I bought this lens together with my Retina-Heligon long ago. As with the Retina-Rotelar 4/85, this is probably the smallest 85mm lens made for 35mm SLR. Even smaller than the Retina-Curtagon 2.8/35! It is a bid hard to turn the small focus ring. I use my helicoid to focus instead.

Few samples taken with my 5N with basic adjustment in LR5(tone curve set to Medium Contrast in all photos).

Thanks for viewing. Smile

The Schneider will never be expensive now as they are abundant in the US. Lenses come from brands are expensive now.
