    Schneider angulon 90mm f6.8 in compur rapid shutter: $100 obo
    comes with retaining ring... shutter speeds sound reasonably accurate glass is clean with no haze or fungus

    Zeiss ikon tessar 150mm f4.5 in compur shutter: $100 obo

    I have no idea about this lens and nothing came up on a google search about it's quality but... ... couldn't find any stats about it.. but it seemed good.... I only used once... rear element has a very very small bubble on it from when it was manufactured... shutter speeds sound reasonably accurate/ glass is clean other than the bubble that i mentioned... also comes with retaining ring... (picture below was taken with this lens and a burke and james press)

    The 150mm Tessar is one of the most common pre WWII 9x12 camera lenses, that's the redesigned 30's version in a Compur 1 shutter. Should be similar to a 150mm uncoated Xenar in terms of image quality so very capable.

    It's designed to give best sharpness at f22 but is reasonable at f16, wider they are great for portraits etc but get softer as they are opened up at the edges/corners. I use a coated 1954/5 version. The shutter is over engineered and should be OK, it's more reliable than a modern Copal 1 and interchangeable :D

    I've far too many lenses around this length but the Tessar & Kodak are steals at those prices, just for the shutters alone :smile:
