    Why would Schneider necessarily make all the barrels etc, all their camera lenses fit shutters, at that time mostly Compur or Prontor, although some for Sinar shutters are non standard.

    The first Schneider made lens I saw in a composite barrel (nin metal) was actually a Vivitar 150mm f5.6 VHE, the lens cells are marked Made in Germany, and soon after that Scneider switched as well, but they may have had the barrels made elsewhere.

    Deckel/Compur came up with the modern shutter standard sizes, still in use today, in 1929 so maybe they made matching barrels in the same size for Schneider,

    It's a strange one, but companies s do & did sub contract, the only camera/optical company that made every single component was VEB Pentacon.

    goodfood, I've been reading photo mags for, well since the late 50's and I must have missed that one. I would love to see that Linhof enlarger. If it's anything like their cameras it would be one overbuilt enlarger and probably a dream to use. It also could be the answer to our question about this lens. JohnW

    You could also buy a cold light back for the Technika 4x5 to make it an enlarger.

    This is from the Technical News section of the Linhof International Photo Technik, January 1973 issue.

    goodfood,
    That looks like one awesome enlarger and built in the typical Linhof tradition. It even has those creamy large knurled knobs that Linhof used on almost everything. Wonder what that baby list priced for? Probably half a knew car at the time. I bet they didn't sell many as you never see them for sale used or on the big auction site. I still wish I had one to go with my knew lens. Ya, right! JohnW
