Just curious - did you delete the last two digits from the lens' serial number, physically or digitally in the image? Or do you mean that someone (unknown) has physically deleted the digits for some reason? I think I've heard of this in other instances, and I don't understand why someone would do this. Is it somehow privacy related?

I deleted them in the image. Just a privacy thing to be honest.

Holy cow! Where did you find a UV-Sonnar? I've never managed to find one yet at a reasonable price.

((((I think I have enough uv lenses already though. If I had all of them then I would be done. And I'm not ready to be done yet. :lol: :lol: :lol: )))))
