    Dan,

    I have many Schneider lenses and it only ever happened to a lens that was stored in a very damp basement over the winter. Other stuff that was stored there was also damaged.

    The lens is like new after I had the lacquer reapplied.

    I've used both lacquer and enamel to repaint the sides of lenses, I prefer a couple thin coats of lacquer. To me enamel seems to go on too thickly. Yes, even when I try to apply light coats.

    I think that my lens was not so carefully stored by the previous owner: it smells and has Schneideritis. But it is a new lens I purchased from ebay for a very good price. It came in its original box and papers, was in a paper sort of lens board. But the box smelled, the lens smelled and there are bubbles.
    Probably it was stored in a not so healthy place (something like a bad wine cellar...) that's why Schneideritis came.
    Do you think I have to send it to Schneiders? It is not pricy? I do not think that those bubbles affects the quality of my images, I was afraid Schneideritis will get worse and worse causing other problems
    Thank you

    "Schneideritis" causes no known problems. I have no idea what causes it, but in my experience Schneider lenses seem to be less susceptible than those of Rodenstock and Zeiss. or maybe I don't have enough lenses of the afflicted vintages?

    Carsten,

    I agree with Ole... it's not a big deal! And, if the lens were mine, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Since it's in your possession, why not take it out and expose some film to make absolute sure that there IS no impact. That's what I'd do.

    Lastly, even if a lens is well taken care of, the Schneideritis could still happen!

    Cheers
