I just tried to access www.schneideroptics.com, and it now refers to the German site. No more vintage lens data?

I hope this can be found elsewhere; I refer to it for past and current lens data. I tried Google Archive (www.wayback.com), and no help there.

While not mission critical, it was helpful to have that resource. The LF Home Page has info on Apo Symmars, but none on vintage lenses like Symmar lens.

That link worked for me and lists their LI and CA offices. Why not call the Hauppage, NY office and ask them.
They havenít made large format lenses for a while and digital lenses are also gone. But their data should still be somewhere.

Neil's right, www.schneideroptics.com redirects to https://schneiderkreuznach.com/en. Brian's right, https://www.schneideroptics.com/info/vintage_lens_data/ is still up. If Schneider follows their usual pattern, it will soon be gone.

I noticed this recently, found a recent good version of www.schneideroptics.com on archive.org and changed the list to point to the archived version.
