    David, are you sure about this? I had my C lens SWC/M overhauled in 03 in the New Jersey location. At that time I was told that the only parts that were unavailable were cosmetic pieces for the silver C lenses, and that shutter parts were abundant, and the whole situation was overblown.

    So when i gather the info together for the black T* lens:

    1) Spare parts
    probably in the future it can get more problematic when spares are needed

    2) 50 ring where the 50 CF has a 60 bayonet (all my other lenses are 60 to)

    3) Flare. The black 50 lens has more flare due to the older coating.


    Thanks for your help!
    I think i will search for a CF. Probably the lens has to stay with me for the next 40 years so that $3 per year extra for the cf lens....

    Slight correction: A black C lens has more flare than a black CF lens.

    The rest is correct.
