I'm looking to try the lens after reading brief reviews from Google search.
Does anyone have any direct experience with this lens?
Please share some photos from the lens as well....

I have read a bit about it. Huge, heavy, expensive, but with a very nice look. Somewhere I saw that the sharpness isn't as good as some other similar lenses, like the Hasselblad 180, but from Graham's shots it looks quite okay.

It is a Rolleiflex 6000 mount and won't fit on the Hasselblad. It is fully electronic and won't work on the 5DII unless there is an adapter I am not aware of.

It is big, it is heavy, it is a beauty, it is a beast. It is very sharp and has the Schneider/Leica look. It is not so good at MFD wide open but great at longer distances. Capable of very thin DoF. There are 3 versions MF, AF and AFD. All are fully electronic and work only on the Rollei 6000 series, AFD only on Hy6/AFi.

There is also a 180/2.8 made by Carl Zeiss Jena for Pentacon Six.

I'm actually eyeing one that was converted to fit on my Hasselblad 205...
It means I can use Hassy to EOS adapter to use it on 5D MkII as well.....

Wow! I wonder who worked hard enough on the conversion, yet let it go in the end?

It was converted by a professional in Korea.
I feel fortunate to own a rare one...

I loved my 180mm f/2.8 Schneider Tele-Xenar. Used it mostly for b+w portraits in studio (film, I can't afford the rare air Rollei 6000 series digital back operators must breath) but also used it for some landscape photography as well. Sold it not too long ago. If someone made a NEX mount for it, I might have kept it!

Tail, wag dog.

That's funny, because I was just thinking about putting the EOS to Nex adapter on it....

I think its capability will shine on medium format though...

I wonder what would be its DOF equivalent in 35mm....
I mean..... DOF of 180/2.8 in medium format..... will it be like 180/2.0 of in 35mm?

Are you sure it was a Rollei 6000 series lens to begin with? They are basically non-convertible with their electronic shutters and apertures.

I believe it's a manual focus lens....
it is very fat and heavy lens...with 95mm filter ring.

I'll take a picture of it tomorrow....

Yes...
It is just like a normal manual focus lens on Hasselblad...

I'm also getting the converted Super Angulon 40mm...
