Lens Description: The Schneider 400mm f/5.6 Apo-Tele-Xenar Lens is a telephoto specialist for the 4x5 format, made with the needs of field cameras in mind. While it has great image quality as any Schneider would, it is the physical elements of this lens that are particularly special. It only needs 285mm of bellows draw at infinity to achieve its impressive 400mm focal length that can truly create some stunning images, and it has a compact 60mm rear barrel so that it easily fits into the use of many 4x5 system cameras. While the Apo-Tele-Xenar is designed primarily for brilliant, detailed studies of distant scenes, it is also a practical lens for portraiture.
