    My understanding is: the black paint that flakes off the inside of the barrel on some lenses.

    Cheers, Bob.

    What I've usually seen described as schneideritis is a flaking off of the black paint on the inside of the lens barrel. It gives black spots on the glass an shiny spots on the barrel, but doesn't really affect the performance of the lens (very much).

    Very good description of schneider-itis. As you said, it doesn't affect the performance of the lens very much, but it sure affects the resale value. In that sense, it's similar to a lens with seperation on the front elements.
