Hello everyone!
I know this is not a "Vintage" lens, but I would like to know about it.
I am interested in buying one and I found one used in good shape, any words? Is it a good quality lens?

Thanks to everyone for your time!

Well my dear Banjo!

Thanks a lot for the info...

To be honest, that is how is listed...

Schneider Telephoto 360mm f/5.5 Tele-Xenon in Copal 3 Shutter

I take your word and I suppose it is the Tele-Arton, the focal length, the max Aperture matches.

Any additional Comments?

It is a good lens?

Thanks Man!

If this http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/800744492-USE/Schneider_Telephoto_360mm_f_5_5_Tele_Xenon.html is the lens you're looking at, the listing says explicitly Tele-Xenar.

A Lens Collector's Vade Mecum says that the Tele-Arton "is in general an improvement on the good TeleXenar."

I think the Scheider Tele-Xenar 360mm is a nice lens. I'm going to try to attach 2 photos to this. The first was with the 127 mm Ektar that came with my Speed Graphic. It came out overrexposed so I used it to approximate what the Tele-Xenar did which is shown in the second photo on the same camera at the same place. Both were shot with Polaroid Type 52.
