Difference between 28mm f2 AI VS. AI-S?

  1. Is there a diference between the AI and AI-S versions in terms of optical Quality?

    Although both are 9 element designs, they are not identical, and the near focus distance differs (0.3 m for the AI, 0.25 m for AIS).

    In terms of practical use, I doubt the difference is significant though.
  3. I love your avatar. Now, what was the question?
  4. Thanks, Bjorn!

    I noticed on your website you rate the AI version highly. I was curious about the AI-s one... I own the AI and I was very curious.

    Unlike some people, I cannot rate a lens I haven't used :biggrin: (I own an AI myself, haven't tested the AIS variant).
  6. Oh yes... "That" "some" people we all know too well :wink:
