Yes, that can be the "rub"... If you are using Kodak projection lenses,
you might as well be shooting through "Vaseline" coated lenses.

I was amazed what I discovered in projection settings once I sprang for
some Navitar Gold lenses.  I have never quite understood this, quite
honestly.  We pay a minor fortune on top quality 35mm lenses for our
cameras and then project the slide results with lenses from the "dark
ages" (excuse the pun)...

At least, and, I suspect, in many more ways ;-)

I'm wondering if there are currently available either black and white
digital film backs or or digital cameras.  I'd think that a true
non-(Bayer pattern matrix) filtered CCD could produce a pretty nice high
res black and white image digitally.  Is there such a beast and has
anyone used one?
