I have a prewar CZJ Sonnar 50mm f1.5 that was coated after the war (looks like original Zeiss but Iīm not sure). The lens is from a Contax IIIa and I use it on my M9 via a Jupiter 3 focusing helicoid.

The coatings are really good and flare is well controlled. Wide open there is always a hint of flare/coma/astigamtism and very low contrast, stopped down to 2.0 or 2.8 contrast ramps up and it delivers clear snappy shots, really impressive for such an old lens.
