I'm just getting into collecting the C series and have a question about chrome as opposed to black lenses.
I hear mixed reports about the chrome and yet I am not convinced that they are inferior to the black. I have the chrome 65 and I think it is excellent.
Some say the chrome is not coated - mine clearly is. Some say the shutter is inferior - in what sense?
Is it a matter of support for the repair of the lens?
I've read some of the lens test reports and the chrome seems to fare well, although it is hard to make sense of the reports. But the black is more prized on eBay.
What's the true story?
