|I've been trying to do some research on the Steinheil lenses before I hope to purchase one, specifically Quinar series. I've not found any description of what the 'D' and 'S' in the names signify. I've also seen the 135mm listed as both "Quinar" and "Tele-Quinar". The Vademecum wasn't any help unfortunately. It mentioned a Cassar and a Cassar-S, with the S being found on different cameras, and a Quinon and Quinon-S. No clues about an underlying significance.
I've only seen the 'D' with Auto lenses, although not all of them. "Double" coated? Way too old to mean "digital" right? Unless it meant computer designed?
What about 'S'? Is it just a different mount? A newer model? Single coated? A quality indicator like Meyer's Q1 mark?
I've seen these 135/2.8 variants: (I do understand that VL refers to coatings, and Macro refers to closer minimum focus distance)
Thanks for the insights!
