HU: Lens collection bargain


#260081423235 on the auction site has a nice collection of lenses for the Kodak Retina rangefinders, also useable on Voigtländer Bessamatics and Ultramatics (with minor modifications) and Kodak Retina SLRs:
  • Schneider Curtagon 28/f4
  • Rodenstock Heligon 35/f5.6 with four extra close-up lenses
  • Rodenstock Rotelar 80/f4
  • Rodenstock Heligon 80/f4
  • Schneider Tele-Xenar 135/f4
So if you want to have an almost-complete collection of lenses by two world-class manufactures for a positively quirky leaf shutter interchangeable lens rangefinder this looks like it could turn out a bargain He says he ships to Europe, but I guess you could ask if he would ship to the USA as well. Auction ends tomorrow, it's currently at 11 EUR. As usual no connection to seller.

Bing! You're hypnotized!

Which Retina system are these for? I'm just newly aquanted with the Retina. Looks like a quirky system with some rather good glass.
