Rare Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon f2 5cm
Collapsible Leica LTM Screw Mount Lens
- Vintage Germany 1942 - Wartime Lens! Limited Production!
- Excellent Functionality!

This is an extremely hard to find Leica screw mount lens made
by the world-renowned German optical company
Schneider-Kreuznach (Schneider Optics).

The lens is in beautiful vintage condition with a lovely
patina to the chrome metal lens barrel. I have inspected
and tested this lens on my Nicca rangefinder and it works
perfectly.

History has it that the Leitz factory could not meet the demands
made on it by the German government during the height
of World War II and so the Schneider Optical Company
took on the task of building these lenses for Leica-Leitz. They
were made in very limited numbers.

If you can imagine how hard it is to find this lens in the present day
after all these years having survived the war and its aftermath.

This lens made it to a large camera dealer in New York City from the
original owner and was purchased by my client in 1969.

The lens is in perfect function - the aperture blades are clean (a bit worn)
and complete, the focus is smooth and was tested on my Nicca.
The rangefinder focused accurately. The mount (L39) is excellent and
the lens mounts securely to the camera body. The collapsible portion
is smooth and the lens locks in place. The aperture ring is smooth an
without binding.

The glass elements (I think the front elements) have a slight fog/haze
but not so much as to diminish the view. There are spots inside the
lens - they look more like dirt and dust spots but they could be
mold. With a bright light, I do not see any fungus filaments however.

With that said the lens should be serviced by a
qualified technician to freshen up the optics.

Don't miss out on this chance to add this rare beauty to
your collection!

It will mail out super quickly and securely with full insurance and
tracking. It must be signed for to confirm delivery.

Thanks for stopping by!
