    Schnder 770XXL

    Hi All
    The mythical Schneider f16/770XXL Fine Art Lens will be back on the menu very soon, Schneider are making a small amount of them exclusively for Walker Cameras.
    They will be in a retro Copal 3S shutter.
    Not the all black Copal 3 shutter seen in photo.
    Please donít miss out if you have always wanted one of these, as they will never be made again.
    If interested please email me,
    mike@walkercameras.com

    What photo? There's none in this thread nor any mention of the new production arrangement on your Web site.

    Thankfully there is no photo! I already lost one key board shorted out by drool. let's see...I have boys -- one is a senior and the other is a junior at equally expensive colleges...which one should I de-fund for a year to buy such a lens? Hmmmmm...

    Mike did ask for interested people to contact him by email. Lots of images of the lenses on-line.

    Huh? Mike needs a break from questions after starting the thread here? Simple inquiries in the venue where he made his announcement seem entirely appropriate.

    Does anyone have any personal experience with using one of Schneider's Fine Art XXL lenses? Had seriously considered one that was offered to me. Even though the cost was at what I'd consider to be a bargain, I instead was able to purchase a Protar and a Dagor (both shutter mounted) which had the coverage I was looking for.
