WTB: Apo Sironar S lenses

If anyone has a mint Apo Sironar S 130, 150, 210, 240 for sale I'd be grateful to get contacted. I am getting a bit into analogue again for the passion of the process and want to see where 4x5 leads me ... I am based in Switzerland!

Well that's a tricky focal length ... I might come back at a later point once I've covered my bases with the 150 etc. ... what state is it in and where are you based?


Can’t recommend the 150 enough, Paul ;) It’s brilliant. I have the “Sinaron SE” version of the Apo-Sironar S. Amazing image circle! That said, I use it for fashion rather than landscape, etc - still spectacular nonetheless.

I've been slowly starting to list a bunch of LFF lenses. You can see some of them on LFF and APUG (I refuse to call APUG by their new name :). Same user name as here, nbagno.

I have a mint Schneider - Kreuznach Super-Symmar 5.6/150 XL-105 degrees that I haven't had the chance to list yet if you are interested. It's in a Copal 1 shutter.
As I'm sure you know, this is an outstanding lens. I'm not convinced that I want to part with it though :-|. I'm sure you know it's not a cheap lens. Feel free to PM me.



Shutter speeds test as follows:
1 - .930
2 - 1/2
4 - 1/4
8 - 1/7
15 - 1/14
30 - 1/36
60 - 1/68
125 - 1/113
250 1/217
400 - 1/384
