This beautifully engineered lens was manufactured using pre-WWII materials by Jos. Schneider Optische Werke, referred from hereon as Schneider-Kreuznach. The lens is solid machined brass with a hard chrome coating, making it very heavy for its size, and when held in the hand it possesses a definite feeling of solidity. The shiny chrome, the gorgeous engravings and the deep purple coating of the front lens element all combine to create a lens that typifies the height of German mid-century photographic craftsmanship.
