    FS (maybe) Schneider 24/5.6 Apo Digitar

    As part of a deal on a couple of other lenses I'm interested in, I may end up with an extra (unmounted) Schneider 24/5.6 XL Apo-Digitar. The lens is in nice condition, with a new copal 0 shutter and a couple of small marks on the front retaining ring. Optics are fine. I just want to see if anyone would be interested in it before I get stuck with two of the things. Price would be around US$1500 + shipping. Cheers, Angus.

    I think there maybe some interest around here
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    I hope so - B&H photo have it listed at $2500+tax. Just in case anyone is reading this who owns a Cambo Wide RS/DS, to have it fitted in a Cambo Wide DS/RS mount would be round about $925.

    N.B. I don't have the lens yet, and I wouldn't hold anyone to anything. This is purely to see if there is interest.

    Would also be interested in a trade for a Schneider 5,6/47XL Apo-Digitar in a Cambo Wide RS/DS lens panel.

    Ok, I went for the deal and have two of these now. Will post pictures when it arrives (probably a week or so).

    (In case anyone is looking for one of these in a Cambo Wide RS/DS mount, the last one on eBay went for $3600, and new they're around $4700+tax. Buy this one, get it retro-fitted and save over $1100 used and $2200 new).

    Iíve got this same lens and can truthfully say itís a great lens at a great price (where were you when I was buying mine ). Thereís little to no movement available on a WRS however this is wide enough where you donít need any.

    Again great lens at a great price - just my 2₵.

    Thanks Don. These things are crazy expensive new, so hopefully when I post a few pictures it might generate some interest....if not it'll go the way of eBay.
