After years of looking for a IIIS, finally not one but two appeared, both in the usual disrepair. The technician made one good out of both. It has the Xenar lens.

Tested with a short strip of very old Pan F (without the +).

We all know these lenses are good, but anyway, I am amazed. Right against the sun, a 50% center crop:

Magnificent! You have a winner there, Julio, and in your capable hands, it will produce many more beautiful photos.

Thanks PF! I have to give this one a thorough exercise.

And maybe look for more of those Schneider lensesl...

Kodak put some really nice glass on their higher end cameras.

Please keep posting your efforts and results!

Thanks for sharing and best of luck.
