    Hi, I have read about the lenses, was just looking around. In my country someone has a T* black lens 80mm with red numbers on the barrel. Is that different to a CT*? The picture looks different to Keh's at least.


    Thanks.

    Actually that's C vs CF (both T) but I'll leave it in case some links there help.

    To my knowledge: The Black "C" lenses were all T* lenses, while some of the earlier Silver ones were not. Optically I understand these to be the same as the later CF lenses but with a different shutter.

    I have a T* black 120 Macro lens and you can cut yourself just looking through the viewfinder.
