[Rollei] Re: : [Rollei-user] SL35 Rolleinar lenses

Excuse me too Bob,
I agree with you that Mamiya MF lenses sre great, but not the 35mm format. I
have owned every Rolleinar MC. Being spoilt by Carl Zeiss, I did not
appreciate the Rolleinar lenses. The MC coating I find very inferrior to HFT
or T* on Carl Zeiss optics.

The same Rolleinars e.g. 28/2.8 HFT and 80-200/4 HFT give MUCH BRTTER COLOUR
SATURATION than Rolleinars 28/2.8 MC and 80-200/4 MC versions!

The Japanese Voigtlander lenses with AR coating I found also more satisfying
than their equivalents labelled as Rolleinars with MC coating.
