    My understanding is that the surface finish deteriorates with time due to the older "inferior" coating technique. It's only the early X-metal plasmas that do this apparently. Now they're pretty desirable.

    Sure, it makes sense. I thought it might be an oxidation depending on location or something.

    Aged like fine wine though. Better with age

    And I have the same understanding, @cacatman. Seriously cool pickup, those lenses are outstanding too!
