Hi, just from curiosity. This lens is on the hated auction site right now. (I pinched the picture, but if the moderators think I'm violating copyright, they can delete this.) So it's a Schneider Xenar in a LTM focusing mount. OK, I can live with all that. But I guess I didn't know Schneider was ever anywhere but Kreuznach, so maybe someone can fill me in on the history. Was this a branch plant, or a different company? The other thing that I wondered about was the serial number. If this was in the regular Schneider Kreuznach lineage, this would be a pre-1920 lens, which it obviously isn't. Did Schneider Gottingen have a different range of numbers?
