The 5.6/240 JSK Tele-Xenar was an aerial-recon lens made for the Luftwaffe
in the Second World War.  Due to, ah, 'different priorities', a bunch of
these were never picked up by the German military and were, after the War,
sold to the civilian market.  Burke & James acquired many of these and
mounted them to fit the demand of the marketplace.

They are fine lenses, readily available in a variety of mounts.

Go for it, brother!
