  3. Nice looking IIIF of the same period.
     
  4. Don' t worry about the year, Keep shooting, This is a good lens and older lenses like this have all the rendering qualities into softer / dreaming or subtle recording on the film.
    It is known as less contrast too if you know something about the B&W contrast comparable to the modern Summicron lens. This can see clearly on a digital M than on a film body.
