    Schneider 47mm f:8 Super-Angulon in Synchro-Compur 00 shutter (1-1/500 sec + B) with X and M sync and V (self-timer) settings all in good working order. Glass is in excellent condition. 00 shutters don't have a focus or T setting, so you need to use a locking cable release to focus. No caps. Covers 6.5x9 cm.

    I think I bought this one on APUG and it was in a new shutter that didn't have an f:stop index, so I measured the stops and made an index on the barrel of the front cell, which is easier to read than if it were on the shutter itself. On the opposite side, I've made an index mark for the shutter speed dial. To be sure the scale is aligned properly, open the aperture to the widest position and adjust the position of the front cell so the aperture pointer points to the "align lever" mark. The front cell should be screwed in snugly.

    Wow this would be a perfect lens for my "flat top" Mamiya Universal project...Gotta keep this lens in mind. I would snatch it up if I had the money, good price for a super wide lens. I think this would be about a 21mm equivalent on 135.

    Yes, this lens is ideal for a wideangle rollfilm camera project. I think you can find the same lens on one version of the Brooks Veriwide 6x10cm cameras.
