Could anyone offer any tips on evaluating lens glass, especially with no means to film test this lens.
I have attached six photos from an Angenieux 9.5 - 95 lens (Camflex mount I have posted about earlier). At the front glass I can see at least seven or so blemishes plus a few more around the perimeter. (There is also an extremely fine scratch about 1/2 inch long no clearly visible in photos.)
At the back element photos numerous specs are visible.
Taking the lens outside and looking through it, a dark spec or two appear to move with the image.
I know this is nebulous, and clearly the less seen on the glass the better, but any comments would be appreciated. Thank you.
