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?


Rui Lourosa
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.
