Nikon W 135mm F5.6:

Excellent, ultra wide angle on 5X7. Lens filter rim is damaged, though lens still easily takes filters. Aperture scale is hand marked & accurate.

Schneider Symmar S 210mm F5.6:

Normal angle of view on 5X7. This modern lens is an excellent "do it all" lens. Modern, coated glass mounted in a modern shutter. Front element shows some minor cleaning marks on coating, which do not affect image quality in any way.
