Schneider-Kreuznach Componon 150mm f/5.6 w/ Compur Electronic 1

Schneider-Kreuznach Componon 150mm f/5.6 w/ Compur Electronic 1


Availability: 1 in stock


This 150mm f/5.6 is great standard lens, giving a focal length equivalent to approximately 50mm in 35mm format terms. Coated optics improve light transmission and contrast. It’s mounted in an extraordinarily uncommon electronic Compur shutter which requires a battery to operate, but gives timed exposures of up to 32 seconds automatically. Without battery, it will fire at 1/500th, the maximum speed.

What’s included?

This lens also includes the mounting ring and non-original hood.


  • Cosmetic: Overall good, some signs of use visible but very presentable.
  • Optical: Very clean optics, free from haze, fungus and scratches.
  • Electronic: Shutter requires battery. When we received the lens into our stock some years ago, a correct battery was bought and the speeds tested and all was working. The battery has since run out, as we have used it on a 5×4 enlarger acting as a regular enlarging lens. Tested now with a CR2 battery and a spacer to provide connection, and all is working OK. Buyer will have to purchase the correct PX-21 battery.
  • Mechanical: All shutter speeds and apertures working.

    Our photos.
    The vast majority of our items are individually photographed - however any commonplace items will be listed in multiples and may be stock photos which we have previously made. An example of this would be standard 50mm f/1.8 lenses for Olympus OM or Pentax PK. We get dozens of these and it is not efficient to list them indivudually. Items purchased will match their descriptions in terms of condition and functionality, and be as similar as possible to the images shown but may have nominal differences. As a rule of thumb, we always use individual photographs for items over £50.

    Every single piece of used equipment we sell is comprehensively inspected and tested by us. If an item has faults, they will be fully and accurately described - but all our items will be usable for their intended purpose - we do not sell items for spares or in need of repair on our website.

    We describe each item individually in detail on the product page to ensure that everything that you need to know about the item is clear and simple. The description is usually just a short sentence about each aspect of the item - the cosmetic, optical, electronic and mechanical condition is noted - but any faults or oddities will be included here too, so remember to read them carefully!


    We endeavor to dispatch stock within 48 hours of receiving cleared payment (not including weekends or bank holidays) although this is not guaranteed, and you will be notified if there is any delay. Once the item has been dispatched, we cannot be held responsible for any service delays from the courier that is used. We always post items with delivery confirmation and full insurance up the order value. Requests for shipping methods without tracking or insurance will be politely declined.


    Any equipment bought online from West Yorkshire Cameras has a 14 day return guarantee from the date the item has been received by you. For full information on returns policy, see our Returns page.
