Schneider 50mm f/2.8 PQS MF lens for Rolleiflex 6000 and Hy6 series cameras (used)

This is the manual focus version of the fast Scheider moderate wide angle lens with top shutter speed of 1/1000th second.  It's actually got a little less distortion than the AF version and renders with a nice 3D film look and has the beautiful bokeh and sharpness that the Schneider lenses for this system are known for.  I will admit that  it's a bit chunky, but it does have some big glass that makes it much easier to manually focus than other wides.  I know of several photographers using this lens for street and environmental portraits. 

Condition of this copy is overall excellent. Fully tested and working.  I want to call attention to 3 very tiny pin head sized marks on the front element.  You can see them near the reflection of the ring light in the 2nd photo.  Since they are very small and on the edge, I doubt highly that they will ever affect an image in any way, however I can't say the glass is perfect.  I took plenty of photos so you can see and judge for yourself - very good otherwise!  There also is some internal dust which is quite common in Rollei lenses and more so with the PQS versions since they have carbon fiber internal shutter and aperture blades.
