I've been searching for information on this lens, and so far have come up empty. I recently purchased a Schneider Xenotar 135mm lens mounted in a Synchro-Compu r shutter and would like to know what sort of coverage it provides for a 4x5 mon orail & any limitations I need to be aware of in terms of camera movements. I'v e found information on some of the shorter Xenotars, and the image circle size s eems substantially smaller than many other comperable lenght lenses. Thank you for your help.

Paul, you've probably figured this out by now but the coverage of your lens is pretty small. It covers 4x5 easily but watch those movements because you lose the corners pretty quickly. But it's a fine lens. I use mine all the time with 4x5 and I have a pretty old one.
