    Hi Richard,
    I could only find this info:
    "In 1973, the SWC Biogon was among the first lenses to receive the T* multicoating. Zeiss began with the wide angle lenses that benefited from the multicoating process than the longer focal length lenses." (source: http://www.gilghitelman.com/news_0005.html)

    I have the old model with a pre-T* lens. When I look at the front glass I see no coating. But when there is a bright light (like from a window) reflecting in the lens, I see a lightly purple shade in the reflection. So I'm guessing you're right in that this lens probably has a single coating of some kind.

    Hi Maris,
    Focussing is something to get used to with this camera. I was given quite some info about parallax problems with the view finder, so I hope I didn't over-comensate. We'll see when the first films are developed.
    But your tip is new to me: brilliant and simple. I'll keep it in mind.

    I'm getting me a Hasselblad SWC with 38 mm Biogon lens (and I'm happy about it)

    Yeah, it's probably SC. I have some older chrome Hasselblad glass I'm pretty sure is single-coated and some Rolleiflex TLRs and SL66 lenses that are too. Plus a number of my LF glass (Fuji) is SC too. i think we'd have to go WAY back to find uncoated lenses (my 35/3.5 Elmar for LTM is!).

    Frankly I like SC glass better oftentimes as I like a more moderate contrast in my B&W which is 99% of my film work nowadays. And with a hood flare is rarely an issue (harder with the ultra-wide glass I guess). Looking forward to seeing your results. Ever since your first post I've been itching to get back out with my 40/4 FLE CF Distagon on my 500CM but have not had the chance....

    Small update:
    I collected the developed film today from the lab:
    - 2x Fuji NPC160 (expired 2002)
    - 1x Ilford FP4+ (fresh film)
    - 1 x Fomapan 100 (fresh film)
    - 1x Kodak Portra 160 NC (fresh film)

    The B&W films were developed with Ilford DDX.

    The lab guy agreed that the films were well exposed. So the shutter is working as expected.
    Looking at the negatives I see no light leaks. In two images there is something, but I guess it is from flare.
    I have to scan these images to get a better look, but I know I made a few shots direct into the sun to see what the effect would be with this single coated lens.

    So far so good. I hope I can find some time next week to scan some negatives to get a closer look. This week is filled with work assignments and deadly deadlines....

    When I do, I'll post some scans here for your assessments.
