    Dear Schneider Gold Dot Dagor 355mmF8 users,

    Recently I have been looking for Schneider Gold Dot Dagor and located two lens in my area.

    I found two lens, but the coating does not look the same.

    One is a lot warmer (magenta-purple at outer glass, and blue-greenish
    at center), and the other one is cooler (green at outer glass, and
    purple at center)

    any body can give me a hand?

    thanks

    Jeff

    I have such a lens. If the the lens has a MC on the front rim and is in a Compur 3 shutter, it's multi-coated late production with a reflection of deep blue. The other one is with Copal 3, single-coated and has a color of amber.
