Number 3 was the best, I kept that for a while, before I let that one go as well.
Incidentally it was the one with the full metal focus ring, which I also like most from appearance point of view (not that it would really matter).

The yellow tint was present with all of them, though. Could be removed with WB settings but as I said, it was more the case with the Rokkors than with all other lenses I owned.
I don't expect a difference now, but I try to be open minded.

You can correct the tint with WB settings but you cannot correct the lower transmission of blue light, that is lost.

the yellowing can of course be corrected easily with application of UV light from a UV-led flashlight or other sources. I cleared a couple this way.

Love mine - it's perfect! The focusing is of course an issue on a stock 20D, especially at 1.2, but practice makes perfect..

Spent allmost all monday just practicing snapping moving targets at 36 degrees in Shibuya:
