MD 135mm f2 lens

Update II (5/21/15).-- The lens was sold to KEH. I had a lot of people view the ad for this lens, but no one inquired let alone offered to buy the lens or make an offer, so it's gone to KEH, and will be on their Website in the future. Ya'll missed your chance for a great lens.

Update.-- The price is negotiable, see below, but consider KEH would sell this lens for more than the asking price, and in fact I have a quote from them for the asking price and if it doesn't sell here soon, I'll sell it to KEH as I did the collection.

Below are the photos of the last lens for sale, maybe, which is a MD 135mm f2 lens. There are a lot of f2.8 and slower 135mm lenses but none faster. I like this lens and for that reason kept it out of the collection sold to KEH, but for the right price, it's available.

The lens comes with a 72mm Tiffen Haze-1 filter which is one of several types I commonly keep on lenses because they don't impact the image and protect the outer lens from dust and damage. For the last few years it's been mostly sitting but the lens is still clear and works great.

The asking price is $600, shipping included. Please let me know if you have any question, outside the obvious, will I accept a lower price, for which the answer is, "Make an offer I can't refuse." I don't need to sell it and would love to keep it, but circumstances aren't in my favor, but not enough to sell it for less.

Schneider 300mm

Here's the Schneider Symmar-S MC 300mm f5.6 lens. Other than the obvious discoloration on the edge of the outer lens mount, the lens is in excellent condition. The asking price is $600 including priority shipping in the US.

Schneider 180mm

Update.--This lens has sold.

Here is the Schneider APO Symmar-S 180mm f5.6 MC lens. It's the last iteration of this lens with all the improvements for coatings. The asking price is $400 including priority shipping in the US.

Schneider 90mm

The first of the large format lens is a Schneider Super-Angulon 90mm f5.6. If you're not familar with Schneider's lenses, the designation is in part the evolution of the lens, mostly add prefixes or suffixes, for improvements or newer versions. This is the first generation after the f8 version and before the MC and XL versions. The asking price for this lens $300, priority shipping in the US included.

Schneider Lenses

Here are the three Schneider large format lenses for sale, a Super-Angulon 90mm f5.6, an APO-Symmar 180mm f5.6 and a Symmar-S MC 300mm f5.6. They're in excellent condition minus some wear and obvious age. The asking prices are individually $300, $400 and $700, respectively, or $1,300 for the set of three, all including priority shipping in the US.
