Hello all:

I have read elsewhere on the forum that there are several makes of this lens. -S -W... I have also learned that the "old" -W do not state so, i.e., they do not say that it is a Symmar -W 150mm.
If this is the case, how do I identify them? Is any APO Symmar 150 that doesn't have any other mark a -W? Do I need to look for a specific serial number?

Thanks in advance,

Alejandro

I think you mean the Apo-Sironar aka Apo-Sironar-W

Yes, exactly. I have been looking at way too many charts and reviews and sironars-symmars...

Anyway... Yes, Apo-Sironar-W, with the sought after 80 degrees coverage and great image circle. If it doesn't have any "-X" then is it the -W? (Is that the only way of identifying it or the serial number can also be used?

Thanks again,

the sironar w is mounted in #1 shutter the other 150mm sironars are mounted in #0.

I don't own a 150mm Apo-Sironar W, but I do own the 210mm. It clearly states it's name, so I can't see a chance for confusion. I don't have the lens with me here, so that I can check it up, but I am almost sure that it also has 80 inscribed...
Helping to identify the W is also the color of the ring (? - sorry, I don't know the right word for it...): it is YELLOW (instead of red or green or whatever colors other Rodenstock lenses might have).
Heavy lenses, but very good.
Cheers,
Rui
