Thanks. I always enjoy reading your posts. I recently got a 50mm Auto SC to play with and your observations about how this lens formula performs match mine very closely.

I like the look and feel of the scalloped metal ring, but I live in a climate that never gets very cold.

Optically similar yes, but not identical. The schematics I have seen (from old Nikon Dealer Sales Manuals) show slightly different spacing and curvature. The K/New Nikkor focuses closer (0.45m) than the Nikkor-S.C (0.6m) so the optics were probably tweaked to improve performance at close range.

I'm not doing repairs, but quite interested in the detailed observations you made about behaviour and usability.
