A couple of items from Olympus Digest V2 #3684 ...

I am looking at my recently acquired 35mm F/2 Zuiko lens's front
element, and it looks OK to me.  What gives?

I know about the 50mm/1.8 "Made in Japan" cult, and the quest for 
50mm/1.4 lenses with serial numbers > 1.1M, and have worn out my
page-down key scrolling thru discussions on silvernoses and 
multicoating, but this differentiation of the 24/2.8 lens is new
to me. What's the story here?

Pulling the two items together, I have had my 24/2.8 for nearly 
20 years, and never noticed any significant corner fall-off until
taking full-sky meteor-track time exposures last year.  Back to 
my normal environment of photographing illuminated objects, I have
no complaints once again.
