    Schneider-Kreuznach Tele-Xenar1:5/240

    A neighbor gave me a Schneider-Kreuznach Tele-Xenar1:5/240 that her husband used to use on a press camera. The Serial # is 3465546. It is marked Linhof on the barrel and has a Linhoff shutter. I would like to fin d out more about this lens. Quality, value, sharpness, history, etc. I looked on the Schnider website, but didnt get any answers. Thanks,

    It is a good, sharp, older (1950's to 60's) tele lens. I have one for my Tech III and use it a good amount. The shutter is easy to clean and maintain. Check to see how the shutter speeds are in the 1 sec, 1/2 second range. If they lag it needs to be cleaned. Go to http:// www.skgrimes.com/index.htm and ask Steve.

    I also have one of these, and like it a lot. Mine came with a Linhof TechV I used to have. Got rid of the Tech and keep the Lens. Now I use it with my Brand New Shen-Hao.

    I also have a Rodenstock Sironar, and can't tell the difference between negatives made with either.

    I believe there are two versions of this lens. One for 6x9 and a second, larger lens for 4x5. Mine is for the 6x9, and it has a rear lens diameter that's just shy of 1.5". Schneider used to have stats for this lens on their webpage, but they've apparently pulled it.
