    I have the Schneider 210/5.6 Super Symar HM I bought new in 1988. It was an expensive lens. It was one of Schneiderís most sophisticated lenses at the time and is a great deal more sophisticated and valuable than a simple 4-element Tessar design.

    It is designed to cover the 8" x 10" format but, of course, can be used on smaller format cameras as well provided that it fits. The quality of this lens is excellent.

    Filtering may be something of a problem due to its 100mm x 1.0mm filter thread.

    If the price is low and itís in good condition, you should buy it quickly before someone else does.

    The Geronar is a triplet. A Tessar is not a triplet.

    The SS HM has much more coverage than either type, is the next-to-latest generation from Schneider. If you can steal one, don't hesitate.

    Use Google to get an estimate of the going rate ... Don't be so lazy, you should have used Google first.

    Resistance is futile.
