Ive seen loads of Schneider Componar process and enlargement lenses for sale on ebay and various used camera shops.

They are commonly over 100mm with fstop of <6. I havent yet been able to find out how many elements they have or if they are focusable.

I havent found a mention of these lenses in the forums, so I am thinking Im way off the mark. Has anyone tried these? Do they seem suitable?
