Yes, especially the shape of the aperture. I know front cell focusing lenses don't seem to be as "in favor" as unit designs, but I have seen some front cell lenses that were/are very, very good. Most of you Ikonta's and Super Ikonta's fall into that class. It is a simpler, easier way to make a camera and that is probably why the front cell focusing design gets its bad rap. Cheap cameras almost always either had it or a fixed focus lens. I said easier to make the camera, but not easier to make the lens since it's easier to make a unit lens.
