring F4.5 version, its the faster F3.5 version which offerst a nice shallow DOF for portraiture work. Its very compact and rather lightweight companion for field work also.
With its 180mm focal lenght and F3.5 aperture this Xenar will work well for 4x5 and up to 5x7 formats.
condition of the lens is really good. There are not many large Xenars with F3.5
in this condition on the market. The black laquere shows only minimal wear, but the
most important thing: the glass
is in a very good condition! showing only very minimal cleaning marks, no haze and
no fungus here.
The lens comes with its original flange.
