I have a Rolleinar 2 set I've had for at least a decade, I think it dates from the 30's or 40's -- seems pretty old and the coatings are a bit mottled on the taking lens. Works pretty well for B&W but looking closely at color, it's evident that some chromatic distortion is introduced (absent without the Rolleinar). Does anyone know if there have been revisions or changes to the Rolleinar design? Besides being just newer, would a newer Rolleinar have a different optical design and characteristics?
