    its easy just go google the lens name ..
    schneider has a ton of info on their lenses
    and a chart to determine what vintage it is.
    just go to schneideroptics.com >> photography >> whatveryou want

    the problem with LF lenses is that some seem
    like they will cover 4x5 but ... they don't cover
    much bigger than 2x3 or 3x4 .. and vignette the corners
    (sometimes bad and sometimes worse ).
    there is a massive chart on the large format site that has
    tons of LF lenses on t, and all the information you could ask for.

I've never understood some of the silly names they have or what they mean, Kodak too, they don't make any sense... How can I tell what's better, at least with canon I know the L lens is the better one...

    Stone:

    If you have difficulty correlating product qualities with their names, whatever you do, don't:

    1) Buy a Durst enlarger (and try to figure out the accessories); or
    2) Buy a North American, Japanese, Korean, or Swedish automobile.

    Haha hey! I love my 2001 Saab 9-5 Aero and it makes perfect sense to me :-p

    I'm assuming a durst is a good enlarger? LOL

    Leica.overgaard.dk seems to disagree with your definition. Summicron was derived from Leicas use of crown glass for the first time.
    ALL Summicrons are f2 maximum aperture.
    -M says it's an M mount lens not an R or reflex lens

    Not all Summicrons have finger tabs, in fact MOST do not.
