    Angulon 165 and 120 overall lenght

    Hello

    I recently bought an used 165mm 6.8 angulon and i was checking if everything was right, and i checked the schneider page for measurements and they have for overall lenght 30mm for the 120mm 6.8 and 35mm for the 165mm. After measuring mine 165mm it checked for 35mm but the 120 has only 29,60 or around that, measured with a precision digital vernier. Is this usual? or are the measurements anounced from schneider just a guide?

    Thanks

    I have a circa mid 1960's Schneider brochure that gives the overall lengths of the 120 and 165 mm Angulons (shutter mounted) as 29.5 mm and 34.3 mm respectively. I could speculate that the figures you give from Schneider (from their website?) are the result of rounding-off. But strictly speaking 34.3 would round-off to 34, not 35.

    I hope this helps.

    Saw your post at work this morning and needed to get home to measure my lenses.
    My 120/6.8 has a length of 30mm and my 165/6.8 a length of 33mm (no filters of course).
    The 165 is in an old Compur shutter and the 120 in a modern one. The serials are 2466854 (165) and 2530695 (120) if you want to compare the age.

    were there differences between let´s say coated ones in lenght during their manufacture history?

    thanks!
