Not, sorry.

Only curiosity to know.

The bellows head version without focusing? My lens-friend Jack has that one listed here in Exakta mount. It is relatively uncommon from what I know.

I have the sister macro version called M-Travenar 2.8/50mm with sunken in lens (can be used seperately on bellows) and long focusing helicoid in M42 version. Quite nice and very well made (got that unused in makers box) with 12 blade round aperture. It is shown on the left side; right is the 3.3/100mm Travegar head. There was also a version with focusing helicoid which you may have Attila(?). [Our member "praktinafan" should have that lens, too]

On flickr there are quite some images shown using this Schacht lens, from our member "praktinafan" for instance here:

Wide open seems soft, but pleasing, with no bad aberrations.
Might be good for portrait.
I'm curious to see it how it does stopped down.

There is several images taken at F8 and I did note some of them.

This is a very good portrait lens, soft as need at wide open a sharp stopped down. There is two stairs first wide open , second at F8 sharp at F8.

Klaus, I'm afraid I know the guy "Telemar" ... Very Happy My Travegar is a 3,5/105 lens head , triplet formula relevant.

Nice samples Atilla, definitely some poetry there. I have this lens too reminds me of Meyer Trioplan 100mm.

That's a lovely portrait sergtum, very nice.

I see that I was going to post some pictures from my cheap old Travegar back in 2011, so I guess I'd better while it's fresh in my mind. Embarassed

I've still got it, and that's because I do like it, even though I don't use it a great deal now. it's a nice lens that I've used on my K10, NEX5 and the A6000. It's a well made lens, sharp enough and has lovely bokeh, what's not to like? I should use it more.

Here's a bunch of pictures, all old ones that I've put on Ipernity so they are probably processed. The picture of the chimney is actually an 8 image stitch.
