5 Frames with a Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 50mm f/2.8 Lens – By Cheyenne Morrison

This is an article about one of my favourite vintage lenses, there is a whole story about how I found this lens, but the article will deal with why it’s unique.

In pantheon of lens manufacturers there are the well-knowns such as Leitz and Zeiss, but I think Schneider-Kreuznach deserves to be right up there along with them. This lens is the Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 50mm f/2.8 normal, prime, manual focus lens. This is an impressively well engineered, all brass constructed lens, with a beautiful bright chrome finish.
