Switar preset multicoated vs Switar preset (silber)
Posted 10 September 2011 - 06:31 PM
does anybody know what's the difference between a Switar preset multicoated (black, last series) and a normal Switar preset (silber housing) ?
Is there any difference in quality, sharpness or 'look', or is it only in contrast and colors ?

the silver ones are certainly coated -
stand to be corrected though

as far as I know the coatings on the last black series of lenses where better. Maybe the glass was different too. The Bolex bible says only the black ones were MC for most lenses. IIRC at least some my silver one are multi-coated. But the "normal" silver Presets are quite nice lenses anyways.

I've got often heared, that the Switars would be the 'most with newer lenses compareable old lenses' for 16mm and Super 16. (like perhaps Zeiss HighSpeeds from the late 70s)
What do you think ? Is the quality of the Switars really compareable and combinable with newer or even modern lenses ?
