Lens Description: The Horseman 250mm f/5.6 Tele-Xenar Lens is a Schneider 250mm f/5.6 Tele-Xenar with a standard Copal #1 shutter, but built into a Horseman-specific helical focusing mount and barrel assembly made to fit upon their SW617 Professional medium format panoramic camera. It provides a mildly compressed telephoto perspective on the 617 Professional, roughly equivalent to the view of a 60mm lens in 35mm terms. A built-in lens guard helps protect the sensitive optics.
