If, like me, you spend too much time and money on old large format lenses you may be frustrated that the data that used to be hosted on the Schneider Optics site has disappeared. The URL now redirects to https://schneiderkreuznach.com/ I’ve looked around but can only find the data on the Internet Archives Wayback Machine where it is slower and trickier to access.
For your convenience and mind I therefore wrote a script and did some data knitting to create this single web page with all the old data on it. I expect someone will tell me this data is available somewhere else and I’ve wasted my time but it was only a couple of hours and is done now. Just search this page for the lens you are looking for.
Update: You may be interested in my lens coverage app based on this data.
I don’t believe it is possible to copyright specifications within the EU so I am free to do this. I also don’t believe Scheinder would mind – but guys if you do please let me know and I’ll take it down.
Angulon
Introduced in 1930, the Angulon is the original Schneider wideangle lens. It is a 6element, 2group, symmetric design. Compared to many modern wide angles, these lenses are quite compact, although the angle of coverage is only 80°. They are well colorcorrected and the symmetrical design results in excellent close up performance.

SuperAngulon
These are wideangle lenses of modern design which have substantially greater coverage than the Angulons. The f/4 lenses give 95° of coverage, the f/8 lens series gives 100° coverage, and the f/5.6 lenses give a 105° coverage. The f/4 and f/5.6 lenses are 8element, 4group designs. The f/8 lenses are 6element in 4 groups. SuperAngulons have been multicoated. since the late 70s.

Symmar
The Symmar was originally introduced in 1920. It is a 6element, 4group, symmetric design with a 70° angle of coverage. The Symmar lenses are “convertable”. Like most large format lenses they are constructed with two cells which fit into the front and back of a shutter. By removing one of these cells and using only half the lens, the user can create a lens with substantially longer focal length. The resulting longer focal length lens will produce a softer image that can be useful for portrait photography.

TeleArton
The TeleArton is a telephoto design. Their short flange focal length allows the use of long lenses on cameras with short bellows extension, such as the “technical cameras”. Earlier f/4 and f/5.5 models are 5 elements in 4 groups. The 250 mm f/5.6 is a modern multicoated 5element, 5group lens. All models have a 35° angle of coverage.

TeleXenar
TeleXenar lenses are 4element, 2group telephoto lenses. As with all telephoto lenses, they have a short flange focal length, allowing the use of long lenses even on cameras with limited bellows draw. The 360mm and 500mm focal lengths feature 35° of coverage. The 1000 mm lenses, by comparison, give only an 18° angle of coverage, but require even less bellows draw than other telephoto designs (slightly more than 1/2 the effective focal length, as opposed to about 2/3 for a normal tele lens). All of the TeleXenars will cover the 5×7 inch format.

Xenar
The Schneider lenses of the Xenar series are worldrenowned as standard lenses used by professional photographers in the press, advertising, and portrait fields.
Designed as fourelement, threecomponent systems, they give brilliant pictures in full, natural color. Their carefully balanced correction ensures outstanding image quality. As a result, reasonably priced and versatile Xenar lenses are essential elements for any professional photographer.
Xenar lenses are 4 element “Tessar type” lenses, originally introduced in in 1919. They offer good image quality in a compact lens with coverage of 6062°. This classic design stood the test of time and was produced until the late 1990’s.

Thank you kindly for publishing these pages I really appreciate it.
Schneider has removed all of its old large format lens data from the internet, it is still possible to get it from a site (
http://web.archive.org/web/20160413…m/info/vintage_lens_data/large_format_lenses/)
but one can not know how long that will be available.
Your page is dowloadable and therefore one can have it till one dies!!!!
This is a grat service and you should be commended for it.
If you agree I will diseminate your page on a large format blog for wider diffusion.
Sincerely,
Gaston
Thank you very much for this very useful compilation. I didn’t notice the Schneider pages were gone until a couple of days ago when I searched for the Angulon 6.8/120mm.
I like your blog, by the way. It’s the right mix of topics on photography and personal remarks.
Best wishes
Stefan
Very nice presentation of very useful lens data on a number of my “old friends” from 4×5; 5×7; 6×17; Hasselblad and Rollieflex days. I am looking at a TeleXenar 3.8 75mm lens with C mount for a Bolex H.16 movie camera. Any idea where I can find the lens data?
Thank you, thank you!
As a new camera designer this has been a massive help and fascinating to read.
Best regards

Thanks a lot for the useful information.
I used to check the lens data at the Schneider website but it disappeared one day.
It will be helpful to find a suitable lens for me and others.
Thank you and cheers.
