    If only one has illuminated aperture numbers, I would choose it.

    Do you have any other lenses for other formats? If so, and they are Schneider, I'd match them with Schneider, or if they are Nikkor, I'd match them with Nikkor.

    Otherwise, I'd have no preference.

    Do you have any information about the seller(s)?

    I don't have any other lenses. I just got into darkroom. Is the Schneider more sharp.

    Or you will suffer in nasty 'what if', 'maybe' etc thoughts.

    Sample variation within the brands, and condition and care during the lens' life will determine which one is sharper, but most likely they will both be very similar.

    I'd buy the Schneider, German lens design is superb, Japanese lens design is to different criteria but still excellent ;D

    The quality of prints will depend way more of enlarger alignment, exact focusing and good easel (paper flatness) than either of these lenses. At least for the start.

    If the Schneider is a Componon-S, I would go with it. Just make sure that it doesn't have internal haze.
