Schneider Apo Symmar MC 150mm F5.6 (Korean branding):

The 150mm is normal angle of view on 4X5 (equivalent to 50mm on 35mm format cameras). The Apo Symmar is Schneider's latest version of LF lenses, a modern, multi-coated, all around sharp lens, branded for the Korean market (different markings than all other Schneider lenses). Mounted in a self-cocking, Copal Press shutter. Minor internal dust, which will not affect image quality. Otherwise, clean glass and good working shutter.

Schneider Super Angulon 75mm F8:

The 75mm is a super wide angle of view on 4X5 (equivalent to 24mm on 35mm format cameras). Clean glass, modern copal shutter, runs nicely at all speeds.
