gb hill, the lens really didn't look that bad when I used a flash light through it. But the person I bought it from said it had haze and needed a cleaning. Maybe because it is a 35mm lens that makes it more susceptible to haze showing. I ran the test roll and you saw the difference. The images exposed outside with the sun to my back were even worse; no contrast. Into the sun, horrible. I would say that if it has haze, and you can see it easily with a flashlight and with a little difficulty just looking though the lens, you will have some degree of degradation. The wide angle supposition is just my guess, no data.
