Schneider Tele-Xenar f5.6 400 compactgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
Any recommendations concerning the Schneider Tele-Xenar HM 5.6 400mm compact lens. I would use it on 4x5 field cameras, either a Wisner or a TK45s Use would be landscape, some limited architectural details and portraiture. I have a Fujinon 450 mm lens but find bellows extension plus wind factors that I cannot wrestle with predictably. I know the Schneider is heavy and in a #3 shutter, but since I used a Schneider 300mm Xenar in a similar shutter for years weight alone, unless the cameras cannot bear it, is not a major consideration. Image circle and filter size I am uncertain of and Schneider's website was unavailable for some reason. Thanks in advance,
