A seller advertising a pre-owned TOA-130 states "Coating degradation to the front element, this is a known problem with Takahashi cold applied broadband coatings"
Both my Taks were bought new & go out for special reasons only. The SW Equinoxes & my TV 85 get used most. Taks show no degradation, but my Takitis may be cured as 130 was the only other one I was interested in.
Has any Tak owner here, TOA or any model, had a lens with coating degradation? Do any other makes have coatung degradation or other defects from the manufacturing process used?
