Are E lenses the sames as MC lenses?

  1. I recently ordered a used 50mm f2.8E lens for my ETRS, and that was what I expected to receive!

    <p>

    The advert said 50mm f2.8 E and the supplier's invoice says 50 f2.8E but the lens itself is marked MC, unlike my 75mm lens which is marked EII.

    <p>

    Presumably MC stands for multi-coated.

    <p>

    Info elsewhere on this site, and other sites on the Internet, seems to suggest that there are 4 different lenses (ie MC, E, EII and PE) for the Bronica.

    <p>

    Should my supplier have sent me an E lens? Have I been conned, or am I being paranoid?
     
  2. Are Bronica 50mm "E" lenses marked "E" or "MC"?
     
  3. Update ...

    <p>

    Several dealers have told me that all 50mm Bronica "E" lenses were marked "MC", and that this lens has since been replaced by the "PE".

    <p>

    I'm grateful to them for this clarification, and to my supplier MXV for giving me a full refund. I have now bought a "PE" lens.
     
  4. E MC are the original ETR lense.
    Some of them was replaced by the E II lens. I believe only the E II 75mm was made.
    Then the full line of PE lenses, including the zooms. They are excellent.
