Schneider Vintage lens data?
Schneider apparently has changed their web page, and I can't find any of their vintage lens data. Suggestions?
-> Service -> Archiv
This leads you to a long list of PDF files. The list is in German, the files themselves are in 3 languages.
Wow... it was there just a couple of days ago. What a nice and useful historical archive it was. I printed out a few pages of that material... is there somehing specific you were after?

Dan, thanks for repeating David's post. You're right... David's link led to the current Schneider archives.
This archive link does not have appear to all of the same material that was on the "old" Schneider site. Conspicuously missing is the serial-number/date list and data on the 1980's-era Symmar-S MC series. Also missing is the handy reference table of what size caps fit which objectives... a topic that seems to come up in this and other forums on a regular basis.
Other than that, this archive is wonderful and seems to have some archive material that I haven't previously known to exist. I only wish my knowledge of the German language was better.
Brian, go to www.schneideroptics.com for the serial number to date list etc.

"No longer exists"
Did you see it in the new site, Dan?
I was able to get to the list and made a pdf file of it just now. However, it seems like a lot of the stuff there is broken at the moment.
Here's a little tip that worked in this case.

Goggle came back with the hit to the current page at Schneider but as many have pointed out the date tabel was gone. In addition to the link to the page, Google also had a link to a Google cache of the web page. which did have the old serial number table.
You can use the "Save As" feature of your browser to "cache" the page data on you own computer.
Of course this doesn't always work but it's worth a try.
Also, I don't know how long the Google cache will be available before it uses the new page for the cache.
