:) I just bought a second hand Schneider-Kreuznach Tele-Xenar 240mm/5.5 lens to use on my Arca-swiss F-line 4x5 camera. I can find few information about this lens in the web, So I wonder if this lens is suitable for landscape by 4x5 camera. :confused:

The Schneider archives list it for 9x12, so it should work. They also list the 270 for 9x12 which should work better.

I have this lens and use it on my Tachihara with no problems. The glass is 1949 vintage in a dial set shutter. I've played with movements when I first got in and didn't seem to be able to run out of movements for what I tried. It should work fine if it's the same as I have.
