    FS: 210mm Schneider Apo Symmar L, f5.6

    General Comments: When you need to reach out across a lake to a row of trees, shoot a hillside of aspens, employ a selective focus technique, this is an ideal lens. It is beautifully sharp within the depth of field range, but it being a 210mm, that dof range is small, especially on subjects relatively close. However I found the lens to be a very useful tool to get images that were out of the ordinary for most technical camera users.

    Image Circle: 320 mm

    Filter Thread Size: 77 mm

    Focal Length Equivalent on 35mm DSLR: 135 mm

    Equipment Condition: There are no scratches anywhere on the lens barrel and the lens elements are immaculate. Note: the rear lens cap has partially split and is held together with electrical tape.

    *Functional shift capability from center: 25 mm

    *The distance the camera back can be moved laterally across the image circle before image degradation becomes unusable.

    Price: $2,000

    Does it require an extension box @ the back?

    Any idea how this lens compares with APO Digitar version?

    Thanks,

    This is moderate wide angle on 8x10. Not obvious from the posting for what camera platform this is intended - perhaps clarify?
