I haven't done any extensive comparisons, but as a generalization don't notice liking color being any less with single coated lenses. I think that has been a common feeling from folks using the Voigtlander Nokton lenses where you have comparable lenses with different coatings.

    I think the coating thing is going to come down to personal preference. And, of course, we're talking about modern (to me), coated lenses not uncoated lenses. And my use of the expression "single coated" may not be ideal either, since a lot of Nikon lenses from the late 60's and early 70's seem to have more sophisticated coatings than the very simple early coatings.

    Just wondering, as I have lots of multicoated lenses- Pentax, Nikon, Fuji, Bronica- yet there's something about my one non-multicoated lens, a 200mm f/4 Super Takumar, that is just so nice in color. I've heard people state a preference for non-multicoated lenses for B&W, which I assume has to do with a sort of classic look.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.

    Oh regarding coating. Does the pre-AI versions have a "soft" coating that will not tolerate cleaning solvents like e.g those in wet tissues for cleaning glasses?
