    I found this lens yesterday and was wondering if anyone knows anything about it? From what I can figure out its an enlarger lens because theres no focusing ring, does anyone know how much this lens would be worth aswell?

    You're right, it is an enlarging lens. Schneider made (and still make) two ranges of enlarging lenses, Componon and Componar. The Componar is the cheaper range. 75mm means it is suited to medium format negatives - you look for a lens with a focal length that is equivalent to a normal lens on a camera of that format, so for 35mm film you would look for something around 50mm

    The lens typically sells used for about US $50 to $60.

    If you search for 'Completed Listings" the last one went for US $59.
