    Yes, I remember that thread. The original table was full of errors, incorrect statements and approximations. Whoever compiled the original table took a good stab at it, but they seemed inclined to fill in their own opinions/assumptions wherever they lacked actual data.

    Thank you Kerry, very comprehensive.
    I understand, quality-wise there is little (if any at all) reason to suspect this particular lens to be lesser then its younger copies (from ;ate 80s, early 90s), right ?

    Alex,

    There have been no changes to the design. As long as the lens is in the condition described, the performance should be quite excellent. If the age impacts anything, it might be the resale value (new "green stripe" models usually fetch a modest premium over older, unstriped samples) - but again here, condition is more important than exact age.
