[Rollei] Re: Mirror coating

While we're talking about coatings...

The mirror on this 3.5E2 has lost coating in patches along the right and
left edges.  It doesn't affect viewing quality -- or not in any way that
isn't rendered negligible by the Maxwell screen.  Still, this has me
wondering as well:  here's a camera that's almost mint, and yet it has
coating problems on both the front cell of the taking lens, *and* the
mirror.  Seems that fungus must have attacked very selectively.  Or is that
mirror problem something else?  It shows up, when you look through the front
viewing lens, as dark patches along the sides.
