Very beautiful lenses!
Although I said many many time to myself, no more buying, still very tempting!

The cute chrome 135mm f/4.0 is sold and on its way to new owner.

The best lens in the lot is actually the Xenon 50mm f/1.9 but my copy has issues in stopping down. I can shoot wide open to f/5.6. I will do test pictures on the Xenon 50mm f/1.9 later in the week.

update 1: Here are some test pictures taken with Schneider Xenon 50mm f/1.9 shooting all wide open with Sony A7

can stop down to around f/5.6 on the Kodak Retina body

All test shots are done wide open with Sony A7. The aperture mechanics has issues in stopping down and hence I bundle the imperfect lens with the body. No lens caps, hood and adapter are provided with the sale. Just the body + leather case + lens.

Update 2: After some usage, I managed to get the aperture lever to loosen up and the lens can stop down as usual. I can't explain how happy I am tonight. I am so glad nobody show any interest. I am withdrawing this lens from sale. If you have interest for the body, drop me a PM. I may keep the superb body as its rear cap.



Cheers,
Hin

The pancake with Schneider xenar 45mm f/2.8 is very small when mounted on Pentax K-body as an M42 pancake
