Yes, it’s that soft…

Do you know how rare it is to find a lens from the 1950s that isn’t scratched to hell, or at least loaded with cleaning marks?  Pretty rare indeed.  In fact, I had been holding off cleaning it until I got myself a UV filter for it (41mm is a pretty rare size for filters).  The plan was to clean it as gently as possible, screw the filter on, and never take it off again.  Good plan, but guess what…my best wasn’t gentle enough, and looking through the glass now, I wouldn’t call this lens near-mint condition anymore.  Ugh…
