MD 35/1.8 has one lens less compared to HH.As it is a case with MD 24/2.8 49mm vs MC W.Rokkor SI 24/2.8 ,I expect inferior performance i.e. lack of crispness.

BTW: FD 50/1.4 chrome nose I received today has SSC coating indeed,though not stated.Heavier and nicer to play with compared to SSC 50/1.4 and the same very good IQ

tbh, i found the 49mm filter MD 24/2.8 to be sharper and have more microcontrast in the center than the MC on aps-c (the smaller lens had more vignetting too). i'm kinda hoping the same will be true of the 35/1.8s.

I recently found a Mamiya 135/2.8 in m42 mount. I had to sand down the aperture ring otherwise I wouldn't be able to turn it. It's quite sharp wide open. Purple fringing isn't too bad too

I wonder if your chrome nose is a late version which received the coating upgrade prior to the switch to SSC branded lenses, or someone swapped elements for some reason....
My chrome nose 50/1.4 is definitely an SC lens.

Found at a pawn shop: Nikon FE, Vivitar Series1 (Komine) 70-210/2.8-4, and Vivitar Series1 (Komine) 28-90/2.8-3.5...

The body works, the long zoom works...the wide-angle has oil on the leaves that prevents auto-shutdown from F2.8 but on the Canon the aperture closes manually just fine...a perfect fit....

Nice lenses. I never could decide which I liked better; the Series 1 70-210/2.8-4 Macro VMC [Komine] or the Series 1 70-210/3.5 Macro VMC [Kino]. I think the Komine had slightly better IQ, but the Kino was super tank! (I think this came up a few pages back in time.)

Leica Summicron R 50/2 with a R8 for a rear cap

Now I need to find an adapter so I can check it out on the 5DII.

I compared front and rear lenses of the chrome and regular SSC and colour of coatings look the same as did quick test results.But who knows,maybe some nasty dwarves have swapped some lenses....

My 24/2.8 MD copy was flaring even when there was a window on the side,not in view of the lens.Strangely,when I put Hoya UV HMC super on it the amount of flare has decreased significantly.Flaring was the main reason of reselling.

Center and corner sharpness was comparable with 24/2.8 MC W.Rokkor SI.I did not noticed microcontrast difference, but my other MC W Rokkor 24/2.8 (without SI) was sharper in corners tiny bit.

I have never spotted any direct comparison between 35/1.8 MD and MC,but the ones who had used it ,reported it was a decent lens.

Zeiss Touit 12mm for my Fuji X-E1, and soon X-M1. It's a Zeiss lens, not much I can add.

Yes...(I think this came up a few pages back in time.)....that was ALSO ME....very strange/serendipity...I hadn't been on gear forums for a while...to avoid GAS lust, esp. regarding the newly issued 35mm-formfactor sensor bods...then I happen on to a couple of MF forums and read about the Series 1, and that very week I find the Kino, and 3 weeks later I find the Komine versions of the 70-210...pristine samples at that...

Both render color and contrast VERY well....as good as I've experienced with my Nikkors....VERY surprised, very pleased...these are my 1st MF zoom lenses and I'm happy to have found them...

After shooting with them I've concluded that the heavier Kino "fits" me better...it's heft is steadier in my hands and (for some unexplained reason) it's easier on my eye's ability to focus...IQ-wise I see no significant difference, any being more a factor of ME and my technique rather than with the technology...

Interestingly, I found the MF more useful in the "wild" where branches, leaves, grass all confuse AF's ability to identify what I want in focus...MF is much quicker/more accurate for me...perhaps if I had pro-bodies and pro-lenses their AF would be better in the dense brush of the woods...but for me the MF works just fine...

Well, Jc, I don't actively search out gear...THAT would too easy....I just have fun finding them at thrifts and pawnshops...almost forgot another of this week's finds: Olympus Zuiko 200F4...and I look forward to comparing it to my 2 Nikkor 200/F4 lenses the Q and AIS versions.

Sounds morally wrong, somehow. Did you not consider the Contax AX?
