So I see!

That's what I'm here for.

As I said, I think part of it was the light of Venice, bloody place 
looks like its flooded! But also I noticed that there was a small 
scratch at the top of the lens. In most circumstances it does not 
seem to affect performance, but I think that in circumstances 
where flare can be a problem it is somewhat magnified. The hood 
seems to make all the difference.

Yeah, that is strange. Suppose I'll have to look for a 3.5E cap.

Oh yes, and I have a 35B AND a very battered Rolleiflex original 
as well as the cameras I mentioned in the last post. I paid £15 for 
the original, ok as it looks pretty rough and doesn't take 120 film. 
Everything is operational though.
