    Spreadsheet of Schneider Vintage Lens Data

    I spent some time this morning in the Way Back Machine on Archive.org putting Schneider's lost vintage lens data into a spreadsheet. With the information down, I decided having everything in one place would be easier. I took everything straight from the pages, so if there's anything wrong, it should be original to Schneider's webpage (e.g. what looks like a typo on the weight of the Symmar-S 135mm f/5.6). Initially, I was going to include the data for movements, too, but that grew to be way more work than I was interested in.

    I hope this is useful, particularly since the information is no longer on Schneider's site. Feel free to save a copy of your own if you'd like.

    Cool thanks for the download.

    I didn't realize an Angulon 165 had that much coverage.

    ...or the Angulon 210 had so little coverage...

    The Angulon 210 is rated in all sorts of ways by Schneider's own brochures.

    85 Degrees at f/22 here (vs at f/16 in the spreadsheet from Schneider's web archives), but also covering 11x14 at f/45.

    The earliest numbers I've seen list it at 105 stopped down to f/64, but I think we can all agree that a 546mm IC is dubious at best.

    I happily use mine on 11x14 without issue.

    Thanks for compiling this.

    Regarding the 210mm Angulon, I have wondered if it would eke out enough coverage for 8x20. Anyone tried?

    Re: Spreadsheet of Schneider Vintage Lens Data

    Great, thanks!

    Right before I saw this, I just sent S-K an email asking where this stuff all went - they could've easily put into the "History" category on their homepage.

    I couldn't remember if that information was in there, but I was actually looking for the size of the rear cap for a Symmar-S 180 - but nothing there.

    jimi, archive.org has most, if not all, of it. "The list" has directions to apparently lost Schneider documentation.

    If you don't know what the list is, there's a link to it in the first post in a sticky "Where to look ..." in the lenses section.

    Dan,

    thanks for the suggestions! I was able to dig through the archive.org and found the pdf file for the Symmar lenses. Ordered a lens cap today.

    Hi,

    50 mm slip on, so my 1987 Symmar-S brochure (400 III/87 T 5) says. 70 mm or M67x0.75 on front.

    Best
    Jens

    Thanks, Jens! I found the dimension out earlier and ordered a Heliopan slip on cap - worked out great.
