I love Sonnars. And occasionally a Planar- be sure to post some shots with the Nokton. I use mine on the Nikon RF's, but it is on the Prominent right now.

This lens has white spots on the interior barrel and very fine fungus filaments wraith the rear element
The white spots are most likely from the anti-reflective paint coming off the edges of the glass. I fixed one using a Sharpie.
These are rare in LTM! I use one in a Nikon S-Mount adapter, then to M-Mount adapter.
Yes, I wonder how many were made, under 1k I think. Might be worth an overhaul. If only the rear element has fungus issues, I wonder if the prominent mount element would swap in there?
I believe they are optically identical. I had a pair of them in Prominent mount, sold one for almost $500. I wanted to complete my collection of 1949 Nikkor LTM lenses.
