Coming back to the original question of this thread:

"Is there any database online of legacy lens T-stop ratings?"

This is interesting. I can't remember ever seen T-values indicated for still photography lenses.

What is also interestening is that these figures indicate the same T-factors as given for much more groups containing zoom lenses.
