I shot some side-by side shots with a friend with a similar camera; both with current Fuji film, it looks like my lens has a little more flare. I had the opportunity to examine the lens very well when the keeper spring came off the second shutter blade and had to disassemble the shutter. It looks like getting the front two elements apart will be difficult. There are not grooves for a lens-wrench on the lens ring. There are three spots of glue holding the lens ring in place (impervious to acetone). I'll live with a little haze between those two elements for now.
