    Hallo! Well I've had it some time ago and foolishly got rid of it to buy something else. It is a decent although simple lens very suitable for portraiture if you can live with its limitationn(limited image circle) optical scheme similar to Xenar schneider, however, if cheap buy. I don't know if it is still marketed but some years ago there were lots around.Regards

    This line of lenses (90, 150, 210, & 300MM) were Rodenstock's entry level lens. They have been out of production for a while, I believe, but they are seriously under rated. They do have limited image circles, but they can make teriffic imag es. I would recommend them to anyone willing to work within that limited image c ircle. My biggest mistake, thus far in photography, was selling my 300mm. I stil l try to buy it.

    I believe these are 3 element lenses, which is why they have a fairly small coverage circle, but it should be fine at least in the longer focal lengths such as the 210. They should be sharp. I think Calumet still offers versions of this design as entry level lenses for the Cadet.
