    Fake Schneider Symmar?

    Look at the lens being sold out of Korea with this Wista 4x5 on ebay: LINK

    The Apo-Symmar font is wrong and the lens is engraved "LENS BY GERMANY" instead of "LENS MADE IN GERMANY".

    Is this a fake? Third party engraving of unlabeled lenses sold for industrial use...? Anyone have any other ideas?
