    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.

    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.
