    The Schneider Xenon 50mm f/1.9 is quite an amazing chrome lens in DKL mount. This is how it looks mounted on Sony A7

    I tested it shooting wide open in f/1.9 and the lens performs surprisingly well

    I wish you were in US. If I can't sell this ending this weekend, I won't re-list it on ebay, I may plan to run it through a roll of film and see if the body actually works. And I probably come back to this buy&sell place and provide worldwide shipping. Unfortunately, the package weights over 3.5 lb and it is expensive to ship worldwide, hence I sell within US.

    The lens is real treat and out of the three Schneider lenses that I tried on with xenar 45mm f/2.8 (very cute pancake in DKL mount or easily converted to M42), this xenon 50mm f/1.9 and tele-xenar 135mm f/4.0, the 50mm fast prime is the one to get. The 50 prime has the best image quality and minimal focusing distance is acceptable.

    Cheers,
    Hin
