Yes, I remember my Father saying that the Pancolor was hopeless at larger apertures, and he used the 50mm 2.8 Zeiss Tessar as his standard...the Kodachromes from that still look great.

When he passed away, I sold the kit to another enthusiast, as I already had a comprehensive Pentax outfit at that time. Sometimes wish I had kept the Exactas, but perhaps that's just nostalgia.
