    Schneider Super Angulon versions

    I've found a Schneider Super Angulon 90mm 5.6 for a good price.
    It looks to be an older version as it has a chrome/silver shutter speed ring instead of black.

    Does anyone know if there are any other differences between the older and newer versions other than just aesthetic?

    Thanks!

    What's the serial number?

    10 993 013, which if I just checked correctly, puts it at the 1967 mark. Didn't realise it was that old! Looks much newer. Presumably a lens that old isn't multi-coated?

    No it's not Multi-Coated but by then Schneider and Rodenstock's coatings were very good, I have no problems with my similar aged Super Angilons they are remarkably flare free.
