I want to pick up a 35/2 MF lens from KEH this week, and am faced with more choices than I expected. On the recommendation of several sources, I am tending to the factory converted (to AI) Nikkor-O, though there is also an 'OC' model (also factory converted) but I am unsure if that is any different than the 'plain' Nikkor-O.

The later AI/AIS are multicoated, though I have been advised that they have somewhat less pleasing bokeh. All I think have 8 elements and the same formula, but there are differences (later, lesser bokeh, e.g., earlier more risk of flare), and I wonder if anyone with more experience might point up the actual differences these lenses will have on real images, if any. General photography on mainly a D610 and FM2, and B&W mainly on the later.

Thanks.
