    Schneider (Robot) Xenon f1.9 40mm autumn shots

    Another evening walk catching the last sun rays, this time using the Schneider Xenon f1.9 40mm (all shot fully open) on my Lumix GH1.

    I really like these images, Klaus. Where do we get a Robot adapter? I think I saw one once.

    Got mine from China (ebay), works pretty well.

    P.S.: there are quite a bunch of "Robot Star" lenses out on the market;
    I have used a last series (all black) multicoated one (13 xxx xxx
    serial number series), also have the 75mm Tele-Xenar sister lens.

    Very nice, Klaus. I just put together the adapter and cleaned my two Robot lenses, also the 40mm and the 75mm, but earlier chrome versions. Not 100% sure about the 40mm, yet, I may send it in for a professional cleaning. The 75mm is probably the smallest 75 that I have seen so far which makes it really look nice on the GF1, but I have yet to see what the pictures look like... For a while I had tried to get my hands on the Robot Zeiss 40mm lens but eventually passed because they are considerably more than the Schneider lenses - and I like Schneider lenses... Do you have the Zeiss also? Any comparisons?

    The older ones have quite less contrast, so be prepared.

    Thanks for mentioning that, this is why I was considering sending mine in, it looks clear but the first pics are much less contrasty than what you have posted here.

    it is the lack of multicoating that makes a tremendous difference (a clean lens I have assumed).
