Vintage Kodak Schneider Retina-Tele-Xenar
135mm f4 Telephoto Lens w/ Case -
Near Mint Condition - Manual Focus Lens Adaptable for Digital Use - Super Nice!

Includes original plastic Kodak lens case.

Please check out the detailed pictures I took of the
actual lens set you will receive. Judge the condition for yourself.

*Please be sure to read this part...
In summary - this is a vintage telephoto lens made in Germany in the 1960s.
The overall condition of the lens is near mint in my opinion.
It will have some dust specs inside the lens (this is common even when new).
Under visual inspection, the glass (optics) look to be free of any detracting
marks - no cleaning marks, no scratches, and no visible fungus.
This is a manual focus lens designed to mount directly
to FILM CAMERAS such as the Kodak Retina Reflex S, III, IV
and Retina IIS rangefinder... IT CAN be adapted for use on other
branded film cameras and SOME digital cameras with
the proper adapter. It MAY mount on the Instamatic Reflex 126 SLR.

The base of the case is a bit loose.

This lens is a joy to use. The focus is super smooth. The mount is secure and tight.
The aperture blades are snappy and free of visible oil.

The lens will be packaged for a safe and secure journey - mails super
quickly - often same day!

Thanks for stopping by!
