View Full Version : 'Golden' rim on lensmount

Hi there,

On my newly bought Retina Automatic III I've discovered a 'golden' rim on the lensmount of the Retina-Xenar f:2,8/45 mm lens. It looks like a coating put on it by the manufacturer. It actually looks more like copper when I look at it. Any ideas why or for what occasion this special coloured rim?

Regards, Brichma
