    Schneider G-Claron 355mm

    Why was a Schneider G-Claron 355mm/f9 so cheap at Ebxy (#7528976025)? Only $300!

    Because there's no shutter.

    That guy has a whole bunch to sell and they are basically new lenses - a great deal if you are ever thinking about ULF...

    The one I acquired has a bit of Schneidernitis, but still a fabulous optic that has been discontinued. I have the same lens in a Copal #3 and the new elements will screw directly into the existing shutter. The coverage beyond 12x20 is fabulous for this focal length.

    I bought one too for about the same money. Think about spending $350-400 on a shutter and another $300 to have Steve Grimes shop mount it for you.
    The lens is awesome. Yes heavy, but it performs.

    This fellow ended up with a case of new lenses. He's kind of saturated the market even though the price is good. New shutters used to be $389. Probably more now...

    I'm curous. How many G Clarons are there in a case of new lenses?

    He mentioned he had 30 lenses.

    I got me one for my 12x20, it too had some schnideritis but for the price it was a steal.

    Re: Schneider G-Claron 355mm

    Separation of the blacking -- it bubbles up -- from the edges of lens elements is called schneideritis. IMO, it should be called Boyeritis 'cos Boyer lenses have it more often and worse than Schneider lenses.

    Has no effect on image quality, reduces resale value.
