Yep - no question about that... Still, I enjoy mine on my Spotmatic II (which will soon take a CLA trip).

Yes. Definitely different. I added a picture of my own lens (taken with my broken cel phone hence potato quality) in or around the same angle - you can tell they're different.

Thanks for the enlightenment, I did not know that. I own the 7-element variant, and really like it's results. I've never ran across the 8-element, but I've seen them listed and they're on demand.

Apparently, the rears on the 7-element and 8-element will not match... so much for that Frankenstein-idea...

A 7-element is an easier/cheaper find... Wonder what would happen if you did the swap with the rear of a 7-element (I think that on the 7-element ones, the rear glass is the infamous thorium glass)...
