    Well....what's the answer?! I have a 50mm 1.8 and was looking to get a 1.4 in non-ai so it will match my F2.

    The "C" indicates multi-coated, as opposed to single coated

    yup the S stands for 7 elements, all lenses were sigle coated, the c meant that it was multi coated, hence the magenta cast in the s and the green cast in the sc
