    Im still shooting the original "C"'s and have never been disappointed by performance whatsoever.

    KEH of late has been a crapshoot regarding lens ratings. Some bargains can be just that (a REAL bargain).

    Other times, not so much.

    I've owned both the CF and the CB.

    - The CB is slighty less sharp, but you need good eyes and high-res film to see & appreciate it.

    - The CB has visibly more distortion.

    - The CB has better colour saturation.

    - The CB has a much smoother focusing ring.

    - The CB is slightly 'fatter' (more difficult to get to the release button).

    Because of the distortion I sold the CB and kept the CF. But the differences are still minimal.

    The CB is easier to focus with arctic gloves on - but most normal people do't use their Hassies at very low temperatures in Spitsbergen!
