    BIG Xenar. It got whacked some time in it's life. Even brass I believe would break if you tried to bend it back without heat. No matter, it still can make gorgeous portraits.

    These big Xenar's were Heliar wannabe's. Wide open it has some decided softness happening that would give a Heliar a good run. I have to assume Schneider did that by design knowing that most if not all of these would end up on a 9X9 Studio camera lens board.

    Sorry, never had the flange for this. Yes, it will cover 11X14 at infinity and probably 14X17 stopped down or moved in to portrait distance.
