    Get CF lenses, you will be happy. Earlier posts explained the differences.

    I would also second the CF lens. The CB is of lesser quality as it's a slightly cheaper design with fewer lens elements than the CT, CF, CFi/CFE lenses.

    The 80mm C, CT, and CF lenses all have the same lens design. The difference is in the coatings and the shutter.

    The C is the earliest version and has single coatings and a Compur shutter. The *t version is the same lens, but the lens elements are now multicoated. The CF uses the same optics as the C*T, but now the lens is in a Prontor shutter. The CF also lacks a self timer and does not have the moving depth of field indicators.

    The earlier Compur shutters are very good and used on many cameras/lenses - they are easily serviced by any competent repairman. So a C*T might be your best bet for your budget.

    All of them are great Planar lens design - same as is used in the highest model Rolleiflexes, you really can't go wrong with any (except the CB). I have the older C version and it is sharp as you could wish.

    Get the 100mm CF, now, that's a heck of an optic, mate!

    Cheers
