|Selling my Schneider Componon S 50mm F/2.8 enlarger lens for $56 + actual shipping with USPS First Class https://postcalc.usps.com Weight of the lens + packaging, is 130 grams; so shipping cost seems to be $4 for lower 48 states.
Return is accepted, but cost will be on buyer. Shipping from Houston, Texas 77030. Local pick up is possible.
Optical condition is decent, but not perfect. Top lens top surface has some dendrites in periphery, but I did not see negative effect on imagery. In fact, when I received the lens from Keh Camera (who did not mention those dendrites or any imperfections at all) last year, I though it was in perfect optical condition.
Please see magnified images of this lens and read discussions in this thread for more details (member Ray also think those dendrites should not affect image quality significantly):
Aperture works smoothly.
This lens is/was the standard recommendation for those starting macrophotography, at on-sensor magnification of 1x-3x (when reversed and extended). Its peak performance is likely at around 2x.
A 43mm male -42mm female adapter can be included for $2 more.
I am selling it, because I bought more lenses after it, which are more convenient to use on my camera. This lens has been used only twice since purchase and have been staying in a dry box.
